CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER’S STATEMENT ON U.K. TERROR ATTACK

 

WASHINGTON – Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) had this statement after learning of tonight’s terror attack in Manchester, England:

“The horrific attack on families and children at the concert in the U.K. again demands the focus and determination of free loving peoples to unite together to eliminate the deadly threats to our way of life.  In his speech to 50 Arab nations, President Trump clearly conveyed the ominous threat of Islamic terrorists and the absolute necessity for global resolve to drive out this diabolic adversary.  We will continue to work with our allies in Parliaments throughout the world to utilize every tool of counterterrorism and military tactical efforts to win this battle.”

Congressman Pittenger is Chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare and Vice Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance.
