Date: April 13, 2018
Location: Miami, FL

Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) issued the following statement after President Trump announced military strikes against the Syrian regime.

"Tonight, President Trump took a firm stance and decisively punished the Assad dictatorship for its use of horrifying chemical weapons on innocent people. Bashar al-Assad has mercilessly murdered his own people with weapons so terrible that the international community has banned them for almost a century. Tonight's strike was ordered to ensure chemical warfare remains a banned weapon. I also stand with the President in his condemnation of the Russian and Iranian regimes for their support of the Syrian despot still torturing his citizens."
