Obama's Foreign Policy Agenda Met with Tepid Applause at American Legion

President Obama received a tepid response from veterans as he voiced his foreign policy ideals during a speech at the American Legion’s 96th national convention in North Carolina.

Staring blankly at his teleprompter, Obama recited his speech, pausing for applause that never came.

Many of the veterans shown on camera during his speech made no effort to applause, instead watching the speech with arms folded.

Obama noted that although he authorized military air strikes in Iraq, removing American troops was the “right thing to do.”

Veterans were more responsive to Obama’s domestic agenda, applauding promises to fix the problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs and offer veterans more funding, housing, and health care.
