Dem Sen Cardin: New North Korea Sanctions ‘a Major Accomplishment’ for Trump

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” ranking Senate Foreign Relations Committee member Sen. Ben Cardin (D-MD) said the Trump administration getting new sanctions on North Korea imposed by the United Nations “was a major accomplishment.’

Cardin said, “That was a good move. That was a major accomplishment. I give our team a lot of credit for getting that done. They are pretty strong additional sanctions to be imposed against North Korea because of their continued testing of ballistic missiles. So that absolutely was a strong move forward. It was a great to see China and Russia join us on that.”

He added, “It now needs to be followed up with diplomacy where we get China and the United States working with the same strategy with North Korea to find a way that we can ease the tensions and get North Korea to change directions. So it was a good first step.”
