O'Rourke on Face the Nation


It’s because this president has turned his back on our allies and our friends. He’s with- withdrawn from the agreements that were negotiated in previous administrations. We are the one country who is trying to exempt itself from the Paris climate accords despite our ability of- to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the Iran nuclear situation, we’ve now withdrawn from that ensuring that allies and partners no longer trust us as we go into other challenging otherwise intractable situations. And so the next president needs to bring close those allies and friends those alliances that were so often forged in sacrifice to make sure that we can meet the next challenges whether it is climate change or nuclear nonproliferation or ensuring that we hold China accountable for what they have done to violate the international rules of trade.
