Las Vegas – Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement after President Donald addressed the nation to discuss his military strategy in the Middle East.

"After months of waiting for his 'secret strategy’ to address the war in Afghanistan, the American people should not be satisfied with the President's belated address tonight. While he rightfully emphasized the need to work with our partners to strengthen institutions in the region, he ignores how difficult that will be if he cuts funding for the State Department by more than 30 percent. Diplomacy must be the foundation of our strategy moving forward, and Congress must ensure we have the resources to achieve peace. It's way past time for President Trump to stop tweeting and act like a world leader."
