Congo’s elections have been delayed for two years, causing violence and political unrest in the country, and its president is using violence, coercion, and other unsavory, illegal tactics to hold onto power. Congress needs to pass this bill to protect Congolese citizens and the upcoming election.
The Trump administration has already expressed its support for sanctions against Congo, levying sanctions against corrupt government officials and others associated with the regime. This bill doesn’t add anything new to existing sanctions.
