Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Wednesday that America should be building roads and bridges in America, not Afghanistan.
“I’m tired of spending $50 billion a year in Afghanistan building roads and bridges over there where I would rather build roads and bridges here,” Paul told Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House during a wide-ranging interview that included President Donald Trump’s push to advance an America First foreign policy,
The Kentucky Republican contended that President Trump “truly believes in America First foreign policy,” however, he warned that some of his advisors have advocated against his foreign policy vision.
It usually ends with a settlement, and in Afghanistan, there needs to be a settlement,” Paul added.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who holds similar America First foreign policy views to Sen. Paul, told Breitbart News in an interview in April 2017 that America has spent well over $100 billion in Afghanistan rebuilding their infrastructure where that money could be better spent rebuilding American infrastructure.
