Pence called the summit the First Step toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The vice president also vowed to prioritize policy issues that matter to evangelical Christians and praised actions by President Trump that have been as victories for evangelical Christians such as moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Pence also praised the president’s leadership for the success of this week’s summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un.

Pence says, "From the outset of our administration President Trump changed our policy toward North Korea, ending years of what was known as strategic patience. The President brought unprecedented economic and diplomatic sanctions to bear on North Korea and he used kind of tough rhetoric in South Korea and at the United Nations that communicated Americas resolve to product our country and stand without allies."
