I’m relieved that no American servicemembers were harmed yesterday. I remain concerned the Trump Administration still lacks a comprehensive, effective Iran strategy. It’s clear that our servicemembers, diplomats and fellow Americans in the region are now less safe.

In order to protect U.S. national security as well as our servicemembers, personnel & citizens overseas, we need a comprehensive strategy in Iran. I'm concerned the Administration lacks one. We’re stronger when we work together and partner with our allies.

Tonight’s strike took a notorious terrorist off of the battlefield. What comes next is critical for the region and the world. I am focused on ensuring that there is a strategy to protect our citizens, servicemembers, and diplomats, and that advances our national security.

We must do more to combat this senseless violence. Whether at a church, synagogue, mosque or home, everyone should be able to worship free of the fear of violence. My bipartisan bill to help secure & protect nonprofit and religious institutions will soon be signed into law.
