Hartzler: Trump is right; we must rebuild America's strength

(From Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler)

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04), Chairwoman of the Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee on the House Armed Services Committee, today made the following statement in response to the release of President Donald Trump’s National Security Strategy:

“President Trump is absolutely correct when he says we must rebuild America’s strength to ensure it remains second to none. He highlights a serious reality – threats across the globe have continued to escalate and our ability to respond to those threats has diminished. We must ensure our military has the ability to operate across all domains, which means giving our men and women in uniform the funding they need to strengthen vital capabilities. I call on my colleagues to remember this responsibility and fully fund defense for 2018 when we vote later this week.”
