WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Tillis (R-NC) appeared on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, where they discussed ISIS’ siege of the Iraqi city of Ramadi, the need for the United States to continue training Iraqi forces, and Tillis’ recent trip to Iraq, where he met with Iraqi and Kurdish leaders. 

“Anytime ISIS takes ground it's a bad thing,” said Senator Tillis “We need to be prepared through the coalition forces to provide air support. The Iraqi armed services have to go in and have to defend the situation on the ground. We need to do everything we can to hold the spread and focus efforts back on eradicating them from Ramadi.”
