WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) issued this statement on U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley’s statement on yesterday’s chemical attack in Syria.
“I appreciate the strong and articulate statement by Ambassador Haley condemning the chemical attack in Syria and laying blame at the feet of Assad and Russia. Her strong indictment of Russia was an appropriate response to the outrageous conduct of the Putin regime. Now, these strong words should be followed up by strong action. It’s simply impossible to shame the Assad and Putin regimes with words alone.
“I hope President Trump and his national security team will now act decisively to reshape the situation in Syria.”
