Scalise Applauds Trump Action in Syria

Apr 14, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement regarding President Trump's announcement of retaliatory action in Syria:

"I strongly support President Trump’s decision to work with our UK and French allies to respond decisively to the Syrian regime’s criminal use of chemical weapons against innocent men, women and children. President Trump is right to assert that the Assad regime’s evil acts cannot go unanswered, and the nations that enable Assad’s murderous acts – namely Russia and Iran – must be put on notice and held to account. I pray for our men and women in uniform, and their British and French counterparts, as they carry out this morally important mission. And I pray that we succeed in providing relief to those innocent people living under Assad’s barbaric reign.”
