Posted November 7, 2016 at 5:34am

The Wall Street Journal reports that “American military leaders in Europe are seeking to reassure allies and partners that the U.S. remains committed to the continent, amid questions arising ahead of the presidential election.”

“On a three-day visit to Ukraine, which concluded Saturday, Gen. Ben Hodges, the commander of the U.S. Army Europe, fielded questions from Ukrainian soldiers and reporters about the future of the U.S. presence in that country and elsewhere.”

“Gen. Hodges repeatedly emphasized that support in Congress for Ukraine has been bipartisan and stability in Europe is unquestionably in America’s economic and national-security interests.”
