Ambassador Nikki Haley says Trump doesn't want war with North Korea

Wednesday 23:42 GMT

After President Trump delivered some of his harshest threats directed at the North Korean regime at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley tells "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday that Mr. Trump doesn't actually want to go war with the North Koreans. "No one wants war, the president doesn't want war, we tried to do this through dialogue, we tried to do this through sanctions we've tried every diplomatic matter we can, and we're not giving up on that," said Haley, appearing to shift from Mr. Trump's warning of "total destruction" in his first speech to the General Assembly.

‘I have decided’: Donald Trump says of Iran deal prior to sitdown with Hassan Rouhani

Today 02:28 GMT

“I have decided,” President Donald Trump declared Wednesday, announcing he’d reached a verdict on the Iran nuclear deal’s future even as top U.S. and Iranian officials headed into their highest-level talks of his presidency. Iran’s leader, meanwhile, lashed out at “ignorant, absurd and hateful rhetoric” in response to Trump’s blistering attack at the U.N.

Iran threatens to restart nuclear program if U.S. continues with sanctions. Shortly afterward, Vice President Mike Pence told the U.N. Security Council that Iran “continues to flout the spirit of the Iran deal, destabilizing the region and brazenly threatening the security of sovereign nations,” a toned-down version of the diatribe delivered by Trump in a General Assembly speech to fellow world leaders Tuesday.

Hundreds of jubilant supporters of Aung San Suu Kyi gathered in Yangon on Tuesday to watch their country’s leader give her first public address on the Rohingya crisis.

More than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar’s northern Rakhine state to neighbouring Bangladesh since Rohingya insurgents attacked dozens of police posts in late August, prompting a massive military crackdown.

The ongoing delusions of Hillary Clinton

Today 05:12 GMT

Hillary Clinton should have paid more attention to her husband's former adviser Paul Begala, who once said, "Never interrupt your opponent when he's destroying himself."

It gives Democrats yet another reason to ask why Hillary Clinton won't get off the stage so they can pick up from the debacle of 2016 and find ways to connect to the voters she managed to lose.
