Senator David Perdue Comments On White House North Korea Briefing

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on the White House North Korea briefing:

“North Korea’s reckless belligerence threatens our allies in the region and could possibly threaten the homeland in the future. Today’s briefing signals President Trump’s willingness to engage and inform both Republicans and Democrats in Congress of the increasing risk posed by North Korea. A strong U.S. partnership with our allies in the region is essential to reining in this rogue nation and sending the message that this threatening behavior will not be tolerated.”
