Earlier this week, he called on President Barack Obama to cancel an upcoming state visit with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Scott Walker on Friday laid the entire seven years of Obama administration foreign policy at Hillary Clinton’s feet, hitting the Middle East, the attempted reset with Russian Federation and cyberattacks from China.
“It is up to our next president to correct the errors of our current one“.
“We need to stop micromanaging the military and broadcasting our limits to our enemies”, he claimed.
Hillary served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. He referred to as for bolstering the American army presence within the Pacific, pushing for extra free commerce and holding the Chinese language authorities accountable on human rights.
Rubio, whose speech emphasized China’s growing global influence, stressed the importance of ensuring that the communist country’s economic prominence “doesn’t undermine American interests”.
The visit, Rubio said, should not be canceled, “but I also do not believe we should roll out the red carpet for him“.
Once considered a potential party frontrunner, he’s expected to talk about foreign policy and the state of his presidential campaign.
Previewing his China speech in an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal, Rubio argued that the United States has chosen to “appease” a China that is as much foe as friend.
“Once you’re within the early phases of the first season, and you do not have quite a bit in the best way of overseas coverage bona fides, a surefire applause line is to go to the acute – and within the case of China that is all the time an easy factor to do”, stated Jon Huntsman, a former Republican governor of Utah and USA ambassador to China underneath Obama. She has detailed what she would like to do on the foreign policy front if elected.
“Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups”.
The governor will say the two feed off each other and grow stronger, while the United States acts like a “passive spectator”.
Walker, who has stepped up his criticisms of Clinton in recent weeks as he seeks to reinvigorate his fading standing in the polls, has struggled with foreign policy in the past.
In order to protect America from external terrorist threats, Walker said, “We must secure the border at any cost”.
But, he said, the effort “must be part of a broader, U.S.-led, regional coalition, with real buy-in and ironclad guarantees from our allies that they will help us shoulder the burden”. “Everywhere in the world Hillary Clinton has touched is more messed up now than before she and the President took office”.
In addition to his “insufficient responses to economic and national security concerns”, the Republican senator wrote, Obama has “ignored” the Chinese government’s mass arrests of human rights advocates, the oppression of religious minorities, the tight controls on citizens’ access to the Internet and detention of political dissidents. “I will do all I can to empower Chinese citizens to breach what has been called the Great Firewall of China, and gain access to news and information online about their country and the world”, he said.
So what is our governor offering the nation as a presidential candidate?
