He released this statement on Tuesday morning regarding the summit with Kim Jong Un: “The Trump Administration, under Congressional direction, deserves praise for abandoning the failed policy of strategic patience and pursuing a maximum pressure campaign that has resulted in unprecedented sanctions against this heinous regime. Today’s summit must be followed by multiple meetings to test North Korea’s promises of denuclearization, which they have made in the past and then repeatedly violated. Until such time as North Korea takes concrete steps to denuclearize, our policy should be to continue the maximum pressure campaign. The complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, as enshrined in US law and multiple United Nations Security Council Resolutions, must be the only goal of US engagement with North Korea.”

    Deport Gardner, the Anti-President, and all other leaders of the Fascist (Republican) and Collaborationist (Democratic) Parties now! These deadly enemies of the American People and Constitution pose a clear and direct threat to our lives and liberties. Patriots act.
