President Donald Trump says he doesn’t need the advice of Democrats when it comes to North Korea, tweeting early Friday that they “did NOTHING” on Pyongyang’s nuclear program during the Obama administration.
Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters this week that he’s concerned the president’s desire for a deal could saddle the U.S. and its allies with unfavorable terms. Democrats have written a letter to Trump outlining what they say should be conditions for the planned summit next week.
Trump tweets that Schumer and other Democrats were unable to achieve such a meeting with the North Korean leader. He writes: “Schumer failed with North Korea and Iran, we don’t need his advice!”
