Tester statement on President’s ISIS speech

Senator: The U.S. shouldn’t fight this fight alone

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement after President Obama outlined his plans for dealing with ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria:

“I appreciate the President developing a coalition to take the fight to ISIS. But this must be different from Iraq a decade ago. It must be a true coalition with full support from our allies. Moving forward, the President must meaningfully consult with Congress and keep American boots off the ground. Above all, any mission must make Americans safer.”
