Nancy Pelosi just released a statement attacking President Trump’s history making deal with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
And in the process roved beyond a doubt how much of an asset she will be for the GOP in the midterms.
The crazy thing about the media and Pelosi bashing Trump’s deal is they act as if the failures, their failures, of the past 40 years to contain this threat never happened.
It did and Thank God Trump tried a different way. Because his worked.
Nuclear nonproliferation is a pillar of America’s national security. We respect any serious and real diplomatic efforts to achieve that goal on the Korean peninsula. Apparently, the President just handed Kim Jong-un concessions in exchange for vague promises that do not approach a clear and comprehensive pathway to denuclearization and non-proliferation.
In his haste to reach an agreement, President Trump elevated North Korea to the level of the United States while preserving the regime’s status quo. The millions of families currently living in fear of nuclear weapons in the region deserve strong and smart leadership built-in diplomacy and engagement with our regional partners and allies.
The president’s marginalization of the State Department and his habitual disparaging of our allies as demonstrated at the G7 Forum hinders a lasting, stable pathway to peace.
Sorry, Nancy. The only concession Trump made was to suspend worthless war games that we have been practicing for 40 years.
“We will be stopping the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money, unless and until we see the future negotiation is not going along like it should. But we’ll be saving a tremendous amount of money, plus I think it’s very provocative,” Trump said.
Trump’s right and Pelosi knows it which is why her argument is so weak.
