captioning funded by cbs it's tuesday, april 25th, 2017. this is the "cbs morning news." breaking overnight. north korea flexes its military muscle once again, this time a massive artillery firing marked the army's anniversary. the next move for the united states and its asian allies. staring down a government shutdown as his 100th day in office approaches. one of the president's biggest campaign promises hits a wall. and for the first time in 16 years, a double execution in the u.s. overnight, arkansas carried out the killing of two inmates as
4:01 am
expiring drug deadline. good morning from the studio 57 newsroom here at cbs news headquarters in new york. good to be with you. i'm anne-marie green. we begin on the korean peninsula, where overnight, north korea held a large-scale artillery drill. now, the military exercise on north korea's east coast adds to the rising tension as the trump administration considers its next move. yesterday, north korea's defense minister warned the situation is so tense, nuclear war may break out. china is north korea's key ally, and adriana diaz is in beijing. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there is a coordinated effort to make sure that this doesn't escalate further than where we are right now. and in the middle of it all is china. as you mentioned, china's north korea's only major ally, its only trading partner, really, north korea's lifeline. and china has one
4:02 am
that is for everyone to restrain themselves, to try to de-escalate the situation. and they're trying to deliver that message at all levels. chinese president xi jinping spoke to president trump over the weekend. today, china's nationalistic tabloid, a state media outlet, tried to warn north korea from a nuclear test. they said the nuclear test would be the point of no return. now, north korea's already tested a nuclear weapon five times, or conducted five nuclear tests, but they are saying a sixth would be catastrophic because it could just lead to the situation spinning out of control. the paper also warned all parties to exercise restraint and said that the "game of chicken" between washington and pyongyang is at a breaking point. >> well, adriana, we know that north korea likes to schedule provocative acts on anniversaries or near anniversaries. what's going on today? >> reporter: well, today is the 85th anniversary of north
4:03 am
so, that's one of the reasons why this artillery drill is being conducted today in particular. another reason is because north korea's really feeling the pressure from all sides geographically. the u.s. is sending military assets to the area, to the waters off the korean peninsula. there is a navy strike group that is going to be joined by japanese ships and south korean ships. at the same time, the u.s. and south korea are also conducting a joint naval exercise off of the other coast of the korean peninsula, so here, today, with today's drills in north korea, north korea's trying to show that it will not stand down, it will not be intimidated by the show of force by other countries in the region and by the u.s. >> you know, we have a new cbs news poll on the nuclear threat, and it showed that more than half of americans are uneasy with the president's ability to handle the situation. what is president trump's strategy to rein
4:04 am
>> reporter: well, president trump is certainly ramping up his rhetoric. he is talking tough on north korea, and he's been discussing north korea regularly, specifically in the past few weeks. he has repeatedly said that all options are on the table. that includes military action. he and members of his administration have also said that the era of strategic patience is over. that's really a leftover policy from the obama administration where the u.s. is really hanging back and waiting to see if it can wait out north korea after just applying more pressure through sanctions. so, president trump has not ruled out military action. he is being more aggressive, sending military assets, naval ships, to the region to try to intimidate north korea. but in terms of an actual new policy, what we really are seeing right now is somewhat of the old policy. president trump has also called for more sanctions, more pressure on north korea, which is whae
4:05 am
but what he's doing differently is ramping up the rhetoric and also moving more military assets to the region, not being afraid to show a display of force. >> adriana diaz in beijing, thank you so much, adriana. well, in washington, negotiations are under way to try and prevent the government from shutting down at midnight friday, and it appears president trump has backed away from demanding that funding for a border wall be included in the spending legislation. hannah daniels is here in new york with the details. hannah, good morning. >> good morning, anne-marie. the clock is ticking on congress to pass a federal spending bill by the end of the week. the white house remains confident a government shutdown won't happen. >> we will build the wall 100%. >> reporter: it's one of the core campaign promises that president trump ran on, but the reality of the budget process is making it a hard one to keep. >> how high will it be? how much will it cost? >> reporter: the
4:06 am
demanded congress include funding for the mexican border wall in the spending bill. that's due by midnight on friday. but amid backlash from democrats and some republicans, senior administration officials tell cbs news the white house is prepared to put funding for the wall on hold until fiscal 2018 negotiations. they say mr. trump now plans to pivot to a message of general satisfaction on border security. >> money for our military and our border security and wall, those are the president's priorities with respect to the cr and keeping the government open. >> reporter: vice president pence cut his trip to hawaii short to be part of the negotiations. >> i'm headed back to capitol hill. there's a spending bill that's being considered as we speak. >> reporter: democrats have said they would be comfortable with some additional funding for border security and surveillance. if no deal is reached, lawmakers are likely to pass a temporary resolution that would fund the government for at least another week. and president trump is expected to sign yet another executive or
