Steve and Soumi break out the second episode in a semi-regular series of deep dives into the 2020 U.S. presidential candidates’ foreign policy beliefs, histories, and plans for the most powerful country in the world... 'Merica!
Second up: Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Four years ago, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders burst onto the national political stage and pushed the Democratic party to grapple with its sizable population of progressive voters. While much of Bernie’s appeal is about domestic policies, (e.g. he wants billionaires and other fat cats to start paying their fair shore), what about his foreign policy?
Sanders wants to use the American military far less than any modern president…but says he’s not an isolationist.
He says he was against the ongoing war in Iraq…but that’s not so clear either.
What does he believe? What informs his foreign policy views?
This week, we’ll talk about Bernie’s views on alliances, treaties, international organizations, how and when to use the massive American military, and much, much more!
Please rate and review!
