Ben Cardin: Trump’s Language ‘Certainly Escalated the Problems’ with North Korea
CARDIN: "Well, I think the president’s language certainly has escalated the problems. We know North Korea is dangerous. We know that. We know they’ve been developing weapons for a long time. We know that they’re continuing along that path. That’s all given. But what the president has done is isolate the United States from having the type of cooperation from China and Russia that I think is absolutely essential to change the equation in North Korea. So, the president’s language here saying, well, we’ll see about dropping bombs, what our military options are, I don’t think helps us in trying to find a non-military solution."
