Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) was asked by guest host Jim Acosta to weigh in on Trump’s comments at last night’s campaign rally in which the president mentioned that Kim was thinking about denuclearizing and America should be nice to Kim while he prepares to meet the reclusive leader.“So, again, it’s just incredibly important to keep — I would — is ratchet up the sanctions against North Korea until they actually do in a verifiable fashion to denuclearize,” Johnson said.
“Let’s hope not,” the Wisconsin lawmaker responded. “You have that history. Let’s not be snookered again. Let’s not be Charlie Brown to North Korea’s Lucy. We’ve seen this movie before that’s why we’ve called on President Trump to make sure we maintain the maximum pressure campaign.”
