mike johnson2So far, the Congressional delegation’s comments about President Trump’s Afghanistan speech has been somewhat muted, although a North Louisiana Congressman freshman has issued a statement in support.  


Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04) released the following statement after President Trump’s speech outlining his strategy for Afghanistan:

“The hasty withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011 has proven to be a disaster, and we cannot repeat that mistake in Afghanistan. Fortunately, President Trump has made a strategy-based commitment to increase our military capabilities and put forth a plan to bring the conflict in this region toward a responsible end.

“Terrorism must be rooted out entirely, and we should be doing everything in our power to ensure that happens. I applaud the president’s commitment to act with resolve in Afghanistan and to devote the necessary resources to get the job done.”
