Mitt Romney on Sunday slammed Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration’s approach to foreign policy.
The former Massachusetts governor said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that most of the blame for the unrest in Iraq lies with the Iraqi government, but said that failed U.S. foreign policy contributed to the country’s deterioration.
“The United States of America has long had the capacity to shape events and to influence events. But what you’ve seen from this administration, whether from Hillary Clinton, with the reset button to Russia — which, by the way, should have been called the repeat button — this administration from Secretary Clinton to President Obama has repeatedly underestimated the threats that are faced by America, has repeatedly underestimated our adversaries,” he said. “Whether that’s Russia, or Assad, or ISIS, or al Qaeda itself, it has not taken the action necessary to prevent bad things from happening. It has not used our influence to protect our interests.”
