Senator David Perdue Statement On Terrorist Attack In Nice, France

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement regarding the Bastille Day terrorist attack in Nice, France:

“Again, France is experiencing another unconscionable tragedy. It is chilling to witness these occurrences across the world, seemingly without an end in sight. America will continue to stand in solidarity with the people of France, our longtime ally. It is time for our country, and the international community, to double down on efforts to eliminate radical Islamic terrorism. For too long, jihadists have successfully radicalized people and carried out horrific crimes against innocent people. This must stop.

“President Obama must reevaluate his strategy to defeat ISIS and other extremist groups. But, while we bolster our efforts to combat terrorism abroad, it is equally important that we strengthen our efforts to protect against terrorism here at home. This starts with securing our borders and improving our intelligence efforts, as well as providing our troops with what they need to take on these threats worldwide.”
