Posted On January 8, 2020

Albuquerque, January 8–The following is a statement from Party Chairman Steve Pearce regarding this morning’s presidential address on Iran:

“First and foremost, I am pleased to hear that no Americans were killed or injured in the Iranian missile attack. The safety of our men and women overseas is a top priority. The fact that Iran ‘appears to be standing down’ after the strike shows that Iran understands our military might and potential future consequences. The President has allowed Iran to save face by not responding to the latest missile attack. They have the good judgment not to hit any Americans. It’s good to see our Western allies, like Britain and Italy standing strong with us and now on military standby. President Trump today demonstrated great leadership and a sound understanding of the Middle East region. It is evident he is working to de-escalate rising tensions, while staying tough when it comes to Iran trying to become a nuclear power.”
