Sen. Hassan Urges Continued Partnership with China on North Korea

Jul 5, 2017

New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan is urging a stronger diplomatic response to North Korea’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday.

Speaking at an event in Newport Wednesday, Sen. Hassan said she’s worried about President Trump's ability to handle the crisis. "I am very concerned that the President seems to think that diplomacy is something you can do via Twitter," she said. 

Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, “So much for China working with us – but we had to give it a try!”  

But Sen. Hassan said it's important that the U.S. continue working with China as a partner to reign in North Korea.
