07/10/20 - Rep. Schneider posted the following to Facebook: "Erdogan has today disgraced Turkey and its rich tradition of multiculturalism with this decision. Hagia Sophia cathedral is a revered holy site for Christians and Muslims alike, a treasure for the world—not a political pawn for divisive autocrats. Erdogan’s declaration is an affront to all who seek coexistence and mutual understanding." View the Facebook post here.

11/13/19 - Rep. Schneider posted the following to Facebook: "President Trump’s impulsive decisions continue to do immeasurable damage to the United States’ foreign policy. It’s even more concerning when these decisions are made to benefit his own personal interests rather than U.S. national security and foreign policy priorities. We should all be troubled that authoritarian leaders like Turkey’s Erdogan are welcomed to the White House as his country is committing war crimes in Syria. And we should be even more worried when allies like France and Israel are publicly raising questions about whether they can continue to count on U.S. support." View the Facebook post here.

10/16/19 - Rep. Schneider posted the following to Facebook: "The President’s abandonment of our Kurdish allies is more than just tragic for the human suffering it unleashed, it also weakens our national security, undermines our fight against ISIS, and diminishes American credibility. We are only as good as our word, which is why I just voted for and the House overwhelmingly passed (354-60) a bipartisan, bicameral resolution opposing the President’s craven decision and calling for Turkey to immediately cease their military attacks in Syria."

10/10/19 - Rep. Schneider posted the following to Facebook: "As we knew would happen, Turkey responded to President Trump’s impulsive and reckless withdraw of U.S. forces in Northeastern Syria by invading and attacking our Kurdish allies. President Trump has turned America’s back on the people who sacrificed more than 10,000 fighters in our joint battle to defeat ISIS, to disastrous results. This is not just a humanitarian tragedy for those in the region, but a decision with repercussions for America’s relationships around the world. The President has sown doubt in our commitment to our allies and damaged relationships that will require great work to repair." View the Facebook post here.
