May 14th, 2015 • iizthatiiz

Senator Marco Rubio laid out his foreign policy doctrine in a speech before the ‘Council On Foreign Relations’.

Marco Rubio staked a claim to being the Republican presidential field’s toughest — and most qualified — candidate on national security, capping a four-year effort to cultivate expertise in an area of top concern for GOP voters.

Rubio alleged that President Barack Obama has flinched from a dangerous world and argued for “American strength [as] a means of preventing war, not promoting it.” (Politico)

Rubio defined ‘Three Pillars’ in his remarks:

  • American Strength
  • Protection of the American economy in a globalized world
  • Moral clarity regarding America’s core values
