Slotkin Resolution Sends Dangerous Message to U.S. Enemies

LANSING, Mich., January 6, 2020 – The following statement is from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox in response to the announcement by Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Michigan Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin will spearhead a resolution to limit President Trump’s ability to fight Iranian terror operations. 

"Last week President Trump rightfully used his powers as Commander-in-Chief to eliminate the leader of a radical group which has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the United States Government. Qasem Soleimani was directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. service members, and since 2013 he has conducted a clandestine war against the United States and our allies. By trying to limit President Trump's powers to deal with such terrorists, Nancy Pelosi and Elissa Slotkin are sending a dangerous message to our enemies overseas and turning their backs on the victims Soleimani left in his wake."
