Rubio: We ‘Cannot Afford’ Clinton ‘Soap Opera’

Senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-FL) argued “this country cannot afford another eight years of a soap opera” in reference to the Clintons on Wednesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.y

When asked if he would bring up Hillary Clinton’s honesty, he declared, “We don’t need any drama in the White House. At this incredible hinge moment in our history. You’re going to have a pack in the White House, two people who have been — everywhere they go, bring drama with them. This country cannot afford another eight years of a soap opera.”

Earlier, he said of Clinton, “Her policies, number one, in a global economy, would make us less globally competitive. You can’t raise taxes, increase regulations, grow your national debt, and expect to be able to compete with dozens of developed economies.”

Rubio also outlined his foreign policy platform, stating, “Well, there’s three things that should underline our foreign policy. The first is the acknowledgment that the world is a better place when America is the strongest country in the world and that’s why we need to increase our military spending, get rid of this horrible reductions that we’ve seen, and also our intelligence capabilities, they have to be robust. It is important that we re-authorize the Patriot Act. Second, is America’s foreign policy needs to keep in mind that, in the 21st century, global commerce matters more than ever. We cannot allow any nation on earth to control shipping lanes, airspace, the cyberspace, outer space for that matter. And the third is, our foreign policy should always be be built on our values as a nation. We support freedom. We support nations and people who aspire to democracy. We support human rights and their respect to human rights.”
