Interview Highlights

– Called President Obama’s foreign policy “mind-boggling” and it has caused “a genuine meltdown of American foreign policy across the boardYou name the country. Where are we in better shape now than we were when he came to office? Nowhere.”

– On President Obama’s veto threat of a defense authorization bill: “The mere threat to veto a defense bill with all we’ve seen going on in the world is truly astonishing and underscores what a left-wing president we have who continues to be hostile to the military as he reduces our influence around the world.”

– “Even the likely Democratic standard-bearer (Hillary Clinton) coming out against one of the principal accomplishments (Trans-Pacific Partnership) of a Democratic president tells you where the energy is in the Democratic Party today — it’s on the far left, and of course, the far left of the Democratic Party, these are people who are even to the left of Barack Obama, which is hard to imagine, hate trade agreements of any kind.”
