Cheney: Obama Does Not Believe That America Is Exceptional
Dick Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, authors of the new book "Exceptional: Why the World Needs a Powerful America," went "On the Record" tonight.
The former vice president said that American leaders have long believed in the idea that the U.S. has a role as the world's prime defender of freedom, until President Obama.
"He does not hold the view that America is the exceptional nation," Cheney said. "I don't think FDR, Harry Truman or Jack Kennedy or would recognize the foreign policy of a man like Barack Obama."
He pointed to the nuclear agreement with Iran as evidence of Obama's failed foreign policy.
"He is setting up a situation in which Iran will have a path to nuclear weapons, they're going to get over $100 billion, they're lifting the embargo on ballistic trade and on conventional weapons," Cheney said.
He added that with the Iran nuclear deal, Obama is also turning his back on U.S. allies in the region.
"He is setting up a situation that significantly enhances the threat and the danger to our friends and allies in the region."
