U.S. special envoy for Pyongyang talks to meet counterparts from two Koreas

Democrats select Stacey Abrams to deliever SOTU response

Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel told the lawmakers that the regime in Pyongyang was also "committed to developing a long-range nuclear-armed missile that would pose a direct threat to the United States". But following a meeting with his intelligence leaders on Thursday, Trump issued another series of posts, this time blasting the press for having "mischaracterized" and "distorted" what was said at the hearing.

Coats and other officials presented an update to the Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday on their annual assessment of global threats. "They have no clue as to the danger they would be inflicting on our Country".

A United States negotiator has called on North Korea to provide a detailed account of its weapons to seal a peace deal. "Happily, we had a very good meeting, and we are all on the same page!".

The Democratic leader then called for an "immediate meeting" between Trump and his intelligence officers so they could "educate" the president about what's really going on with national security.

Pyongyang has been demanding that the United States take steps corresponding to its denuclearization measures, but the USA maintains that the North's steps have been insufficient and that sanctions will remain until complete denuclearization is achieved. Intelligence officials did offer scenarios in which Iran could back away from a 2015 nuclear agreement during Senate Intelligence Committee testimony Tuesday.

Pelosi said Trump's comments were "stunning".

The president said he hadn't seen the report from his Intelligence officials, but argued their assessments are not accurately covered by the media.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump tweeted: "I look forward to seeing Kim Jong Un shortly".

"No, I disagree with certain things that they said", Trump replied.

Trump claimed he was "very much in agreement" with the intelligence community's assessment of USA threats, despite his intelligence chiefs suggesting otherwise on many occasions. "I don't think it's any great secret", Trump said. "It was a frightful one-sided deal".

Mr Trump added: "We've made tremendous progress with North Korea".

"This is the same President who stood on stage in Helsinki and told the world he believed Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence leaders", Warner said, referring to a summit meeting a year ago between Trump and the Russian president.

"I have this flawless outcome moment where the last nuclear weapon leaves North Korea, the sanctions are lifted, the flag goes up in the embassy and the treaty is signed in the same hour", Biegun said at Stanford University.

Trump has expressed optimism that his negotiation style will lead to a nuclear deal with the leader. In doing so, they said, Iran has at least temporarily lessened the nuclear threat.

If diplomacy doesn't work, the USA has unspecified "contingencies", he added.

Trump lashed out at the intelligence services in an unusually public row the day after the testimony, tweeting: "The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran".
