Jan 8, 2020 Issues: Foreign Affairs and Defense

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) issued the following statement after President Trump addressed the nation regarding the January 7 Iranian missile strikes:

"After years of Iranian aggression and the last administration's appeasement policy, America is leading again under President Trump. He has shown the resolve and restraint necessary to confront the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism. It was the right decision to eliminate Iran's top terrorist, Qassam Soleimani, something previous presidents failed to do. Attacks on Americans will no longer be tolerated. I stand behind this president as he pursues peace through strength."
