    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - President Donald Trump and his administration must use all available tools in order to reach a successful outcome during negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and denuclearize the Korean peninsula, US Senator Joe Donnelly said in a statement ahead of Tuesday's summit.

    "I support President Trump and his administration’s stated goal of complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization, and I continue to believe we should utilize all available tools – economic, diplomatic, and military — in order to give our country the best chance for a successful outcome that makes… America safer," Donnelly said on Monday.

    Donnelly added that everyone wants Trump's discussions with Kim to be successful.
