|(Thornton, Colorado) Steve House, Republican candidate for Colorado’s sixth Congressional District issued the following statement regarding the death of Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s Quds Force and other pro-Iran militia leaders in Iraq.
“President Trump has once again proven that he puts America, our allies and the interest of our troops first. By using an appropriate level of force in a strong and expedient way, he ensured that the necessary secrecy was maintained while an effective response could be delivered to an enemy who has been responsible for killing thousands of Americans over a 20 year period,” Said House. “American service members, our allies and the world are safer because President Trump acted in an appropriate manner under these circumstances. And may God continue to bless America and keep our troops safe from harm.”
