After backing a measure censuring President Barack Obama for his executive actions on gun control last week, U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., brought out another censure against the president on Wednesday, this time hitting the White House on national security.
Yoho, who sits on the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, explained his censure measure on Wednesday. The North Florida Republican pointed to Obama’s handling of Middle Eastern affairs, including the rise of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorism and the White House’s deal with the Iranian regime over its nuclear program.
“President Obama’s reckless endangerment of our national security cannot continue to go unchecked,” Yoho said. “The number one job of the president of the United States when he takes the oath of office is to protect and defend our great country from all enemies foreign and domestic. The president has failed miserably on that account. From his irresponsible deal with Iran to his breathtakingly large underestimation of ISIS, the president’s misguided decisions have time and again affected the safety of each and every American.
