Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on President Trump's comments on Qatar's support for terrorist organizations:

"President Trump is right to support the Arab-led effort to change Qatar's behavior once and for all. This situation is a strategic opportunity to seize, not a crisis to manage. Qatar's support for terrorist organizations, especially Hamas, threatens the security of its neighbors and the United States, impedes progress toward peace in the Holy Land, and encourages malign activities by other Middle East nations."
