(Worthy News) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said North Korean denuclearization is the “top national security priority,” but the Trump administration is also focused on “appropriate countermeasures” to anticipated Russian meddling in the 2018 midterms, knuckling down against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s power grab in Caracas and much, much more.

The secretary said the administration is holding to its plan for a major summit with Kim Jong-un on June 12, but will “walk away” if the North Korean leader is not serious about denuclearization.

“A bad deal is not an option,” Mr. Pompeo said. “The American people are counting on us to get this right. If the right deal is not on the table, we will respectfully walk away.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
