MacArthur Offers Full-Throated Endorsement of Trump’s Syrian Strikes

President Trump’s decision to intervene in the Middle East’s ugliest civil war in generations and strike a Syrian target drew praise from South Jersey’s Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) on Friday morning.

“I fully support this decisive action against the Assad regime and salute our service members for carrying out this mission,” the Congressman said in a statement. “Earlier this week, Assad launched a barbaric chemical weapons attack against the Syrian people—killing innocent people, including many children.  These strikes send an important message that America will not stay silent and allow this type of evil to exist in the world.”
