MICK RICH CAMPAIGN STATEMENT ON HISTORIC SUMMIT WITH NORTH KOREA

Albuquerque, NM – The Mick Rich for U.S. Senate campaign issued the following statement on the President’s historic summit with North Korea.

“The President’s meeting with North Korea is a historic opportunity to strive for peace and reduce the threat of nuclear weapons,” campaign spokesman Mike Lonergan said. “It’s a shame that Martin Heinrich is more interested in petty political jabs on Twitter than making Americans and our allies safer at home and around the world.”

Background:

“President Trump just gave a brutal North Korean dictator the international legitimacy he has always craved and got nothing in return. Weak.,” (Senator Martin Heinrich Twitter Post, 6/12/18)

Even former Democrat Governor Bill Richardson said that meeting with North Korea was “…worth the risk.” (Washington Times, History is made as Trump and Kim meet, but will they produce something historic?, 6/12/18)
