Engel: ‘I’m More Confused Now Than When I First Heard About’ Trump’s N. Korea Meeting
Congressman Elliot Engel told CNN’s Erin Burnett Friday that he is “confused” over the Trump administration’s announcement of POTUS’ meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
“Your guess is as good as mine,” Engel, the ranking member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee told Burnett when she asked if the meeting was actually going to happen. “I think I’m more confused now than when I first heard about it a few hours ago.”
“Look, I always think that talking is better than not talking. I know it’s something that the North Koreans have wanted for a long time, and I know it’s regarded as a big concession for the president to talk, but if we can make head way, why not?”
