U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Democratic presidential candidate, criticized President Trump's approach with North Korea saying on CBS' "Face the Nation" that diplomacy 'isn't like going over and talking to your dictator next door and bringing them a hot dish over the fence.'
U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar is criticizing President Trump's latest overture to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying their meeting lacked substance.
Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation,' Klobuchar noted North Korea launched missiles into the sea just last month, showing the need for the United States to go into such talks armed with a clear mission and clear goals.
Diplomacy "isn't like going over and talking to your dictator next door and bringing them a hot dish over the fence," she said.
Business Insider reports that Sen. Amy Klobuchar has withdrawn from the running to be former Vice President Joe Biden's vice president. On Thursday, she spoke to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell. She said Biden should choose a woman of color as his running mate instead. "This is a historic moment.I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket." Klobuchar's decision comes after weeks of protests sparked by the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
