Addressing the Growing Threat from
North Korea
It is no secret that North Korea has been working to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Recently, North Korea successfully tested its fifth nuclear weapon, and potentially it’s most powerful. In addition to the nuclear threat, North Korea has demonstrated a record of human rights abuses on its own people and, in some cases, even members of the government who disagree with Kim Jong-Un. There have also been cases of visiting tourists being imprisoned by the North Korean government.

Hostile behavior like this from North Korea is a direct threat to South Korea, Japan and our other allies in the region. If we allow North Korea to advance their technology and continue their human rights abuses, the threat will expand, and possibly reach our shores.

That is why I believe we need to develop a complete strategy to address our national security threats. This strategy should include building up our military, while also utilizing diplomatic and economic influence. America also needs to engage our allies to help hold tyrannical regimes accountable for their actions. Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans have released the “Better Way” plan to improve our national security, which includes some of these ideas to better address the threats we face. Read more about our strategy to keep our country safe and defend freedom at better.gop.

Please be assured that I remain committed to the safety and security of our country. It is my honor to serve you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
