Fischer Statement on U.S. Air Strikes in Syria

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-Neb.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to conduct air strikes in Syria:

 “The horrific actions of Bashar al-Assad, including the use of chemical weapons against his own people, had to be met with firm resolve. Last night, our president took the decisive action necessary. This proportional response demonstrated the United States' moral and global leadership. For several years, I have called for a strategy from the previous administration to deal with this increasingly complicated situation. I look forward to working with the Trump administration on their plan to fully address this crisis.”
