President Donald Trump says he doesn't see a role for the U.S.to play in helping stabilize Libya.
"I think we'll get both", he said. "We have a role everywhere".
"As far as North Korea is concerned, we're in very good shape. And that role will come to an end at a certain point, and we'll be able to go back home and rebuild our country, which is what I want to do", Trump concluded.

"I told President Trump that we have confidence, even though this is a hard moment, in the future of the European Union and certainly in the importance of the relationship between the U.S. and Italy", he said.
"I believe that one clear goal should be this: We need the region, and we need countries like Egypt and Tunisia that are close to Libya. A divided country in conflict would make stability worse", Gentiloni said. Yet he pointedly stopped sort of telegraphing whether or not the US would stay in.
The US president said it was a "great honour" to meet the Italian leader and that their two countries had "a deep link and a strong friendship". Trudeau said the upcoming summit and a broad range of global issues would form part of his talks with Gentiloni.
Italy now spends a little over 1 percent of its GDP on the military alliance.
Trump is also offering condolences from the U.S.to the people of France. "Again, it's happening it seems", Trump said, adding that he saw reports of it when he was first walking in.
"Another terrorist attack in Paris".
President Donald Trump is taking the unusual step of weighing in publicly ahead of a foreign presidential election, predicting that the latest attack in Paris will have a "big effect" on voters there.
Trump also asserted he had been talking trade with China.
Italy has been on the front lines of a migrant crisis that has stretched financial resources and wrought political turmoil across the European Union as millions of asylum-seekers and migrants have sought refuge in Europe.
It was unclear how Trump concluded that terrorism may have been a factor. " The prime minister's visit comes a month prior to Mr. Trump's scheduled visit to Italy for his first G7 summit, where the leaders of the U.S., Italy, Germany, Canada, France, Japan and Britain will discuss the economy and, likely, national and global security issues".
