Dec 19, 2017 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement after President Trump unveiled his National Security Strategy (NSS):
“The United States faces real and ongoing threats from terrorists, rogue regimes, nation-states, and others who wish to bring harm directly to our shores. America’s adversaries share the common goals of challenging our interests, weakening our alliances and partnerships, and disrupting our way of life. Our rivals seek ways to diminish our global leadership, reduce our international influence, and undermine the rules-based world order underwritten by the United States since the end of the Second World War.
“The National Security Strategy outlined by President Trump is the first step in confronting these challenges, but it should not end there. We must rebuild our military readiness in order to maintain our edge over our adversaries, and we must provide our diplomats the resources necessary to advance American influence. Additionally, Congress must put an end to the dreadful impact sequester has had on our men and women in uniform.”
