Sixty-two House Democrats wrote a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson regarding North Korea, but not to condemn the communist nation's actions. They were triggered by President Donald Trump's response to North Korea's reported development of nuclear warheads capable of reaching the United States.
The letter starts:
“We write to express our profound concern over the statements made by President Trump that dramatically increased tensions with North Korea and raised the specter of nuclear war.”
They called Trump’s “fire and fury” speech “irresponsible and dangerous,” potentially providing a “boon” to North Korean propaganda. They asked Tillerson to urge the president to speak and act “with the utmost caution and restraint.”
Chris Salcedo called their actions as a party irresponsible on today’s “Chris Salcedo Show,” reminding letter-organizer Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) that Democrats “removed restrictions from North Korea, and they leap-frogged in technology.”
Chris was referring to then-president Bill Clinton’s 1994 deal with North Korea that was meant to prevent nuclear proliferation. He wondered how the left has the temerity to call Trump irresponsible when they helped create the situation -- and then choose to condemn the president rather than the nation that is threatening the United States with war.
