(Hudson, WI) – Jason Church, candidate for Congress in Wisconsin’s Seventh District, released the following statement regarding Rep. Jackie Speier’s comments that the Ukrainian plane crash in Iran is part of “collateral damage” from President Trump’s killing of Gen Qassem Soleimani:

“Rep. Jackie Speier’s insinuation that President Trump is to blame for the Ukrainian plane crash in Iran shows how the Democrats are using the situation for political games. They are more concerned about undermining this President than they are in fighting terrorism. Democrats need to take a stand and denounce Rep. Speier’s comments.

“President Trump made the right decision by taking out one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists, Qassem Soleimani. The actions of the Democrats since the strike in Iran shows why we need a new class of conservative veteran leaders in Washington. We need people who understand these conflicts to lead the fight against terrorism to protect the safety of America, and the world.”
