It’s rare that a President calls all 100 members of the Senate to the White House for special briefing on any issue, but that’s exactly what President Trump did last night. The topic of the special briefing is North Korea and will probably discuss the growing tensions and the additional American taken captive by the North Korean government. Hopefully, the meeting is not to talk them into a declaration of war, but we’ll find out soon.
The entire U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the upcoming briefing, for all 100 senators, on Monday.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers.
It is rare for the entire Senate to be invited to such a briefing.
For the past 8 years, the Obama administration did little to dissuade aggressive nations like North Korea and Iran. However, those days are over and President Donald Trump is not going to stand by and allow North Korea to attack any of our allies in the region nor will he tolerate them taken many more Americans hostage. Wouldn’t like to be a fly on the wall in this briefing? I sure would.
