Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson made the following statement following the attack in Manchester:

"Yesterday’s terrorist attack in Manchester is a senseless act of violence against innocent civilians. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. 

"Just this weekend, President Trump stood with leaders of Arab nations and called for an end to violence and extremism. I am confident that we stand with our allies in the United Kingdom in condemning the attack and support them in bringing those responsible to justice as we achieve victory in the Global War on Terrorism."

Congressman Wilson is a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and House Armed Services Committee. He serves as Co-Chair of the U.K. Caucus and Co-Chair of the EU Caucus.
