Senator David Perdue Comments On Expanded Sanctions Against North Korea

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on President Trump’s bold action to impose additional sanctions against North Korea:

“President Trump was very clear to world leaders at the United Nations that he would do whatever necessary to reign in the deranged regime of Kim Jong-un. It didn’t take long for President Trump to follow through and take strong action to hold North Korea accountable for its dangerous behavior. Today, a loud message has been sent to financial institutions around the world: choose between doing business with the U.S., or supporting a rogue regime.”
