Maxine Waters: ‘We Need to Find Out If We Can Work With’ North Korea

The controversial congresswoman told a TMZ reporter that diplomacy was the answer.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a TMZ reporter on Wednesday that the United States should “work with” North Korea on the communist dictatorship’s goals.

“I think there are some things that [North Korea] want from us, and we have to find out whether or not we can work with them on the things that they’re asking for,” she said.

“This is a time for diplomacy,” Waters declared, rebuking President Trump’s more aggressive stance toward Pyongyang.

The Democratic congresswoman also blamed the State Department and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for the failures in diplomatic ties with the rogue nation.

This is not the first time Waters has taken the side of a hostile state. When domestic terrorist and cop killer Assata Shakur fled to Cuba, Waters wrote to dictator Fidel Castro to request that the communist regime grant Shakur asylum.
