As your commander-in-chief, I will work to end the new cold war, and lead us away from the abyss of a nuclear war that could destroy our world in mere minutes.
I will build partnerships with other nations based on shared interests, leading with a foreign policy based not on conflict but on cooperation.
I will end the regime change wars that have taken far too many lives, cost trillions of dollars, and and undermined our security by strengthening terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS.
