Dem Congresswoman: Trump Should Engage Directly With Kim Jong Un To Find a Peaceful Resolution

What we need is a 'direct conversation' with Kim Jong Un Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says.
That's been tried for the last 25 years.

Tulsi Gabbard appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper to talk about the threat from North Korea.

Take a listen to what she says in this video. Gabbard claims that United States history of interventionist policies brought us to where we are now. A place where North Korea was forced to build nuclear weapons to protect itself from the U.S. Now what we need from Trump is some good old fashioned diplomacy with North Korea. This is crazy.

Gabbard: " points to the fact that we are not recognizing why North Korea's built this nuclear weapons program in the first place: To protect themselves from the threat of the United States of toppling their regimes."

"If we understand that our history of interventionist regime change policies have brought North Korea to this place of holding onto nuclear weapons as the only deterrent against regime change, then we can begin to understand how important it is to have this direct conversation that could ultimately result in saving so many lives."
