President Trump: We Aren't Restarting Military Exercises With South Korea

North Korea will reportedly host its own cryptocurrency and blockchain conference

President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused China of complicating Washington's relationship with North Korea but says his relationships with Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un are great. "We hope that the U.S. would honour its pledges and commitments and play a positive and constructive role in settling this issue, just like we Chinese people do", CNN quoted Hua as saying.

"Part of the North Korea problem is caused by the trade disputes with China", Trump said. "The US should look at itself to find out what is wrong instead of shifting blame onto others". 'China makes it much more hard in terms of our relationship with North Korea, ' Trump said at the White House on Wednesday, though he insisted his ties with Chinese President Xi Jinping were 'great'. Trump said China was to blame for the aborted trip, alleging that Beijing was preventing denuclearisation by not acting, reported the South China Morning Post.

"We know that China is providing North Korea with considerable aid, including money, fuel, fertilizer and various other commodities".

Others were a little more explicit in their feelings of what C.K.'s return means to the #MeToo movement. Club owner Noam Dworman told The Wrap that he received "sustained applause" for his 15-minute set.

US President Donald Trump ruled out on Wednesday that his administration was planning future military exercises with South Korea, but also warned that he could "instantly" relaunch them and that if he did, they would be "far bigger than ever before".

Per Vox, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and National Security Adviser John Bolton are against the move, worrying that the North Koreans would just lie about denuclearizing and would back out when they get what they want-a reason that Pompeo is pushing for denuclearization first-and that an official end to the war would let the North Koreans demand that all USA troops leave South Korea.

China, North Korea's traditional ally and main trading partner, joined the USA in adopting tough global sanctions against Pyongyang in 2017, which the Chinese government says it is still enforcing.

Trump Announces Historic Trade Deal With Mexico: Canada Next?
US stock markets rallied, with the benchmark S&P 500 and the Nasdaq hitting all-time highs, pulling oil prices up. If the parties agree to continue with no changes, it will be renewed for another 16 years.

Efforts stalled several weeks ago, and last week, Trump ordered Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to cancel a planned trip to Pyongyang.

At their June summit in Singapore, both leaders agreed broadly to work toward the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Pressure has been mounting on Trump to explain why his much-vaunted talks with North Korea in June have yet to deliver any results, with Pyongyang failing to show any concrete steps towards its promise of denuclearizing the region.

Mexico minister says trying to get NAFTA deal as soon as possible
It remains unclear how USA and Mexican negotiators would frame any announcement about the completion of work on their issues. Companies operating across North America have anxious that some of Trump's demands could hurt the region's economy .
