Sanders Statement on Trump-Kim Summit

WASHINGTON, June 12 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Tuesday following President Trump and Kim Jong Un's meeting in Singapore:

"While very light on substance, the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore represents a positive step in de-escalating tensions between our countries, addressing the threat of North Korea’s nuclear weapons, and moving toward a more peaceful future. Congress has an important role to play in making sure this is a meaningful and serious process and not just a series of photo ops."
