Trump’s rhetoric on North Korea gets more dangerous with every tweet. His words have shown he can’t be trusted to responsibly handle the potential crisis and North Korea’s unstable dictator. Given the extremely volatile nature of the situation, and that North Korea has intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting major U.S. cities, we need measured leadership that leverages every diplomatic tool to de-escalate tensions—not reckless tweets that fuel the flames. Ask your Members of Congress to do everything they can to stop Trump from leading us into nuclear war.
SAMPLE TOWN HALL QUESTIONS:
- Donald Trump has frighteningly few checks on his authority to launch a nuclear weapon. That’s why Senator Markey and Congressman Lieu have introduced bipartisan legislation that would make explicit that the President cannot launch a nuclear first strike without a declaration of war by Congress. Will you help constrain Trump’s authority to use nuclear weapons by co-sponsoring the bipartisan “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act”? (H.R. 669 in the House and S. 200 in the Senate)
- We can avoid a catastrophic nuclear showdown through tough and persistent diplomacy. The problem is that our lead agency for diplomacy, the State Department, remains paralyzed by a lack of senior level appointments. Eight months into his term, President Trump has failed to fill hundreds of top level positions at State including: Ambassador to South Korea, Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security, and the list goes on and on. Will you oppose any spending bill that has damaging cuts to the State Department’s budget, further hobbling our international diplomacy efforts? Will you demand Trump nominate qualified, career individuals to serve in these critical posts?
- Trump’s dangerous rhetoric is fanning the flames with North Korea. His words could provoke the unstable Kim Jong Un and further escalate tensions when our top priority should be de-escalation and diplomacy. Will you denounce Trump’s dangerous rhetoric that puts our national security at risk? Will you demand he come to Congress first before engaging in any sort of military operation against North Korea?
