Abraham Denmark, a former deputy assistant secretary of Defense for East Asia, said the mixed messages coming from the Trump administration were problematic because they could create confusion for both allies and adversaries."Our adversaries and our allies are getting very mixed messages from the Trump administration, and this is why you need to have experienced people in government," he said.

They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before," he said."Make no mistake: North Korea is a real threat, but the President's unhinged reaction suggests he might consider using American nuclear weapons in response to a nasty comment from a North Korean despot," Engel said."President Trump's comments were not helpful and once again show that he lacks the temperament and judgment to deal with the serious crisis the United States confronts," Cardin said.
My chance doesn't come until April next year, so I can play well; but, if Jordan plays better, then Jordan plays better and I take my hat off to him and he's done something that the game's only seen a couple of times."No one would guarantee Mc Ilroy the Wanamaker Trophy this week, but if ever you were to pencil in a player to win a major championship at a specific venue, his name would be the one to scribble down next to "PGA, Quail Hollow, 2017."The Northern Irishman fired a final-round 62 to win his first PGA Tour title at the course in 2010, then won at Quail Hollow again in 2015 after a playoff loss against Rickie Fowler in 2012.
