Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders publicly praised President Trump’s Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday, saying the meeting was a “positive step” towards “de-escalating” tensions in the region.
The socialist Senator broke with Democrats after Pelosi slammed Trump’s high-stakes summit as “hasty,” adding Trump’s negotiation will help minimize the risk of nuclear war across the globe.
“While very light on substance, Trump and Kim Jong Un’s meeting is a positive step in de-escalating tensions and addressing the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Congress has a key role to play in making sure this is a meaningful process, not just a series of photo ops,” tweeted Sanders.
The Senator’s comments come on the heels of Trump’s announcement that the US will halt all future war games with the South Korean military; saying the drills are too costly and too “provocative” at this sensitive time.
