Congressman Joe Wilson's Statement on U.S.-North Korea Summit

West Columbia, S.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement after the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. 

“While this summit is only the first step in a long and arduous process towards complete denuclearization, we as Americans can be proud of President Donald Trump for doing the right thing for American families, the Korean Peninsula, and the world. I am hopeful, as one of only two Members of Congress who have visited Pyongyang, that Kim Jong-un and his diplomats will follow through on their commitments, but until then we must maintain tough sanctions against North Korea and encourage the international community to do the same.”
