Tuesday afternoon, Bucks County Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick called the Trump administration’s support of the Iranians seeking governmental changes refreshing and necessary in support of freedom and liberty.

In a prepared statement, Fitzpatrick, a member of the House Foreign Affairs – Committee Subcommittee Middle East and North Africa, lent further support to the administration’s position that Iranians should have the right to choose their own future.

“It is refreshing following years of appeasement and concessions that have made Iran the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism,” he said.

“America and its allies must make it clear to Tehran that taking violent action against those peacefully assembling to demand change will result in the application of further targeted sanctions against the regime and its terrorist proxies.

“As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I believe the United States must always speak with one voice in support of freedom and liberty,” Fitzpatrick said. –PW
