Not only is the denuclearization summit meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “a step forward” – it could prove to be a “huge” one, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Tuesday.

In an exclusive interview with at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., Sen. Paul shared his assessment of Trump’s meeting with the North Korean leader: “At their summit in Singapore, President Trump and Kim Jong-Un signed a joint statement in which Kim said North Korea was committed ‘to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.’ Is this a step forward?”

Sen. Paul: “Well, it’s obviously a step forward to have the dialogue, and if that comes true it’s a huge step forward.”
