Apr 7, 2017 Issues: Foreign Affairs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today released the follow statement in response to the U.S. airstrikes in Syria:

“This response, while appropriate given the horrendous use of chemical weapons by Assad, must be a part of a broader strategy that should be developed in consultation with Congress. A military solution alone cannot solve this problem in Syria, and the full strategy must include humanitarian relief for those suffering.

“It must be recognized that this action represents a 180 degree pivot from President Trump’s earlier statements. Such a reversal demonstrates plainly why it is so critical to fully understand the President’s further plans for engagement in Syria.”
