We are edging closer and closer to war with Iran every day. We must stop President Trump before he goes so far down the track of war with Iran that there’ll be no turning back.
I’m a combat veteran. For the last 16 years, I’ve served in the Army National Guard and deployed twice to the Middle East. In Congress, I’ve served for more than 6 years on the Foreign Affairs, Armed Services, and Homeland Security Committees. I know the importance of national security. I’m experienced in and have a deep understanding of foreign affairs. And I know the tremendous cost of war.
I can say with confidence that a war with Iran would be disastrous — far deadlier and more expensive than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The entire region will be engulfed in bloodletting. Countless lives will be lost. Trillions upon trillions of our taxpayer dollars will be wasted, while our national security is severely undermined. ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorists will be strengthened and a massive new immigration crisis will emerge. And a war with Iran will inevitably lead the US to direct confrontation with nuclear powers Russia and China.
We must not let President Trump, John Bolton or any member of the State Department pull us into war with Iran. That’s why I’m speaking out. It’s also why I’ve introduced a bill called the “No More Presidential Wars Act” to stop Trump — and all Presidents, Democrats and Republicans alike — from pulling us into a war without approval from Congress.

A few weeks after President Trump took office, I met with him to try to prevent the exact situation we’re in today. From administration to administration, Republican or Democrat, the same Washington foreign policy establishment has been in the ear of US presidents pushing them to war. I met with Trump to try to change that — to ensure that he understood the cost of war on our troops and our nation, and that he lived up to his campaign promise to end “stupid wars.”
I’m not an ideologue. I don’t tow the party line. I am committed to defending the interests of the American people before the interests of the establishment, powerful corporations, war profiteers and foreign governments. I’m running for president to protect our country and the world from the dangerous warmongers from both political parties that have been dragging us from one regime change war to the next.
