In Her Own Words

"What we’ve begun to understand is that universal background checks for all gun sales is probably the No. 1 most common-sense way to be able to change the extremist culture that we’re living under."

"The United States needs to act as an honest peace broker in Israel and the Middle East at-large, and the White House’s actions to move unilaterally on major foreign policy decisions hurts our reputation and efforts to act as an arbiter in this immensely complicated issue."
