CIA Director Mike Pompeo appeared on "Fox News Sunday" to discuss North Korean nuclear development, which he said is proceeding at an "ever-alarming rate".
White House officials have insisted the investigation was not created to apply additional pressure on China as it relates to North Korea despite the president's previous remarks that he would be more amenable on trade if China stopped Pyongyang's nuclear program.
