The “End The Forever War” pledge calls for bringing the global war on terror and U.S. involvement in conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere to an “expedient conclusion.”
“We’ve continued in a constant state of war for the last seventeen years, and it has cost us tremendously in American lives as well as billions of dollars that could have been used to help families here at home,” Yang said in a statement.
“Ending the forever wars is not just a slogan but is instead my top foreign policy priority, and I am committed to bringing these wars to a conclusion and restoring the power to intervene militarily to Congress where it belongs.”
