Chairman Crowley Statement on President Trump’s Speech to the UN General Assembly

September 19, 2017

(Queens, NY) – Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s address to the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly:

“President Trump had the opportunity today to lay out a clear vision for U.S. foreign policy that will ensure our national security, promote peace and stability around the globe, and maintain our role as a world leader capable of bringing people together. Instead, he used the unique platform of addressing the UN General Assembly to alienate our allies and further escalate dangerous tensions. We face a number of pressing challenges that require global cooperation and real leadership. Rather than look for a path to work together with our UN partners, President Trump continues to take an isolationist position that undermines important national security goals.”
