Bernie Sanders Praises Trump-Kim Summit: Overall ‘A Positive Step’

The historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un has been met with cautious optimism and outright skepticism by members of Congress.

Lindsey Graham came down on the side of cautious optimism today, while Bob Corker was a little more skeptical, saying “it is difficult to determine what of concrete nature has occurred.”

Meanwhile, Democrats like Nancy Pelosi have been more critical.

Bernie Sanders said in a statement the meeting was “light on substance,” but still an encouraging step:

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.
