Hawaii rep: False alarm shows need for Trump to talk with North Korea

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Sunday highlighted the need for President Trump to hold talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after a false alarm about a missile attack sent the islands into a state of panic over the weekend.

“I’ve been calling on President Trump to directly negotiate with North Korea, to sit across the table from Kim Jong Un, work out the differences so that we can build a pathway towards denuclearization, to remove this threat,” Gabbard told host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Her remarks come after an erroneous alert, sent to over a million cellphones across the state, directed people to seek shelter from an incoming ballistic missile threat.

Gabbard stressed that this fear of an attack underscores the need for the two world leaders to meet and address the heightened tensions.
