Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker laid out his vision for foreign policy and improving the economy, during a stop in Michigan on Monday.
At a luncheon in Lansing, Walker told members of the Ingham County Republican Party that the nation needs a stronger voice on foreign policy in the White House. Walker accused President Barack Obama, along with his former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, of not having a “very strong approach when it comes to the rest of the world.”
Walker was also critical of Obama and Clinton on the economy. “Obama and Clinton think you grow the economy by growing Washington,” Walker said. “I think the rest of us in this country believe that you grow the economy in cities and towns and villages all across America…that people create jobs, not the government.”
Walker, who has not yet officially announced he’s a candidate for president in 2016, was among three GOP contenders in Michigan on Monday. Dr. Ben Carson and Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) were also reaching out to voters, and each spoke at different events.
