Rep. Grijalva Statement on the Killing of Qasem Soleimani

TUCSON—Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement after the Pentagon confirmed that a U.S.-led airstrike killed General Qasem Soleimani, the top leader of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC):

“While Trump golfs at his private club in Florida, his reckless actions have endangered the lives of American diplomats and servicemembers around the world, dramatically escalated tensions in the Middle East, and raised the likelihood of another endless war in the region. From his decision to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal to his warmongering advisors in the White House, President Trump has made the decision to forgo diplomacy and pursue a disastrous foreign policy toward Iran. Time and time again, President Trump has proven himself to be guided by erratic impulses over thoughtful leadership. Congress has not authorized war with Iran, and we will not allow President Trump to lead us into another endless war in the Middle East.”
