Marco Rubio

Council on Foreign Relations foreign policy speech

14 May, 2015

Rubio lays out his foreign policy vision in his talk at the Council on Foreign Relations. He criticizes Obama and calls for bigger military budget. He also wants America to take a more aggressive stance across the globe.

American strength is a means of preventing war, not promoting it…Sadly, I believe President Obama often disagrees with that simple truth. He entered office believing America was too hard on our adversaries, too engaged in too many places, and that if we just took a step back and did some more ‘nation building at home– ceding leadership to other countries — America would be better liked and the world better off.
