President Trump touted his participation in a White House meeting with business leaders who are part of his strategic and policy forum.

When President Trump plucked conservative members of Congress to fill his Cabinet, it set off a slew of special elections -- starting with Tuesday's contest in Kansas.

These were supposed to be no-brainer affairs.

Trump easily won the Wichita, Kan.-area district held by Mike Pompeo, now the CIA director, since 2011. The opening offered an easy elevation for the party-picked candidate, Ron Estes, the state treasurer.

Trump re-tweeted a Fox News article on Syrians who were grateful for the airstrike in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack by Bashar Assad last week.

President Donald Trump escalated his rhetoric against North Korea on Tuesday, writing on Twitter that the country "is looking for trouble" and encouraging North Korea's neighbor China to "solve the problem."

Trump signed the message: "U.S.A."

In a second message, Trump said he told China's President Xi Jinping during his visit to Florida last week that China would get a better trade deal with the U.S. if Xi helped rein in North Korea's missile program, apparently linking China's cooperation on security issues with its economic actions.
