Obama’s Absentee Foreign Affairs Leadership

Obama’s Absentee Foreign Affairs Leadership

As Russian troops roll into Ukraine, President Obama’s feckless and absentee leadership on the global stage is an American embarrassment and as President, his actions increasingly endanger the safety and security of all Americans.
