Smith Statement on Donald Trump’s Disastrous Foreign Policy Statements

Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s recent comments regarding foreign policy:

“Trump flies by the seat of his pants and nowhere is it more clear how dangerous that trait is than his flirtation with disastrous foreign policy ideas.

“His invitation to Russia to engage in cybercrime against a presidential candidate is a disqualifying remark for anyone seeking the presidency. His admiration of Putin has gone too far.

“A foreign power should never intrude in an American election or on our political process. How would any partner, ally, friend, or foe trust Trump or his foreign policy when he is so willing to ignore the fundamental values that are the bedrock of our nation? We have fought for these values throughout our nation’s history for which millions of Americans have lost their lives. Trump is a recipe for a disaster.”
