Ted Strickland Statement on Portman, NATO and Trump

In response to a new report this morning that Senator Rob Portman refused to condemn Trump’s comments that the United States should not defend NATO allies, Ted Strickland issued the following statement:

“Our NATO alliance and other alliances around the world are critical to protecting America, keeping us safe and providing stability and security in the world. This is a clear and disturbing demonstration of how Senator Portman’s refusal to stand up to Trump’s dangerous foreign policy ideas jeopardizes America’s safety. Over the week of the RNC Portman’s support for Trump seems to only be escalating -- but if Portman can’t stand up to Trump like Governor Kasich has, Portman can’t be trusted to stand up for Ohio”
