Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the president's decision to designate North Korea as an official state sponsor of terrorism:

"I strongly support the president's decision. There's no doubt the Kim regime thrives off spreading mayhem around the globe, and today's decision is another step in the Administration's effort to bring the greatest pressure to bear on the Kim regime. Now the rest of the world should follow our lead, and fully isolate the North Korean regime. Better to address this threat now than to let it grow any further."
