President Trump Remarks at the White House

He was joined by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), both of whom made brief remarks as well. The president, Speaker Ryan, and Majority Leader McConnell all expressed disappointment that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) earlier in the day declined the invitation to attend the meeting. Defense Secretary Mattis was also in the room and provided a few additional details on the North Korean missile launch, saying, “it went higher, frankly, than any previous shot they’ve taken.” close
