Evan McMullin on Foreign Policy
Conservative independent challenger
Evan McMullin: Yes
McMullin: How have we gotten to the point where we're considering electing a President who is being played and manipulated by a former KGB officer?
Q: Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is a former KGB officer; haven't we had enough of that with Barack Obama?
McMullin: Absolutely. Not being strong enough with the Russians and Putin. This is the thing: Donald Trump, he fancies himself one of the world's best negotiators and that might allow him to do some branding deals. But that does not mean that he is sophisticated enough to go head to head with a former KGB officer. Putin, as the leader of Russia, presents a challenge to democracy and liberty across the country, across the world. Instability, even. His goal is to destabilize Europe and he's had some successes there. Obviously, in Ukraine, he's used force even to do it and his goal is to do the same thing in the United States, and Donald Trump is helping him do that.
More recently, he served as a Senior Advisor on national security issues with the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the U.S. House of Representatives, and he's currently the Chief Policy Director with the House Republican Conference.
This spring, he came to campus to share his wealth of experience in conservative politics and unique insights into the past, present, and future of the Republican party.
"Free markets and liberal democracies don't just happen on their own; they require the support and leadership of powerful nations. It is our responsibility to be a force for good in the world," he asserted.
