Bernie Sanders Lays Out Progressive Foreign Policy Vision

In major address, potential 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders calls out "disastrous" war on terror

After months of aggressively rallying support for domestic objectives like Medicare for Allunion rights, and a $15 minimum wage,  Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a speech on Thursday turned his attention to American foreign policy and the so-called war on terror, which he says has been a "disaster" for the world and for the United States.

The address covered a wide range of topics—from the history of U.S. interventionism to the threats posed by climate change and nuclear proliferation—and called for an "expansive" view of foreign policy that encompasses such issues as global inequality, the power of multinational corporations, and the rise of racist movements in the United States and abroad.

"Foreign policy is about whether we continue to champion the values of freedom, democracy, and justice, values which have been a beacon of hope for people throughout the world, or whether we support undemocratic, repressive regimes, which torture, jail, and deny basic rights to their citizens," Sanders said.
