Senator David Perdue On President Trump’s Message To United Nations

“President Trump is displaying strong leadership at a time when the world needs it most.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on President Trump’s address at the annual United Nations General Assembly:

“Since day one of his administration, President Trump has taken bold action to reassert America’s national security interests. It’s no secret the world is more dangerous now than any time in my lifetime. President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and Ambassador Haley have made major strides to improve accountability and transparency at the United Nations, which is critical as we address complex threats from North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China. Today, President Trump sent a strong message to all sovereign nations: the United States will not tolerate expansionist foreign powers, will fight against human trafficking, and will partner worldwide to tackle the global drug crisis. The President also reiterated that the United States will never allow Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of terror, to possess a nuclear weapon. President Trump is displaying strong leadership at a time when the world needs it most.”
