Klobuchar vows to renew US leadership around the world

Senator Amy Klobuchar called the fallout from the killing of a top Iranian general by a US drone strike “a very precarious situation” for the country and vowed to renew American leadership and alliances around the world if she wins the White House.

“It does seem like a disproportionate response, it seems like something that they did not think through in terms of the repercussions,” the Minnesota Democrat said of the situation with Iran during an interview with The Boston Globe editorial board Monday. She said she plans to attend the briefing the White House is setting up this week for Congress to learn more about the decision-making behind the killing.

“But I have obvious concerns about what happened here. Soleimani is clearly a bad person, a despicable person, but the fact that they would not have thought through this cascade of escalation that we’re seeing — I don’t know that they’re ready for it,” she said.

Klobuchar said as president she would push to reengage Iran in a multilateral deal, which she said might still be possible if America’s allies can do their best to maintain it until Trump is out of office.
