Cardin Statement on North Korea

BALTIMORE — U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, Ranking Member, Senate Foreign Relations Committee, released the following statement on the President’s latest response to North Korea.

“President Trump’s comments were not helpful and once again show that he lacks the temperament and judgement to deal with the serious crisis the United States confronts.  We should not be engaging in the same kind of blustery and provocative statements as North Korea about nuclear war. No one should think that a conflict with North Korea will be a quick little glorious war, or be tempted by false hopes that North Korea’s nuclear program can be destroyed with a single antiseptic surgical strike.”
