Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is providing rapid response, after President Obama made disparaging remarks about Walker’s potential foreign policy.

“President Obama’s failed leadership has put him at odds with many across the country, including members of his own party, and key allies around the world,” Walker says. “Americans would be better served by a president who spent more time working with governors and members of Congress rather than attacking them.”

President Obama appeared on NPR’s Morning Edition with host Steve Inskeep and took a jab at Walker, a potential GOP presidential candidate, and his statements on the Iran deal.

Obama called Walker’s position on Iran a “foolish approach” and Obama added that Walker should “bone up on foreign policy.”

But Walker responded to the jab adding, “Whether it is cutting a bad deal with Iran, calling ISIS the JV squad, or touting Yemen as a success story, Obama’s lack of leadership has hurt America’s safety and standing in the world.”
