Pete: America & the World: National Security for a New Era -Video of his Foreign Policy speech today

The program starts at 24:00. Pete comes on at 35:45




Pete Buttigieg just gave his first foreign policy speech. He offered 5 clear proposals.

Pete Buttigieg is the first Democratic presidential candidate to actually articulate foreign policy proposals beyond general themes and ideas.

In a high-profile address on Tuesday at Indiana University, the South Bend mayor used the opportunity to lay out his worldview, hewing closely to progressive tentpoles like combating climate change, challenging authoritarianism, and renewing America’s economy. That put him in the same company as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who have released like-minded visions.

What separated Buttigieg from that crowd, though, is that he put some meat on the conceptual progressive skeleton. Specifically, he said he would:

“Repeal and replace” the 2001 congressional authorization that the US military still uses to this day to fight terrorism and engage in foreign wars around the world

Recommit the US to the Iran nuclear deal

Withhold some US taxpayer money from Israel if it annexes parts of the West Bank

Rejoin the Paris climate accord

Increase investment in renewable technologies to reverse environmental degradation

“Not only must America do this in order to prosper,” Buttigieg told the friendly crowd, “but the world also needs America to do these things.”
