GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson is out with his foreign policy plan for “restoring America’s global leadership and rebuilding the military,” just two days ahead of the sixth GOP primary debate in South Carolina.
“The U.S. must lead from the front, promote peace and prosperity, and restore its role as the world’s preeminent leader,” reads Carson’s plan.
He outlines six principals he believes are needed for “for securing the United States and promoting peace and stability around the world:”
- Rearming the U.S. Military
- Renewing the National Security Establishment
- Revitalizing Critical Alliances
- Re-evaluating When to Put American Troops in Harms Way
- Restoring U.S. Global Leadership
- Reviving Economic Prosperity
“As Commander in Chief I will restore our military capabilities to levels fitting of our legacy as a world leader for peace and prosperity,” stated Carson. “I will ensure that our brave men and women in uniform are the best-trained and equipped military in the world, ready to respond to any threat to our national security. And I will hold as my highest obligation the preservation of our great nation and the ideals on which it was founded.”
Carson is releasing his plan 20 days before the Iowa caucus where Carson once topped the GOP field, but now is attempting to regain support.
