Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, joined the Dom Giordano Program on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT to discuss the historic meeting between President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

“It was a historic summit this weekend and the world watched. The American people watched President Donald Trump achieve a successful summit what he called a ‘mission of peace.’ He walked away with a commitment from the leader of North Korea for the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. In the midst of all that, the President made it clear that our sanctions will remain in place but it was peace through strength that brought us here. Now we move to trust but verify and I can assure you that this President is going forward with strength but we also go forward with hope. With hope that we are now on a pass toward peace, vigorous negotiations are underway but I couldn’t be more proud to serve with a President that embraces our role as leader of the free world.

The Vice President was proud to tell Giordano of one additional detail that was a part of the agreement between the two leaders.

“There was one other aspect of that agreement that hasn’t gotten much notice, but I believe your listeners would be encouraged to know as I am. I am actually the son of a combat veteran of the Korean War. In the agreement that was signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un, President Trump secured a commitment for the recovery and return of more than 5,000 remains of American serviceman that fell in the Korean War. Our boys are coming home, Dom and I think every American can be proud.”
