>> reporter: good morning, phillip. this stop in beijing, china, may be the most complex and important for president trump of the five nations he's visiting in asia over a nearly two-week-long tour. partly because there are economic contentions between the two nations, and this work they're trying to do on north korea. secretary of state rex tillerson says there is no daylight between the two leaders when if comes to a commitment to denuclearize north korea. but we did not get many details about how the two leaders agreed to move forward on that beyond the president saying that both nations want to see the u.n. security council sanctions and resolutions put forward. now, at the same time, perhaps the most thorny part for president trump comes to trade and the economic relationship between the united states and china. for a long time he has been quite critical of china, but he sounded different in talking about their relationship here in beijing. >> both the united states and
prosperous future if we can achieve a level economic playing field. right now unfortunately, it is a very one-sided and unfair one. but -- but i don't blame china. i do blame past administrations for allowing this out of control trade deficit to take place and to grow. >> reporter: and the secretary of state said that the president's phrasing there may have been tongue in cheek about not blaming china. the economic imbalance is one of the mohs serious issues between the two nations. what is unclear is how much president xi will be working to try to help president trump resolve the north korean crisis as president trump has said it is beyond just these two nations to try to get something done. >> a lot to be sorted out. thank you. this morning, democrats and republicans are taking stock after a

president is an anchor around the gop. now, you may see going forward to the midterm elections democrats using this virginia template to try and tie republicans to the president with campaign ads that make some republican lawmakers nervous. >> i think that this was a referendum. i think it was a referendum on the division and the divisive rhetoric in the country now. i think it's important for republicans to self-reflect all the way starting from the top, all the way down. i do think it was a referendum on the national policies. >> was it a referendum on donald trump? >> i do believe so. >> reporter: talking to "the new york times," pennsylvania republican charlie dent says that if this isn't a wake-up call, i don't know what is. now, white house officials say that the president -- or advised republicans that the president did go after and help the party. he held a number of events and fund raisers to help the party. they say if republicans want to beat this wave coming forward to the midterm elections, they

home last week. the senator gave the medical update on his twitter wednesday, also thanking his supporters. the alleged attacker, 59-year-old rene boucher is set to appear in court today. he was charged with fourth degree assault but police say he could face more serious charges due to the extent of the senator's injuries. neighbors say boucher and paul have disagreed politically for years but boucher's attorney said the dispute had, quote, absolutely nothing to do with either politics or political agendas and was over a trivial matter. the senator may not return to work for several months. more than a month after hurricane maria hit puerto rico, u.s. officials plan to air lift nearly 3,000 people still stranded in shelters to florida and new york. fema announced they are working to establish host state agreements with florida and new york to accept hurricane survivors and provide temporary housing. the air lifts will be part of fema's transitional shelter assistance program. the agency is offering to pay for flights tow and from the mainland. meanwhile, the creator and or
