Our Role in the Western Hemisphere

Our Role in the Western Hemisphere

America has a unique role in the Western Hemisphere. We must stand for personal, political, religious and economic freedom, and not turn a blind eye to the torture, abuse, and oppression in Cuba and Venezuela.

I will work to continue holding the Castro regime accountable for their crimes over the last 60 years, and to demand the liberation of the Cuban people from their oppressive and violent regime. In Venezuela, the scope of the suffering from the Maduro regime must be ended and its people liberated. A free Latin America can be a partner in trade and security, but not until we rid this hemisphere of dictatorship.

We must help Puerto Rico reform the programs and policies that have led it to the current debt crisis, and help it become the hub of manufacturing, technology, and prosperity its educated, talented, and entrepreneurial people deserves.
