Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) tonight issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s announcement of military action against the Syrian regime:

“If Assad keeps using weapons banned by the world 100 years ago to kill innocent Syrians, America is morally bound to respond. Unlike the previous administration where red lines to act were feel good talking points, Commander-In-Chief Trump stood up to end slaughter.  I’m encouraged that other freedom loving nations like Great Britain and France have joined us to end the Assad regime while sending a clear message to President Putin to end all Russian support of tyrants.
