President Donald Trump's cryptic comment as he posed for pictures with top military leaders Thursday is drawing scrutiny.

"Tell us", shouted out one of the reporters summoned to witness the photo session. Trump asked. "Maybe it's the calm before the storm".

When asked what he meant by it, Trump said. "Could be the calm, the calm before the storm". (Because what else do you do when the leader of the most powerful country cracks a awful joke?) But the internet responded a little differently.

On Friday, Trump and his spokesman repeatedly declined to clarify the remark. Trump made the comment to reporters as he was leaving the White House to attend a private fundraiser in North Carolina. "As he said last night in addition to the comments, you'll have to wait and see", Sanders said.

Trump also told Huckabee in the interview, which touched broadly and in quick succession on a handful of major issues facing Trump's administration, that if it were up to him, the United States would not have gone into Iraq.

Washington Post White House correspondent Ashley Parker said that people should push past Trump's smoke screen of words and watch "what he actually decides".

The Jaguars have now forced 15 turnovers in five games - two more takeaways than they forced in the entire 2016 season. Bryant has been one of Ben Roethlisberger's top targets this season with 10 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown.

Concerns about Trump's stability and intentions are already rising overseas, following his odd remark to reporters last week that a photo-op in which he was surrounded by generals was "the calm before the storm".

Then, when asked what he meant by "storm", he ominously answered, "You'll find out". Blue House National Security Office director Chung Eui-yong previously reported at a September 27 dinner meeting with President Moon Jae-in and the leaders of four political parties that further provocations were expected from Pyongyang around either October 10 or October 18, when the Chinese Communist Party National Congress is taking place.

President Donald Trump said on Saturday he has a good relationship with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, but sometimes he would like Tillerson to be a "little bit tougher". "In a Twitter message on October 7, Trump wrote, "[American] Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid. hasn't worked".

"We can not allow this dictatorship to threaten our nation or allies with unimaginable loss of life", he said, vowing to "do what we must do to prevent that from happening and it will be done, if necessary".

Trump, meanwhile, has yet to explain what will happen if Iran reacts to U.S. attempts to renegotiate the nuclear deal, and impose new terror-related sanctions, by trying to break out toward the nuclear threshold.
