Jackie_Walorski_RepresentativeU.S. Representative Jackie Walorski (IN-02) Wednesday released the following statement after Secretary of State John Kerry in a speech defended the Obama administration’s refusal to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israeli settlements:

“Secretary Kerry’s comments today, coming on the heels of the Obama administration’s abstention on the U.N. Security Council’s disgraceful anti-Israel resolution, represent yet another blow to Israel in the final days of the Obama presidency. These comments show why we need new leadership in the White House, and I look forward to working with President-elect Trump to provide real, substantive support to our good friend and ally Israel.”

Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee and House Committee on Agriculture.
