Foreign Policy

Opposes a near-term military strike on Iran by the U.S. or Israel to sabotage facilities that could be misused to produce a nuclear weapon. Declined to repeat the Libya air power commitment for Syria opposition, seeking instead to build international consensus toward the goal of persuading President Bashar Assad to leave and to press Russia and China from shielding the Syrian government from international sanctions. Opposes calling China a currency manipulator, bringing unfair-trade cases against China to the World Trade Organization.
