Democratic Leaders Blast Trump for Halting Korea War Games

HeadlineJun 14, 2018

Trump’s comments came as leading Democrats blasted the president’s decision to suspend U.S. war games in the Korean Peninsula while the North takes steps toward denuclearization. This is Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer speaking from the Senate floor Wednesday.

Sen. Chuck Schumer: “President Trump agreed to freeze joint military exercises with South Korea. And he called them ’provocations’—right out of the North Korean propaganda playbook—without the knowledge of South Korea or our own military. I guarantee you, our military men and women were squirming when President Trump called our joint military exercises 'provocations.'”
