Congressman Brendan F. Boyle Statement on the North Korea Summit

June 11, 2018
Press Release

Congressman Brendan F. Boyle, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement in advance of President Trump’s summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un:
With decades of American foreign policy, the legitimization of Kim Jung Un, and global stability on the line, I hope that President Trump has prepared more extensively for the North Korea summit than he has thus far disclosed to the public.
President Trump heads into Singapore on the heels of reneging on the Iran nuclear deal, and creating chaos with instigating language at the the G-7 summit in Canada. We should be strengthening our relationships with our allies, not torching them.  We should be standing for American principles not sacrificing our identity and making everything negotiable.  We must not mistake “deal-making” for diplomatic success.  I hope we see a Donald Trump in Singapore that we have not yet seen, and a President who believes in a cohesive U.S. foreign policy.
