Today, Congressman Tom Reed discussed the bipartisan House delegation trip to Germany, Denmark, Poland, and Greenland. “Unfortunately, I see major storms on the horizon the longer Putin’s war is allowed to continue. Our NATO allies, in particular Poland, are stepping up to deal with Putin’s criminal war and the humanitarian crisis that it is creating. I thank them for this effort and reaffirm my commitment to stand with them to see this through.” Said Reed. “Further, as we address the rising threats countries like Russia and China present to America’s security and the security of our friends around the globe, we must ensure our NATO partners, European allies, and all other democracies of the world, know that they can depend on the United States. The message to the world is simple: you can not rely on the unreliable. America has always led the way, and you can rely on us to always stand with our friends.”
This bipartisan delegation sought to demonstrate solidarity with our NATO allies and to visit with Ukrainian refugees seeking shelter across the border in Poland.
