"Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid hasn't worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!" Trump wrote

Trump’s tweets follow a tense few weeks between the United States and North Korea. On the floor of the United Nations, Trump and the North Korean foreign minister traded accusations and threatsOn Oct. 1, Trump tweeted that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should save his “energy, we’ll do what has to be done.”

Last week, Trump had dinner with military leaders and their spouses. Before the event, he called in the press corps and directed them to take a picture of the group. Surrounded by his military top-brass, the president remarked, “You know what this represents? It could be the calm before the storm.” However, he hasn’t remarked what “the storm” he alluded to might be, and some suspect he was just playing up the cameras.

In response, the United States has flown bombers right up to the border and run military exercises with the South Koreans.

The fast-food giant said its newest menu item will only be available at one restaurant — Tampere, Finland — and for a limited time, Elite Daily reported. The burger will be available through Oct. 21, Fox News reported.

The burger consists of mustard, pickles, onion, lettuce, tomato and a soy-based patty on a sesame seed bun. Food & Wine reported the McDonald's Finland also serves vegan fries, but that's just because their fry recipe is vegan by default (McDonald's fries in the U.S. are made with a hydrolyzed milk, and therefore not technically vegan), Fox News reported.

A McDonald’s spokesman told Today that the company was not planning to offer the burger anywhere else — for now.

British author wins Nobel Prize for Literature

Praised for his “novels of great emotional force,” English author Kazuo Ishiguro was named the winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature, The Guardian reported Thursday.

>> Read more trending news

Born in Japan, Ishiguro’s family moved to the United Kingdom when he was 5, The Guardian reported. His first novel, “A Pale View of the Hills,” was published in 1982.

The Swedish Academy, which conducts the judging, said the themes of “memory, time and self-delusion” were major components of Ishiguro’s work, particularly in his 1989 work, “The Remains of the Day.” That novel won the Booker Prize in 1989 and was adapted into a film starring Anthony Hopkins as the “duty-obsessed” butler Stevens.

Permanent secretary of the academy Sara Danius described Ishiguro’s writing as a mix of the works of Jane Austen and Franz Kafka, “but you have to add a little bit of Marcel Proust into the mix, and then you stir, but not too much, and then you have his writings.

“He’s a writer of great integrity. He doesn’t look to the side, he’s developed an aesthetic universe all his own,” she told The Guardian. “He is someone who is very interested in understanding the past, but he is not a Proustian writer, he is not out to redeem the past, he is exploring what you have to forget in order to survive in the first place as an individual or as a society.”

Russia meddled in election to 'create chaos at every level,' congressional investigators say

The investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election continues, congressional investigators said on Wednesday, emphasizing at a news conference that the interference appears to be ongoing but that investigators have yet to reach conclusions on allegations of collusion.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said that investigators had yet to determine whether Russia aimed to help any particular side in November.

“It seems that the overall theme of the Russian involvement in the U.S. election was to create chaos at every level,” he said.

Burr and the committee’s vice chairman, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, warned that the investigation has indicated that Russian agents are continuing efforts to influence results at the ballot box.

"The Russian intelligence service is determined (and) clever, and I recommend that every campaign and every election official take this very seriously as we move into this November's election, and as we move into preparation for the 2018 election," Burr said.

North Korea says ‘millions’ ready to fight US

If tensions between the United States and North Korea lead to war, the followers of Kim Jong-Un are apparently ready to fight, USA Today reported.

>> Read more trending news

North Korea's state media reported that 4.7 million of its citizens have volunteered to join or re-enlist in the military since leader Kim threatened to "tame” President Donald Trump “with fire" last week.

Previously, North Korea has claimed that its citizens have volunteered to join the military as part of propaganda campaigns to boost solidarity, according to the South Korean news agency, Yonhap.

The North Korean military enlistment claims came after Kim issued a statement Friday warning: "I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire," USA Today reported.

The North Korean leader spoke out after Trump told the U.N. General Assembly in New York that if “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

During an event at the Invictus Games Toronto 2017, a toddler seized her chance as the adults talked, and helped herself to the royal popcorn, Mashable reported.

When he notices Emily Henson’s little hands going from popcorn box to mouth, Harry jokingly removes temptation and then picks out the prime popcorn to give to the 2-year-old, the Telegraph reported

He then chats with her and her mother and other neighboring spectators. He also made silly faces and stuck his tongue out at her as the cameras watched their every move.

At one point, Emily took such a shine to the prince that she leaned on his knee as the volleyball match continued. 

Emily’s father, David Henson, is a paralympian who had both of his legs amputated when an IED exploded in Afghanistan in 2011, The Telegraph reported.

Since first competing in the Invictus Games in 2014, Henson has become a friend to Prince Harry.

Harry is no stranger to children, as he is the godfather to six of his friends’ children and believes he does a good job with them.

“I think the key to that is to be able to grow up, but also be able to stay in touch with your childhood side,” Harry told The Telegraph.

The games run until Saturday. There are 550 competitors from 17 countries taking part in 12 sports during the week-long event.
