TweetDeck : Erdogan’s invasion of northeastern Syria has created the conditions for the reemergence of ISIS and the destruction of our allies. These outcomes must not only be addressed by the Administration but by Congress as well.

TweetDeck : Our legislation builds upon the Administrations’ efforts to sanction Turkey and goes further in important areas like prohibiting military assistance and transactions to the Turkish Armed Forces as well as mandates sanctions due to the S-400 purchases.

TweetDeck : At a time when the United States needs to speak with a clear voice regarding Turkey’s invasion into northeastern Syria, this bipartisan sanctions bill is that clear voice.

TweetDeck : Lindsey Graham on Rep. Elijah Cummings: He was a good man. If you disagreed with him, that was okay, because he would help you where he could. I think he represented the best of what a Congressman is like.

TweetDeck : REMINDER:

Press conference today at 12:30 pm in the Senate Radio-TV Gallery to introduce bipartisan Turkey sanctions with Senator Chris Van Hollen.

The legislation would impose severe sanctions on Turkish officials in response to their incursion into northern Syria.

TweetDeck : We have lost a very good man with the passing of Elijah Cummings.

Elijah was passionate and kind. He made a difference for the people of Maryland and the nation. He was a friend and a person you could do business with.

My prayers go out to Elijah’s family and friends.

TweetDeck : The worst thing any Commander in Chief can do is to give land back to the enemy that was taken through blood and sacrifice.

I fear those are the consequences of the actions being taken right now.

TweetDeck : President Trump is being told EXACTLY what President Obama was told before he withdrew from Iraq.

He appears to be hell-bent on making the same mistakes in Syria as President Obama made in Iraq.

TweetDeck : Mr. President, forget about what I’m saying about Syria.

Listen to your own national security team who are telling you the consequences of your decision and the impact it will have on our nation.

TweetDeck : The statements by President Trump about Turkey’s invasion being of no concern to us also completely undercut Vice President Pence and Sec. Pompeo’s ability to end the conflict.

TweetDeck : I worry we will not have allies in the future against radical Islam, ISIS will reemerge, & Iran’s rise in Syria will become a nightmare for Israel.

I fear this is a complete and utter national security disaster in the making and I hope President Trump will adjust his thinking.
