Roy Blunt: Friends no longer trust us; our enemies aren't afraid of us

Q: What are the most important challenges facing the U.S. in foreign relations?

Roy Blunt: After eight years of the Obama administration's failed foreign policy agenda, our friends no longer trust us and our enemies aren't afraid of us in a world that is more dangerous than it has ever been. Whether it's the Iran deal, the rise of ISIS or Russian aggression, a strong United States is the only answer to counter the growing threats we face.
