U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement on the meeting between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un:

"The world seems to be upside down when the White House is fighting with our strongest allies, such as Canada, yet acting like North Korea is our long-time friend. I do believe it is always better to try and resolve conflicts by talking rather than fighting. The meeting between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un could be a step forward; however, details are sparse and it remains unclear what exactly was accomplished at the meeting and what will be accomplished in further negotiations."
