U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow said in a statement that President Trump must have a clear strategy and policy on Syria following his issuance of air strikes there on Thursday night.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) issued a statement following Thursday night's attack on Syria. President Donald Trump ordered a barrage of cruise missiles on a Syria air base in retaliation for a gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians.  

Sen. Stabenow's statement to WKAR NEWS:

"The Syrian people have endured horrendous atrocities at the hands of their government, and the latest chemical weapons attack against innocent children and their families demands a response. The Trump Administration must ensure that further US action is part of a clear strategy and policy that includes diplomatic coordination with our allies, as well as input from Congress. I stand behind our service members involved in last night’s military action and commend their bravery.”
