Senator Joe Donnelly, Congressman Jim Banks react to North Korea ICBM launch

North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile Tuesday and at least two Indiana lawmakers say it’s time for more pressure.

Exactly what the president means by “we’ll take care of it” is still a question mark, but one of the lawmakers calling for more diplomatic sanctions against the latest test from the Kim regime is Congressman Jim Banks.

Banks, who sits on the House Armed Service Committee, says he agrees with the assertion that North Korea is a state sponsor of terrorism. He also says more diplomatic pressure needs to be applied.

Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly, a ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee, reaffirmed his stance that we need “a clear, comprehensive strategy” on North Korea and that America needs to show the world that it’s serious about “confronting the threat from the Kim regime.”

He snuck in a provision in the recent defense bill that requires President Trump to release a strategy to Congress within 90 days of his signature.

Republican Senator Todd Young and Congresswoman Jackie Walorski have yet to make a public comment about the launch.

NY Joe seems to think maybe his coddling of dictators and totalitarian regimes during the last administration might bode ill for his reelection. I bet his good friends the Iranians are rubbing their hands together to get this new missile tech, paid for by his payoff to the terrorist regime.

Gotta love his sneak provision, one meant to trumpet to our enemies exactly what our intentions are. Even when NY Joe is trying to act tough he’s weakening the nation.

I find it really amusing to read that Senator Joe Donnelly reacts to North Korea ICBM launch. He will just say whatever he thinks is best at the moment and change it later if he needs to. Just another swamp rat in DC with no conviction on any subject that needs to get voted out of the swamp.
