Rubio on Hillary: 'This Country Can't Afford Another 8 Years of a Soap Opera'
On "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) explained what changes America's foreign policy needs and weighed in on the "drama" surrounding Hillary Clinton.
The GOP presidential contender told Bill O'Reilly that it needs to be acknowledged that "the world is a better place when America is the strongest country in the world."
For that to be achieved, Rubio said three changes need to be made to America's foreign policy.
He stated that military spending needs to be increased and not cut. He added that America's intelligence capabilities also need to be "robust," and that it's important to re-authorize the Patriot Act.
Rubio also said that global commerce matters more now than it ever has.
"We cannot allow any nation on Earth to control shipping lanes, air space, cyberspace, outer space for that matter," Rubio explained.
He stated that America's foreign policy should always be built on our values as a nation.
"We support freedom, we support nations and people who aspire to democracy, we support human rights," Rubio said.
O'Reilly asked Rubio where he thinks Hillary Clinton's campaign is the weakest.
"The proposals that she's going to come with are the same tired, left proposals that we have now," Rubio stated of Clinton's potential plan to fix the economy. "Her policies ... in a global economy, would make [America] less globally competitive."
O'Reilly asked if Rubio was going to attack her as being a "dishonest woman."
"We don't need any drama in the White House," Rubio replied. "At this incredible hinge moment in our history, you're going to put back into the White House, two people... who bring drama with them. This country can't afford another eight years of a soap opera."
