Rep. Bass Warns Administration Against Dangerous North Korea Rhetoric

August 11, 2017
Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement after joining more than 60 colleagues in sending a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson responding to President Trump’s continually escalating threats to North Korea.

“It is the duty of the President to keep our country safe. Just this week, the Trump administration has done the opposite, putting out three different statements ranging from encouraging sound sleep to an improvised remark pledging fire and fury against a country with nuclear weapons. Far from quelling threats abroad, these threats have also created unrest domestically. My offices have received hundreds of calls and letters from concerned constituents as our country barrels towards war. This is no way to conduct foreign policy and it must stop.”
