1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"(Reporter question) Nancy Pelosi says you're risking a new arms race with Russia. What's your response?
Honestly I don't think she has a clue. I really don't. I don't think Nancy has a clue. And I see that when she says wolves are immoral. She doesn't have, she doesn't know and I wish she did because she's hurting this country so badly. It's all rhetorical not delivered well but it's all rhetorical. She's hurting our country very very badly. Even with statements like that.

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"(Reporter question) Pulling out of the IMF is this as much about the from the Western Pacific from China. Is it the emerging threat from China...?
No the reason is, the reason is, first of all you have to add countries obviously, it's old. But very importantly one side has not been adhering to it. We have, but one side has it. So unless they're going to adhere, we shouldn't be the only one. I hope that we're able to get everybody in a very big and beautiful room and do a new treaty that would be much better. But, because certainly I would like to see that. But you have to have everybody adhere to it and you have a certain side that almost pretends it doesn't exist, pretty much pretends it doesn't exist. So unless we're going to have something that we all agree to, we can't be put at the disadvantage of going by a treaty, limiting what we do when somebody else doesn't go by that treaty. Ok? Thank you."
President Donald Trump blamed Russia Friday for the U.S. pullout of a landmark nuclear arms treaty, arguing that it should not be constrained by a deal Moscow is violating.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said "one side has not been adhering" to the deal, and "unless they're going to adhere," the U.S. should not be the only signatory committed to it.
The administration announced Friday it is withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty that has been a centerpiece of superpower arms control since the Cold War.
Some analysts worry the move could fuel a new arms race.
The Trump decision reflects his administration's view that this arms treaty and perhaps others are unacceptable obstacles to more forcefully confronting Russia and China in what Pentagon officials call a great power competition.
