Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after North Korea’s most recent missile launch:

As the Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness, North Korea's second missile launch over Japan in one month is a clear act of defiance of the sanctions imposed on them. This poses a direct and unacceptable threat to the United States and our allies Japan and South Korea.

The United States must stand as a leader with our allied nations and do whatever is necessary to keep our families safe. I have full faith in President Trump and his military advisors that they will take whatever actions necessary - be they trade, military, or diplomatic - in order to combat this tyrannical regime.
