Tom Steyer on War & Peace

Democratic Presidential Challenger; CEO


Withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan

He promises to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan in his first year in office. He has identified space as an arena "in which we compete with adversaries" and promises to support air force efforts in space.

He criticizes Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, arguing that it is increasing tensions in the region and pulling the US deeper into a "proxy war" in Syria. He opposed Trump's 2019 buildup of US troop levels in the Persian Gulf in the wake of increased tensions with Ira

Keep US troops in northern Syria

Steyer has been critical of U.S. support for Israel's security policies, especially its use of force in the Gaza Strip. He disagreed with Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is opposed by Palestinians.

He condemned Trump's withdrawal of U.S. troops from northern Syria, arguing that the mission there to help the Kurds contain the self-proclaimed Islamic State was successful. He says Trump "sold out" the United States "for the benefit of Vladimir Putin."

Trump foreign policy strategy is to react, not think

There is no Trump foreign policy. There is no thinking. There is only political posturing and impulsive reaction. Weak and dangerous.
