“I am extremely shocked and saddened to learn about the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse and the attack on First Lady Martine Moïse of Haiti. This is a horrific incident that must be condemned in the strongest terms, as well as investigated to the full extent possible. Furthermore, our thoughts are with our friends and neighbors in the Haitian community, not just in Florida but throughout the world, who suffer the direct impacts of the situation in Haiti, during this deeply upsetting moment of turmoil. They can count on our full support. We are also hoping for the First Lady’s speedy recovery and are keeping her and the Haitian people in our prayers.”
