Congressman Mike Rogers, R-Saks, accused the “liberal media elite” of glamorizing the sister of North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, Kim Yo Jong, after her attendance at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

“What the liberal media elite like CNN and The New York Times has done is sickening to me,” Rogers said.  “Her brother Kim Jong-un is a murderer and his regime in its brutality forces its people to live a Stone Age existence.  He threatens the world with nuclear war, starves the people in his own country and tortured American student Otto Warmbier to the point that he passed away once he was returned to the United States.  Kim Yo Jong is not only a part of that cruel family, but is a part of the brutal regime.  Nothing should be romanticized about her as she is an enemy.”

Tuesday, August 15, 2017, Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Saks) and Ranking Member Jim Cooper (D-Tennessee) sent a bipartisan letter to President Trump to help the United States better prepare and handle the most recent North Korean threats. The bill was passed in July following successful tests of North Korean missile technology.

Chairman Rogers said, “President Trump has already begun to make tremendous strides in rebuilding our National defense. And his strong stand against the North Korean threat is greatly welcomed. Today, I ask President Trump to fully support the $2.5 billion increase to ensure we are completely prepared to deal with any threat that comes out of North Korea. The funding Mr. Cooper and I have requested is the same amount that passed overwhelmingly by the House in this year’s NDAA.”
