Murphy Blasts Trump-Kim Summit: “We Gave Up Military Exercises … for NOTHING”

The junior senator took to Twitter on Tuesday with a thread about Trump's summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) continued his criticism of the Trump-Kim summit on Twitter on Tuesday, releasing a four-tweet thread arguing Trump gave up U.S.-South Korea military exercises “for NOTHING.”

Reclaim Connecticut noted Tuesday that Murphy is a relatively-new hawk on the North Korea issue, stepping up his discussion of North Korea’s human rights abuses since Trump opened up diplomatic relations with the Kim regime.

Trump became the first U.S. president to meet with a North Korean leader earlier this week, but Murphy seems none too pleased about the meeting. He is considered a potential challenger to Trump in 2020.
