White House Punts France's Demand for Tariff Exemption

South Koreans have lived for decades under the threat of war with their hostile and now nuclear-armed neighbour

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said at a press briefing that U.S. President Donald Trump plans to continue the "maximum pressure" campaign of economic and diplomatic sanctions until the North takes actions toward denuclearization. "We've seen some steps in the right direction, but we have a long way to go". "Denuclearization. What does that mean to the president, and what do you think that means to the North Koreans?"

But Sanders said the US wouldn't make the mistake of past administrations in taking the North Koreans "simply at their word".

Trump is expected to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in May or June to talk about dismantling the regime's nuclear weapons program.

Asked how the president defines denuclearization, Huckabee Sanders responded, "it means that North Korea doesn't have or isn't testing nuclear missiles".

The Trump administration wants action from Pyongyang. We've been beyond cooperative with them. Federal agents raided his home, hotel room and office earlier this month, seizing financial records, communications between him and his clients and materials related to payments to two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump.

"Certainly, the goal is denuclearisation of the peninsula".

South Korea has said that the North has expressed interest in doing away with its nuclear weapons.

Sanders' comments came after she was asked to clarify a tweet Trump sent on Friday claiming that the special counsel was appointed based on an "illegal act" from former FBI Director James Comey. At least five non-US venues are being looked at for the summit.

The television newsman added that "there's not many preconditions the United States is asking for".
