Today, by passing my #ArmenianGenocide resolution, the Senate finally stood up to confirm history: What happened in Armenia was – most assuredly – genocide. There is no other word for it. There is no euphemism. There is no avoiding it.
To overlook human suffering is not who we are as a people. It is not what we stand for as a nation. We are better than that, and our foreign policy should always reflect this. Beyond honored and humbled to be part of this important moment of our history.
To those in the Armenian community—I promised I wouldn’t stop fighting until this day came. Thank you for your nonstop support and advocacy.
