    Trump’s statements on Twitter have been dividing the Republican party since the very day he took the oath of office. While many were vocal with their criticism of Trump’s online behavior, others expressed discontent in the sense that “he did nothing for us.”

    Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong-un and the “historic” signing of his deal with North Korea did not go well with most of the pro-war Republican leaders who argue that the North Korean dictator might be bluffing, though a few of Trump’s loyalists are continuing to defend him no matter what. This has caused another rift among major Republican leaders with most of them publicly speaking against their president’s decision.

    Sen. Cory Garder said that Vice President Mike Pence tweeted that military exercises would continue during a meeting with senators though Pence’s Press Secretary Alyssa Farah rubbished his statement.

    Cory tried to justify himself later though we are not sure who is right.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wasn’t happy with Trump’s decision as he called for the Congress to intervene.

    He said:

    “If the president reaches a significant agreement with North Korea, I hope it takes the form of a treaty. Which route that the administration takes will be up to them but I do believe it will need to come to Congress in some form.”

    Republican Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn also expressed his disagreement:

    “I think the lesson is that if you try to do things unilaterally or just with the executive branch, that they don’t last long.”

    Later he asked for a vote in the Congress too.

    Republican Senator Ron Johnson added:

    “The administration ought to go into this thing saying we’ve got to create a treaty.”

    Sen. Jerry Moran said Trump’s appreciation of Kim “isn’t, certainly, the way I would describe a dictator, despot, tyrant.”

    Marco Rubio used harsh words to describe the North Korean dictator as he tweeted:

    Joni Ernst, the Republican Senator from Iowa also commented that the North Korea deal needs to be “more treaty-based.”

    Virginia Sen. Mark Warner called the agreement with Kim Jong-un a bad deal. “North Korea, a winner. The West and America? It’s too early to tell.”
