Human rights advocates and foreign policy experts condemned President Trump's comment Monday that he'd be "honored" to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong Un - saying it undermines global efforts to isolate one of the world's most brutal dictators.
President Donald Trump says he'd be open to meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, under the right circumstances.
Trump has said that, along some parts of the country's southern border, fencing might be more appropriate than a giant concrete-and-steel wall.
During his daily briefing, White House press secretary Sean Spicer had an interesting exchange with Breitbart reporter Charlie Spiering about the size of Donald Trump's planned wall along the border between the United States and Mexico.
"Pyongyang has been playing off Beijing and Moscow for half a century, letting them compete for the right to aid and influence North Korea".

"What the president is signaling is that there is always an opportunity to talk, but that is very far from saying there are no preconditions", Carafano said.

"North Korea does not care about China's pressure or sanctions because there is Russian Federation next door", said Leonid Petrov, a North Korea expert at Australia National University, told Reuters. "And I think that's frankly what the president was doing".
As a way to get official clarification of those remarks, New York Times correspondent Glenn Thrush asked Spicer during Monday's press briefing if it was a "project that is now being working on by the [White House Counsel's Office]" and what the general status of the effort might be.
The White House spokesman also defended the decision of the US President to meet his Philippines counterpart Rodrigo Duterte.
"I think that's the view of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
"I'm not going to get ahead of their discussions".
The comment was the latest from Trump striking a more conciliatory tone in what had seemed an escalating standoff over North Korea's stepped-up missile tests and nuclear ambitions.
Some academics have argued that Kim Jong-un could be looking for Russian Federation to ease any pain if China steps up sanctions against North Korea.
Obama canceled a meeting with Duterte on the sidelines of an overseas summit previous year after the Philippine leader offered a coarse insult when asked his response to USA concerns about the drug crackdown.
Spicer says the administration welcomes the inquiry announced Thursday by Maryland Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings. The White House insisted late Tuesday that they are withholding no documents. "There's obviously a paper trail", he said.
That's a "right." And Bernie Sanders is expected to apologize for campaigning for a candidate who's not stoked enough about it. On Monday, Sanders kicked off the red-state tour with Perez, who narrowly defeated Sanders' preferred choice for the job, Rep.
