Following the news of the Trump Administration’s military strikes in Syria, Congressman Kenny Marchant (R-Texas) released the following statement:
“Earlier this week, we witnessed the brutal murders, using chemical weapons, of Syrian men, women, and children by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Tonight, we saw active leadership by President Trump in a targeted military strike against the regime that carried out that brutality.
“With the Syrian Government violating the Chemical Weapons Convention and putting American personnel in the region at risk, this action by President Trump was necessary and warranted. We know that this week’s chemical weapons attack was not an isolated incident. The Assad regime continues to escalate their oppressive actions in violation of international law.
“President Trump’s decisive action and continued vigilance will undoubtedly save innocent lives. My hope is that this is the beginning of continued strategic actions by a global coalition to stabilize this region and save the Syrian people.”
