Congressman Ralph Norman (SC-05) has released the following statement in response to President Trump's Afghanistan strategy:
"I fully support President Trump's strategy for gaining stability in Afghanistan and keeping America safe. Our enemies should never know our strategic plans. Conditions on the ground and expertise of our military leaders must determine our defense strategy, not arbitrary and public deadlines. General Mattis and our military leaders have my full confidence in their capability of implementing a smart and effective plan to win in Afghanistan. The President's plan will ensure that terrorists will never use Afghanistan as a haven to attack United States soil again."
