Sen. Cotton: Hillary Clinton’s Policies Would Have Emboldened Russia

‘Hillary Clinton was promising policy in the campaign that would have emboldened Russia and given them even more strategic advantage’

COTTON: "What we need with Vladimir Putin is a new sense of boundaries. We need to impose new boundaries and we need to impose costs when he crosses those boundaries. This is something that Ronald Reagan did. Ronald Reagan made the moral case against totalitarian communism in the Soviet Union. But he also did some fundamental things to change the strategic equation, like rebuilding the military, like deploying intermediate range missiles to Europe. Donald Trump promises to do those exact same things. In fact, he promised them in the campaign, to rebuild our military, to upgrade the arsenal, to build missile defenses. Hillary Clinton was the one promising policies in the campaign that actually would have emboldened Russia and given them even more strategic advantage."
