Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve Chabot (R-OH), a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, released the following statement on President Trump’s military response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians in Idlib, Syria:

“President Assad’s barbaric attack on innocent civilians demonstrates yet again that he will ignore the global community until he is forced to listen. Last night, President Trump ordered the United States military to conduct a limited strike on the airbase that the Syrian government used to stage the latest chemical weapons attack. The President’s response makes clear that Mr. Assad’s repeated violations of international norms will no longer be tolerated.

“I want to urge the President to consult with Congress before committing significant numbers of troops on the ground.”
