I believe the main and most basic function of the Federal Government is to protect our people. As such, our military must always be prepared for whatever comes our way but with the mindset that putting our men and woman into battle is always the last resort.
- Military Readiness: Our military leaders must never be left without the vital resources they need to keep us safe and effectively deter war.
- Destruction of Non-State Terrorist Organizations: The scourge of Jihadi terror is a scourge that affects the entire civilized world, and all nations must be committed to its ultimate defeat.
- Non-Nuclear Aggressors: I support President Trump’s efforts to renegotiate the Iran Nuclear Deal, strengthening the sunset clauses in that deal in order to gain full confidence that no path exists for Iran to acquire a nuclear warhead. In North Korea, I support our continued efforts to explore all viable options to disrupting North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.
