Menendez Worries Trump Is ‘Dumbing Down Diplomacy’

Monday on CNN’s The Situation Room, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said he worries that President Trump will opt for “made-for-TV moments” at the expense of diplomacy with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“The president walked away from the first summit without even a definition of what the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is,” Menendez said. “So we’re going to a second summit in which there isn’t an agreement.

“I worry that the president wants made-for-TV moments. I worry that he’s dumbing down diplomacy at the end of the day and I am worried that for the sake of declaring a victory, he will give too much,” he added.
