McConnell Statement On Passage Of National Security Supplemental

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement on the passage of supplemental national security legislation:

“The Senate understands the responsibilities of America’s national security and will not neglect them.

“For three years, a policy of hesitation, short-sightedness, and self-deterrence led the world to wonder whether the United States still has the resolve to face growing, coordinated threats.

“Today, we faced a clear test of that resolve. Our adversaries want America to decide that reinforcing allies and partners is not in our interest, and that investing in strategic competition is not worth it. They want us to take hard-earned credibility and light it on fire.

“But today, the Senate responded by reaffirming a commitment to rebuild and modernize our military, restore our credibility, and give the current Commander-in-Chief, as well as the next, more tools to secure our interests.

“History settles every account. And today, on the value of American leadership and strength, history will record that the Senate did not blink.”
