I support a strong, defensive military. It is long past time to bring the troops home, close the bases abroad at a time when our air power and naval power can react defensively from U.S. Soil, including transporting troops if necessary to truly act defensively, and at the same time save the precious lives of our armed men and women. If we end the war on drugs, we will also help enable treatment for our combat veterans, many of whom come home broken, with a broken VA system. I also believe in looking at free-market solutions to providing the best care to injured veterans.

I will support legislation to protect our election process from foreign interference, legislation that Sen. McConnell single-handedly blocked for months.

The goal now should be to bring back the kind of limitations on Iran’s nuclear program that existed in the last administration’s “Iran deal” but to extend them indefinitely, in exchange for a lifting of the relevant sanctions on Iran.

We need to work to develop areas that serve as breeding grounds for extremists. Developing disadvantaged areas, where young citizens have few options and deep frustrations, means pressing states and leaders to develop the institutions and mechanisms that develop good governance, electoral legitimacy, and open the doors to include more perspectives and voices in government.

The survival and security of Israel is in the United States’ interest and a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is fundamental to Israel’s security.

We must strengthen our role in the NATO alliance. t the same time, we must think practically about the benefits and drawbacks to an eastern expansion of NATO.

Afghanistan will never be a Jeffersonian democracy, but we can define success by protecting the American homeland while helping to expand the Afghan government’s capacity. We can do that with a small presence in Afghanistan for a few continued years.

The U.S. should only be allowed to pursue jihadists around the globe after the Director of National Intelligence certifies that they are connected, organizationally or doctrinally, to al-Qaeda and ISIS.

I will make sure Congress doesn’t change the law (or make the law unenforceable) that stops payday lenders from fleecing our enlisted personnel right outside the gates of military bases.

The only way to realistically counteract ISIS, jihadist groups, and terrorism writ large is through a combination of force (when needed), and by empowering local leaders—particularly women leaders and the families and networks that they represent—to address challenges and find solutions.

It is critical that the approach to North Korean nuclear progress should be a rest of the world vs. North Korea, not just a U.S. vs. North Korea. We need a multi-national approach and should be developing such an option today.

I support current efforts at trade agreements, not trade wars, because these agreements give us leverage and a common goal, and can foster stable relations.
