Senator David Perdue On White House Briefing About Iran Threats

05.21.19

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on today's briefing from Trump Administration officials about recent confirmed threats from Iran. The briefing was led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford.

'Based on today's briefing, it's clear that the Trump Administration's response to confirmed threats made by Iran has been measured and appropriate,' said Senator Perdue. 'The White House's actions were necessary to ensure Iran does not misunderstand our intentions. I hope this will remind Iran that it is in their best interest to rethink their posture as the largest supporter of terrorism around the world.'
