    Why the head scratching?

    Why did Trump call the Senate to the White House for a "supposedly" important briefing when it could have been given at the Senate building without the need for the elaborate preparation as was given?

    My guess is that it was Trump's juvenile attempt to show the Senate and public just who was "boss" and that he was the one who gave the orders.

    Or, maybe, just maybe, to tell all the members of the Senate what's going on with NK and what our possible options are.

    You know, to keep them informed...

    For the POTUS to speak in the Capital Chambers he must be invited by both houses of Congress, I guess he could have requested it and then wait for a vote and a invitation.

    Or he could invite the congress to the White House avoid the delays in addressing congress.

    maybe you need to understand the protocol before you make a very uninformed comment.

    There again is that lack of common sense. Which is easier? One man to go to the Senate floor or 100 senators get on the bus to go to the White House. It was a publicity stunt that produced nothing.hey at least they didn't have to go to Florida

    Do you think that it would have been the Republican controlled House, or the Republican controlled Senate that would have refused to allow the President to speak?
