Statement From Rick Saccone On North Korea Announcement
CANONSBURG-- Last night’s historic announcement revealed that the Trump administration’s strong leadership and pressure led to the first talks between a sitting U.S. President and a North Korean leader. This development is a major step in the right direction to attaining a denuclearized Korean peninsula.
PA-18 Republican Congressional Candidate Rick Saccone applauded the announcement. Saccone worked as a counter-intelligence officer in South Korea before serving for a year as the only American living in North Korea at the time. He’s the only candidate in the race experienced in negotiating with the North Koreans.
“President Trump’s strategic efforts to bring the North Koreans to the negotiating table have worked. Agreeing to suspend ballistic missile testing without any American concessions is a testament to the immense pressure the United States has placed on the rogue regime. I look forward to working with the president and Republicans in Congress to ensure we continue to be the leader on the world stage.”
