Maloney has mixed reaction to Trump-Kim summit

WASHINGTON – The meeting between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in Singapore was “a step in the right direction,” Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D, NY-18) said on Tuesday.

But, Maloney has “some concerns about suspending our defensive exercises with our ally, South Korea, because we got a nice photo op and a promise from Kim.”

Maloney said any final deal should be “a real, enforceable, agreement that holds North Korea to their word without giving away the farm.”

The congressman said he will “believe it when I see it – but the president does deserve credit for backing off his inflammatory rhetoric and initiative this meeting. Diplomacy is rarely a bad thing.”
