Congressman Jodey Arrington released this statement on Friday:

"I support President Trump’s decisive response to these abhorrent and inhumane chemical attacks on innocent lives. I am not surprised that Russia and Assad failed to keep their promise, and the world should not be surprised that we now have a Commander-in-Chief who is willing to hold them accountable. 

"This is what American strength and leadership looks like, and this is how you deal with terrorists and barbarians. Assad, Putin, and the rest of the world just learned that America is no longer in the business of making idle threats. I look forward to the President and his team presenting a plan to Congress for dealing with these and other threats to our national security interests going forward."
