National Security and Terrorism

The United States must remain a leader on the world stage and a beacon of hope. We need to work closely with our allies and other nations to find diplomatic solutions to threats to our national security and the security of other nations.

We need to support emerging democracies and speak out against repressive regimes and human rights abuses. We need to recognize that we live in a global economy and interconnected world and work with nations around the world to find solutions to our common problems.

We need smart and tough national security policies that will keep Americans safe. To defeat ISIS and prevent the spread of terrorism, we must continue to strengthen our international coalition and reaffirm our commitment to NATO, improve intelligence sharing with our allies, and strangle terrorist financial networks. We need to strengthen domestic intelligence sharing between local and Federal law enforcement agencies to identify threats before they strike.
