Foreign Policy Views

”We need to be a global leader who brings the international community together to find solutions to the world's pressing challenges, including economic, environmental, military and political.”

”To provide for the defense of the United States or our allies from attack or imminent attack, or to prevent genocide or other crimes against humanity. I support the current plans for withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, and have urged the President to withdraw our troops as quickly as possible.”
