Congressman Liz Cheney’s statement on President Trump's Afghanistan Strategy

For Immediate Release:​

Wilson, WY -  Congressman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) released the following statement tonight regarding President Trump’s Afghanistan strategy announcement:

“Tonight, President Trump laid out a powerful and courageous strategy for the United States in Afghanistan. I commend the President for rejecting failed Obama-era policies of artificial timelines and hasty withdrawals, and instead providing the resources necessary to deny terrorist safe-havens and keep America safe. The President has made clear that his decisions will be guided by conditions on the ground, not politics in Washington, and adopted a realistic and necessary approach with respect to Pakistan and India. Finally, he re-affirmed his commitment to ensuring we provide our men and women in uniform with everything they need to defend our nation.”
