Rep. Joe Wilson’s Statement on Increased Sanctions on North Korea

West Columbia, SC- Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) release the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s North Korea sanctions announcement today. 

“I am grateful that President Donald Trump is continuing to take the North Korean regime and its threats seriously. Today’s announcement of the largest sanctions package against North Korea to date shows America will not sit by and allow a rogue regime to threaten our families or democracy around the globe. These sanctions effectively target the regime and any other individuals and international corporate entities who do business with North Korea.

This is what a successful foreign policy of peace through strength looks like. I appreciate the strong leadership of President Trump and his Administration, with the Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, all of whom understand that we must slow the rapid pace of North Korea’s nuclear weapons development.”
