Hartzler Statement on House Democrats’ War Powers Resolution
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) issued the following statement against the War Powers Resolution from House Democrats curbing President Trump’s Iran strategy:
“Our decisive strike against Iran and its regime of terror has sent a clear signal that the United States will take whatever means necessary to keep our nation safe. The President has made it clear that we do not seek, nor desire, war. President Trump has called on the Iranian leadership to join us in bringing peace to the Middle East. His implementation of sanctions will further put pressure on the Iranians, and this strategic approach provides America the upper hand,” Hartzler said.
“This resolution, led by Speaker Pelosi, not only ties the President’s hands at a time when flexibility is needed, but it also sends a signal to the Iranians that the defense of our nation is not at the forefront of congressional priorities. Instead, this resolution suggests that partisan politics are. The President and his advisors need flexibility in conducting our national security and Congress should come together and support the security of our nation as a unified front.”
