WASHINGTON — Senator Mike Braun released the following statement on President Biden’s decision to send 3,000 troops to Eastern Europe.

“I am strongly opposed to President Biden’s decision to send American troops to Eastern Europe to defend countries that should defend themselves, potentially involving us in another conflict after just ending a 20 year war. Two weeks ago President Biden killed a sanctions package in the U.S. Senate that would have deterred Putin by shutting down the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline. President Biden’s weakness on the world stage will put more American troops in harm’s way just as it did in his disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal.” – SENATOR MIKE BRAUN
