Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Trump's decision to withdraw from the upcoming summit with North Korea:

"North Korea has a long history of demanding concessions merely to negotiate. While past administrations of both parties have fallen for this ruse, I commend the president for seeing through Kim Jong Un's fraud. As I have long said, our maximum-pressure campaign on North Korea must continue."
