Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim-Jong Un in Singapore:
"I applaud President Trump and those on his team working tirelessly to address the real and growing North Korean nuclear threat. The strategy used by previous administrations, both Republican and Democratic, clearly did not work, and it was time for a new approach. I'm hopeful that real progress was made in Singapore -- the past does not have to dictate the future. And, I am heartened to see that President Trump will be keeping the strict sanctions in place on North Korea until the actions of Kim Jong-Un match his words."
