Walker: Rand Paul Is 'Wrong' About ISIS
On "Your World" today, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker reacted to the claims made by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) about ISIS being created by GOP "hawks."
Paul blamed his own party for the rise of the Islamic State group on MSNBC yesterday.
“ISIS exists and grew stronger because of the hawks in our party who gave arms indiscriminately,” Paul said on “Morning Joe.” “They created these people. ISIS is all over Libya because these same hawks in my party loved – they loved Hillary Clinton’s war in Libya. They just wanted more of it.”
Walker told Neil Cavuto that Paul is "wrong" about ISIS.
"I just respectfully disagree with Senator Paul," Walker said. "I believe the reason that we're facing troubles in not only that region, but around the world is because of the lack of American leadership."
Walker said that the lack of American leadership can be seen with what's happening in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Ukraine and China.
"I think there's a consistent theme around the world and that is people who are friends or foe look around and they see an absence...not just under the Obama doctrine, but largely under the Obama-Clinton doctrine," he said.
Walker stated that leadership needs to be established in the world again.
He added that he respects Paul and thinks there are "a lot of good things about him."
