Reactive, escalating leadership

In these tense and challenging times, we need leadership that responds, rather than reacts! We need thoughtful and prudent choices, not reckless actions that escalate retaliation. I want a president who respects the role of Congress and consults with others, rather than arrogantly acting alone. I want a president I can trust — not someone who consistently lies, and seems incapable of admitting when he’s made mistakes. I want actions that truly promote peacemaking, not justifications for provoking war.

Speak up! Let President Trump, and our elected officials, know that we want wise and peaceful resolutions with Iran, not war.
