Calm before storm: Trump leaves everyone guessing on N Korea, Iran move

President Donald Trump spoke Friday in the East Room of the White House in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, but a radiant first lady Melania Trump stole the spotlight. And he used an exaggerated Spanish accent several times while saying the territory's name.

President Trump met with his senior military staff and said they would discuss IS, Iran, and North Korea over dinner then he called a group photo with his staff and their spouses, "the calm before the storm" without an explanation. "I don't know if it's Goldman Sachs but whoever it is, you can wave goodbye to that". (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. "You'll find out", he said. The fourth time that Trump said Puerto Rico, Trump said it the way a guy like the president might say Puerto Rico. "But we'll certainly keep you posted", Sanders said in response.

"Could be the calm before the storm", the president said.

Trump saw fit to praise Latinas for the growth in businesses lead by Hispanic-American females, much to the delight of those screaming in the crowd.
