    Trump blasts media for not reporting success of his North Korea summit

    President Donald Trump is blasting the 'fake news' for not reporting the success out of his North Korea summit as he heads to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The president complained there hasn't been positive media coverage of the lack of missiles or rockets fired in nine months from the rogue state as concerns have emerged about what concessions he might give to Moscow and how there appears to be no clear agenda for his sit down with Putin. 'There hasn't been a missile or rocket fired in 9 months in North Korea, there have been no nuclear tests and we got back our hostages. Who knows how it will all turn out in the end, but why isn't the Fake News talking about these

He added that further talks would start on Monday to arrange details including the transfer of remains already held in North Korea.

    Despite detente, sanctions on North Korea fan TB epidemic

    PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Doctor O Yong Il swings open a glass door with a bright orange biohazard sign and gestures to the machine he hoped would revolutionize his life's work. It's called the GeneXpert and it's about the size of a household microwave oven. As chief of North Korea's National Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory, Dr. O saw it as a godsend. Tuberculosis is North Korea's biggest public health problem. With this American-made machine, his lab would be able to complete a TB test in just two hours, instead of two months. It took years, but Dr. O got the machines, only to discover that GeneXpert needs cartridges he can't replace. It's not entirely clear what about the cartridges would

    Trump could be even more vulnerable in a summit with Vladimir Putin than he was with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

    Current and former US officials sounded the alarm about President Donald Trump's upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. "I'm afraid," a former State Department told The New Yorker in a story published on Friday. "Our guy here is like an amateur boxer going up against Muhammad Ali." "There's no stopping him," a senior White House official reportedly told veteran journalist and New Yorker writer Susan Glasser in June. "He wants to have a meeting with Putin, so he's going to have a meeting with Putin." Citing interviews with more than a dozen former senior officials who worked for Republican and Democratic presidents, Glasser indicated there is "no historical precedent for Trump's
