Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after President Trump’s summit with North Korea in Singapore.
“Today’s summit in Singapore is tangible evidence that President Trump is achieving unprecedented progress with his peace-seeking efforts. Under President Trump’s leadership, this year the world witnessed Kim Jong Un cross the DMZ and embrace President Moon Jae In – an act that would have been inconceivable mere months ago. North Korea’s participation in today’s summit is an encouraging step in the right direction, and I am grateful for President Trump and Secretary Pompeo’s leadership in this process.”
