Experts at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think-tank said in an analysis that by meeting Xi, Kim may be seeking an insurance policy that "even if summit talks fail with the USA that North Korea could still fall back on its relationship with China". Trump also touted the infrastructure investments during a visit to Cincinnati in June. But he says: "You're probably going to have to wait until after the election".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, a close ally of the president, is anxious about a less than ideal outcome. Lawmakers are increasingly focused on their re-elections this fall in what is set to be a hard campaign cycle for Republicans.

Trump said Democrats don't want to work with him on infrastructure because they don't want to give him any additional "wins" after his tax bill passed in December. Trump may be suggesting that a prospective nuclear deal with North Korea is desired by South Korea, so by delaying it the USA could extract better trade terms with the South. But he warned, "I may hold it up until after a deal is made with North Korea".

The White House had a measured reaction to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's visit to Beijing and meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping, while preserving the notion that it was US President Donald Trump who provided the impetus for the diplomatic breakthrough. Administration officials acknowledged the obstacles in winning congressional approval for the spending projects, but said Trump remains committed to the issue.

President Trump, besieged by an adult-films star's allegations of an affair as well as the expanding Russian Federation investigation, emerged Thursday from a week of seclusion to jet to OH to promote his plan to fix the nation's ailing roads and other infrastructure. Thursday marks his first public appearance in almost a week. His speech comes a day after the President's Council of Economic Advisers released a report claiming the proposal could employ as many as 414,000 additional infrastructure workers over 10 years.

"We will transform our roads and bridges from a source of endless frustration into a source of incredible pride", he said.

The president's visit to OH was meant to be a push for upgrades to the nation's aging roads and bridges.

The president is trumpeting his sweeping $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan, which he unveiled earlier this year to fulfill a marquee campaign promise, but which has received only tepid support from Congress.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the briefing included a "personal message from President Xi to President Trump", which was conveyed to the president. Trump, through his representatives, has denied the 2006 affair.
