Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL), Lead Republican of the House Armed Services Committee, released a statement following reports that the Biden administration has delayed a previously planned Minuteman III ICBM test.
“Earlier this year, President Biden canceled a long-standing Minuteman III ICBM test as a useless concession to Vladimir Putin. Now, we learn that President Biden has postponed a second ICBM test to placate Xi’s tantrums. This news comes after China conducted live-fire exercises following the Speaker of the House’s visit to Taiwan. These weak-kneed pearl-clutching attempts at appeasement hurt our readiness and will only invite further aggression by our adversaries.”
