Cites ISIS fears

Gives Talk

Rubio cites fears of ISIS as reasons to protect gun rights for Americans and promises to maintain a broad interpretation of the 2nd Amendment if elected president. While speaking to a crowd of approximately 600 in Iowa, he warned that the Obama administration is coming to confiscate Americans guns and leave them defenseless:

My attorney general is not going to be someone that comes to my office to conspire about how to take away your guns. My attorney general is going to be someone that defends your second amendment right to protect your family, your homes, your business and your property. Because, if God forbid ISIS pays a visit to you, to our community, the last thing standing between them and our families may be the ability to protect ourselves with our guns. And there’s no way we’re going to take that away from the American people, not when I’m president.

Council on Foreign Relations foreign policy speech

Gives Talk

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.
