“America is weaker than it’s ever been” in over fifty years, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Rob Maness, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Louisiana, tells Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon.
“For over fifty years, we’ve been strong, we’ve been leading in the world and we’re now weaker than we’ve ever been before,” he said, adding, “We’re under attack around the world, including in our own country.”
Maness accused Obama of waging an illegal war in Syria and leaving America over-extended in Afghanistan. “We’re being challenged by the Russians in Europe. We’re being challenged by the Chinese and the North Koreans, of all states, in the Pacific and we’re spending more than any country in the world, several times over, on our national defense but they see us as politically weak, lacking courage and not leading in the world. Our allies can’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear or respect us,” he concluded.
Maness made a point of saying, “When Mr. Trump gets elected … he will bring all sorts of clarity. I like the way he speaks …,” calling critics like Bill Kristol “old school,” adding “they need to go and they need to stop whining and, quite frankly, they need to get on board with the Republican nominee.” Maness said he’s had to back a number of republican nominees he may not have liked “for decades,” and it’s time to get on board with Mr. Trump. I’m going to vote for him,” Maness added.
There’s more on Maness available on his campaign website.
