Sen. Ben Sasse Calls On Trump To Reconsider Syria Decision

Oct 11, 2019

(Washington, DC)  --  Senator Ben Sasse is asking President Trump to reconsider his decision to pull American troops from Syria. The junior senator from Nebraska issued a statement yesterday calling Turkish President Recep Erdogan a "bad guy," and said the Kurds in the area are still guarding thousands of ISIS prisoners. Earlier this week, Sasse said the president's decision would lead to the slaughter of American allies.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska has kicked off his re-election campaign surrounded by top Republicans who vouched for the first-term lawmaker as best candidate in the deeply conservative state.

Sasse announced his 2020 campaign bid Monday, saying he'll work to minimize the role of Washington in Nebraska residents' lives and support President Donald Trump's "really great judicial nominees."
