Sen. Gardner: Plan Needed After U.S. Missile Strikes In Syria

April 10, 2017
Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado says the Trump administration needs to present Congress with a “well-thought-out plan” for military intervention in Syria.
 
“I hope in the coming days we will see that emerge, not only from the Trump administration, not just a one-sided plan, but something our coalition of nations can support that ultimately leads to peace in Syria,” Gardner told NPR’s Rachel Martin.
 
“It’s very important that the United States not proceed unilaterally,” he added.
 
Gardner, a member of the foreign relations committee, said he supported President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian air base last week. He says it will change how the Russian government views the United States. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to visit Moscow later this week.
 
“In many ways, this conversation is going to be much different that it could have been 30 days ago,” Gardner said.
