Mitt Romney gave his first speech on the Senate floor, defending the international alliances that have come under attack by President Trump, The Hill reports.
Said Romney: “Alliances are absolutely essential to America’s security, to our future, I can’t state that more plainly. We need to hold our friends closer not neglect them or drive them away.”
He added that such alliances are key to countering China, since the U.S. has “many friends” but “China has very few.”
Washington Post: “Romney did not mention Trump by name in what was his first major address since joining the Senate in January, but his remarks amounted to a gentle rebuke of some of the president’s foreign policy priorities as Trump was in the midst of a trip to Europe.”Save to Favorites
