Foreign Affairs

American foreign policy must focus on promoting freedom throughout the world, and building dependable alliances around the world. While foreign aid is a strong tool to incentivize adherence to these values, our nation should never fund countries or organizations that act against our interests.

Our nation has built the largest economy and the strongest military ever known. We must always leverage that strength to accomplish our nation’s goal of fostering peace and free trade around the globe.
