Sen. Murphy: ‘I’m Very Worried’ Trump’s NoKo Summit Will ‘Go Badly’, Lead to Military Action
Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) does not share Donald Trump‘s optimism that negotiations with North Korea will end well.
Murphy gave an interview to Morning Joe on Wednesday, where he was asked about the president’s tweet confirming that Mike Pompeo has spoken to Kim Jong Un about their proposed summit. When asked if he seriously thinks North Korean denuclearization is an actual possibility, Murphy said that even though he’s glad to hear about the diplomatic preparations, he’s not so sure anything good will come out of it.
Murphy was doubly concerned since Trump is surrounded by hawkish advisers who he thinks will recommend military action if talks go south.
“I’m very worried that this summit going to go badly and then surrounded by hawks like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, the president is going to be convinced that diplomacy has failed and the only option left is military action.”
