Senator Tim Scott Reacts To President’s ISIS Speech

Washington, DC- Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the following statement following President Obama’s White House speech this evening on combating ISIS: “Our world remains a dangerous place and requires America to show decisive leadership, principled strength and continuous resolve when confronted with threats like ISIS. Lest we forget, two American journalists – James Foley and Steven Sotloff – were barbarically beheaded by these and ISIS continue to show an eagerness to act brutally against religious minorities and other innocent people of the region. “I am hopeful that the President’s outline for regional partnerships to combat this continuing threat is finally signaling a willingness to strategically address the rise of ISIS.”
