Democratic National Security Task Force Responds to the President’s State of the Union Address

January 31st, 2018

Washington, D.C. – The co-chairs of the Democratic Caucus’ National Security Task Force—Congressman Seth Moulton (MA), Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy (FL), and Congressman Jimmy Panetta (CA)—issued the following statement in response to the President’s State of the Union address:

“The State of the Union is an opportunity for the President to explain to the American people and their representatives in Congress the most serious security threats our country faces and our plan to address those threats.  Unfortunately, whether the subject was North Korea, Russia, China, Iran, or terrorism, we were treated to simplistic slogans rather than substance or strategy. Moreover, given the news that the President has refused to impose legally-required sanctions on Russia, we are deeply troubled that we heard nothing from the President about how he intends to hold Russia accountable for interfering in our democracy. Our nation deserves a clear understanding of the President’s foreign policy vision.  Tonight’s speech merely added to the fog.”

The Democratic Caucus National Security Task Force was established in June 2017 by the House Democratic Caucus to support the creation, execution, and public messaging of national security policies that are strong, smart, and strategic.
