Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the below statement following President Donald J. Trump’s speech in Seoul, South Korea.

Congressman McCaul: “President Trump’s speech in Seoul articulated a clear foreign policy vision based on ‘peace through strength,’ and reclaimed the mantle of leadership on the world stage for the United States. America will never seek conflict with another nation, but we will always remain true to our allies and defend our commitments to liberty and security for the safety of our homeland. 

“The President has now provided the regime in Pyongyang with a historic opportunity to end its aggression by stopping the development of ballistic missiles and through a complete and permanent denuclearization.  It is now up to Kim Jong Un to choose peace over confrontation.”
