Press Release

San Antonio, TX – Today, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20), a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the following statement regarding President Donald Trump’s comments on North Korea: 

“We have twice seen the devastating consequences nuclear weapons can inflict on humanity. Every effort should be made to prevent that kind of destruction and suffering. This is not a playground. President Trump should not be matching reckless comments for reckless comments with Kim Jong Un.  
 
“The United States needs to be a steady, reliable partner to our allies in the face of North Korea’s destabilizing provocations. President Trump must rise to this responsibility and stop issuing dangerous, inflammatory statements.”
