FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – In response to President Trump escalating tensions between the United States and Iran, presidential candidate John Delaney releases the following statement:
“Many of the same individuals that pushed America towards the destructive and costly ‘regime change’ conflict with Iraq are now beating the drums of ‘regime change’ and conflict with Iran. This behavior is reckless and irresponsible.
“The most sacred duty of the President is serving as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States. It is an extraordinary responsibility; charged with defending our nation and directing the brave men and women who serve our country with honor, commitment, and excellence. They are not political pawns and should not be treated as such. The American people should ask themselves why the President is doing what he is doing.”
