Senator David Perdue Applauds Sale Of F-16s To Taiwan

ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on the Trump Administration’s plan to move forward with the sale of dozens of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan:

“Since the passage of the Taiwan Relations Act forty years ago, the United States has remained steadfast in our support for Taiwan’s ability to defend itself. President Trump’s decision to move forward with the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan clearly demonstrates that our commitment is unwavering, and that the United States will continue to be a reliable partner for all who believe in the principles of democracy and self-determination. This sale is part of a broader U.S. effort to promote regional stability, and I urge the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to advance it as soon as possible.”
