Seth Moulton on Foreign Policy



Visit our allies, whom President Trump has abandoned

Moulton said it was time to "abandon nation building in Afghanistan" and criticized President Trump for spurning "our friends and allies across the globe."

Q: Where would you go on your first international trip as president?

A: "I would go to some of our allies that President Trump has abandoned."

America leads the world when it is strong

There are a lot of dangers we face around the globe because we have a weak commander-in-chief in Donald Trump. And that's why in this race I'm taking him on, not just as president, but as commander-in-chief. We've got to start talking about how we can make America safe and strong, from our communities to our borders to across the globe, to restoring American leadership. And you do that through strength, you do that by showing how America will make the world stronger and safer together.

Build a Pacific NATO & rebuild existing alliances

Over the last couple years, this administration has turned its back on our friends and cozied up to our adversaries. Donald Trump's erratic foreign policy has weakened the country, left our allies in the lurch, and emboldened our adversaries across the globe. That needs to change in 2020.

But to restore strong American leadership, we need to use all the tools at our disposal--from foreign aid to new alliances to diplomacy--not just the military. We should build new alliances, like a Pacific NATO, to counter the growing threats of Russia and China abroad. And we need to take care of those who take care of us, whether it's an ally in the Paris Climate Accord or the veterans who fight our wars.

Our troops deserve it and our national security demands it.
