As Blasting News reported, all 100 senators were invited to a classified briefing on the White House grounds over the building tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. The biggest story was about how many strange senators felt it was for a briefing to be held there when it could have very well have been handled in a secret room on Capitol Hill.

As for the briefing itself, senators came out of it saying that they didn't learn anything new that they couldn't already get out of a newspaper.

As to the issue of why they held the meeting on the White House grounds, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that it was more of a logistical arrangement between the President and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

At the same time, he also threw cause of the meeting to the Senate saying that it was their meeting and they were just utilizing the administration's space. As the mentioned Blasting News article said briefly, Trump suggested that the meeting is held at the White House. The briefing was put together after the Senate requested updates on the administration's diplomatic clashes with North Korea.

Nonetheless, the issues presented in the meeting likely haven't changed and are seen the same way very much as they were reported in many media outlets, including Blasting News. Many different takes on the briefing already fall under media's measurement of the President's accomplishments as the briefing took place during the final week to complete President Trump's 100-days marker.

North Korea seemed to also mark the occasion by firing another ballistic missile before it "disintegrated" 44 miles above. It's been said that the North Koreas might have intentionally detonated the missile as they had already made their point that they would continue to test launch more ballistic missiles, no matter who they upset.

China sides with U.S.

The launch itself has been considered a clear violation of U.N. resolutions, which the South Korean government was forced to remind the North of. But this has been common with every launch. President Trump has already gone past that mark and threatened to conduct military strikes on the DPRK (another word for the North Korean government) in order to force them to stop.

Blasting News has reported on some of the negotiations the U.S. has considered with China's cooperation, where they would try to rein in the DPRK with trade restrictions. But it's been reported that the restrictions on flights between China and the DPRK have now been lifted which could be a sign of some flexibility.

In a recent press briefing with a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Lu Kang said that they were happy with the U.S. being more restrained with their actions against North Korea, saying that the DPRK had disrespected China with their latest missile launch.
