US Rep. Tim Ryan criticizes Trump on canceling N. Korea summit


YOUNGSTOWN — U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel the U.S.-North Korea summit.

“The president’s handling of disarmament talks with North Korea leaves a lot to be desired,” said Ryan of Howland, D-13th. “Unfortunately, it looks to our allies and to our adversaries that the president doesn’t know what he’s doing.

"It seems the president is finding that empty bluster doesn’t work as well in diplomacy as it does on the campaign trail. The reality is, China and North Korea have his number. He’s an erratic president at a time when the United States desperately needs a steady hand. If he was truly interested in ushering in a more stable, peaceful world he’d get to work with our allies to engage in diplomacy all over the globe.”
