WASHINGTON, D.C.—Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) issued the following statement today regarding the terror attack in Nice, France:

“It appears that once again, a radical Islamic terrorist has carried out a deadly attack on innocent, peaceful people, including at least two Americans. Our whole nation stands in solidarity with the French people, and with all of those still suffering in the wake of this tragic Bastille Day attack in Nice. We will never allow terrorists or their evil ideology to rob us of our freedoms, our democratic ideals, or our way of life. We will pray and mourn for those killed and injured, and we must honor their loss by redoubling our efforts to defeat the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism throughout the world.”
