WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Braun released the following statement on President Trump’s airstrike that killed Commander of Iranian Forces Qassim Suleimani.

“President Trump made the courageous decision to kill Qassim Suleimani, who was the leader of Iran’s violence against the United States that was directly responsible for killing American soldiers through IEDs for over a decade and was planning future attacks against American citizens throughout the Middle East.  Iran has been one of America’s greatest enemies and I’m proud that President Trump is protecting our country and our allies.” – U.S. Senator Mike Braun
