Press Conference: Tulsi Introduces Legislation to Prevent Trump from Escalating Nuclear Arms Race

The risk of nuclear catastrophe is greater than ever before, and Trump’s decision to pull out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty heightens the danger of a nuclear holocaust. It will spark a new nuclear arms race, undermine our national security and divert precious resources away from the domestic programs to serve our people and communities.

This INF Treaty Compliance Act (H.R. 1249) will ensure that our country remains compliant with the INF Treaty and prevent a single taxpayer dollar from being used for weapons that would breach the treaty. This is one step Congress can and must take now toward national security and peace.
