( -- At the Capitol on Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized the denuclearization summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, saying that if you want “to negotiate with Trump, it pays to have a nuclear bomb in your pocket.”

“The denuclearization of the [Korean] peninsula has been one of the priorities that was spelled out by all of us, but including the secretary of state in advance of the meetings,” said Pelosi.

“The denuclearization of that [peninsula] has certainly not happened nor is there any prospect that it will,” she said.

Pelosi also claimed that Communist North Korea has been selling missiles to other countries. Pelosi visited North Korea several years ago to discuss public policy with officials there.

When asked about selling missiles, according to Pelosi, the North Koreans said, “we don’t sell them for any reason but for money, you want to buy them, we’ll sell them to you.”

Pelosi added that “stopping the spread of weapons of mass destruction is a pillar of our national security.”

Pelosi also criticized the significance of the end of joint military exercises by the United States and South Korea, saying, “You don’t just say we’re no longer going to do exercises with the South because we no longer see a threat in the North.”

President Trump and dictator Kim Jong-Un signed a four-point agreement on Tuesday that included North Korea’s commitment “to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”

In addition, the agreement calls for North Korea to “commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.” According to the VFW, the remains of an estimated 5,300 American soldiers are in North Korea.
