Rep. Barbara Lee: President Trump is Alienating Our Allies and Emboldening Our Foes

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee issued the following statement on President Trump’s National Security Strategy:

“Actions speak louder than words. And over the past eleven months, President Trump’s actions have alienated our allies, emboldened our foes, undermined our diplomatic efforts, and escalated our involvement in wars around the world.

“In his speech today, President Trump signaled that he will continue to lead America down a dangerous path of increased isolationism and militarization. Therefore, it is up to Congress to finally act to rein in this White House. I urge my colleagues in Congress to fulfill their constitutional responsibilities and bring much-needed oversight and accountability to this White House, before the United States becomes further entangled in perpetual wars.”
