Dem Sen Murphy: ‘Very Worried’ Trump-Kim Summit Goes ‘Very Badly’ and Trump Thinks Military Action Is Only Option

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said that he is “very worried” that a summit between Kim Jong-un and President Trump will “go very badly,” and the president will be convinced that a military option is the only remaining option.

Murphy said that he is “glad” that CIA Director Mike Pompeo met with Kim as preparation for a Kim-Trump summit, but that such a meeting probably should have been handled by the State Department and not the CIA.

He further stated, “I’m very worried that this summit is going to go very badly, and then, surrounded by hawks like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, the president is going to be convinced that diplomacy has failed and the only option left is a military action.”
