Sanders Statement on North Korea

BURLINGTON, Vt., Aug. 9 – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Wednesday after President Donald Trump warned he could unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea:

"President Trump’s bombastic rhetoric is not appropriate when we are dealing with the possibility of a nuclear war that could kill millions of people. North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons and missile capability is an enormously serious issue and we need serious people at the State Department dealing with it. Our job now is to work with China and our allies in the region and around the world on a comprehensive diplomatic strategy to address this problem."
