Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta) released the following statement after President Donald Trump spoke in front of the United Nations General Assembly:  

Today, President Trump spoke with clarity and resolve at the United Nations addressing the greatest threats America, and our allies, face.

The President said “the scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based.”  He put North Korea and Iran on notice, in front of the world, clearly articulating why the dangerous and provocative actions of each nation are unacceptable to America, and why they should be unacceptable to the U.N.

Those that continue to put partisanship ahead of country while our nation faces a nuclear madman in North Korea are misguided.  Like President John F. Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis – the last time America was on the precipice of nuclear war - President Trump is demonstrating leadership, patience and restraint during this very volatile time.
