Trump’s rhetoric on North Korea gets more dangerous with every tweet. His words have shown he can’t be trusted to responsibly handle the potential crisis and North Korea’s unstable dictator.
North Korea has now tested its sixth and most powerful hydrogen bomb, prompting an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council. Given the extremely volatile nature of the situation, and that North Korea has intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of hitting major U.S. cities, we need measured leadership that leverages every diplomatic tool to de-escalate tensions—not reckless tweets that fuel the flames.

Script: Hello! My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [ADDRESS]. Donald Trump has frighteningly few checks on his authority to launch a nuclear weapon. That’s why Senator Markey and Congressman Lieu have introduced bipartisan legislation that would make explicit that the President cannot launch a nuclear first strike without a declaration of war by Congress. Will you help constrain Trump’s authority to use nuclear weapons by co-sponsoring the bipartisan “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act”? (H.R. 669 in the House and S. 200 in the Senate)
