Our purpose is to make sure the world is peaceful. We want a peaceful planet, we want people to enjoy their lives and know they're going to have a bright and prosperous future and not be at war. That's our purpose. And the mantle of leadership for the promoting the principles of peace has fallen to America. We didn't ask for it, but it's an honour we have it.
They're taking jobs. They're stealing our intellectual property, our patents, our designs, our technology, hacking into our computers, counterfeiting our goods.
Our military is second to none in the world. We're blessed with terrific soldiers, and extraordinary technology and intelligence. But the idea of a trillion dollars in cuts through sequestration and budget cuts to the military would change that.
Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I'm not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia, or Mr. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin. And I'm certainly not going to say to him, I'll give you more flexibility after the election. After the election, he'll get more backbone.
Well, they sell us about this much stuff every year. And we sell them about this much stuff every year. So it's pretty clear who doesn't want a trade war. And there's one going on right now that we don't know about. It's a silent one and they're winning.
Number two, with regards to Iran and the threat of Iran, there's no question but that a nuclear Iran, a nuclear-capable Iran, is unacceptable to America.
When I'm president of the United States, we will stand with Israel. And, and if Israel is attacked, we have their back, not just diplomatically, not just culturally, but militarily. That's number one.
Let me also note that the greatest threat that the world faces, the greatest national security threat, is a nuclear Iran. Let's talk about China.
Syria is Iran's only ally in the Arab world. It's their route to the sea.
I look at what's happening around the world and I see Iran four years closer to a bomb. I see the Middle East with a rising tide of violence, chaos, tumult. I see jihadists continuing to spread.
You said that on occasion America had dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.
The president mentioned the auto industry and that somehow I would be favor of jobs being elsewhere. Nothing could be further from the truth. I am a son of Detroit. I was born in Detroit. My dad was head of a car company. I like American cars. And I would do nothing to hurt the U.S. auto industry.
This is a critical opportunity for America. And what Im afraid of is weve watched over the past year or so, first the president saying, Well well let the U.N. deal with it.
We get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years. We do it by reducing spending in a whole series of programs. By the way, number one I get rid of is Obamacare.
I want a great relationship with China. China can be our partner, but that doesnt mean that they can just roll all over us and steal are jobs on an unfair basis.
I would also make sure that their diplomats are treated like the pariahs they are around the world, the same way we treated the apartheid diplomats of South Africa. We need to increase pressure time and time again on Iran because anything other than a solution to this which stops this nuclear folly of theirs, is unacceptable to America. And of course, a military action is the last resort.
I congratulate him on taking out Osama bin Laden and going after the leadership in Al Qaeda, but we cant kill our way out of this mess.
I have clear eyes on this. Im not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin and Im certainly not going to say to him, Ill give you more flexibility after the election. After the election, hell get more backbone.
We dont want another Iraq. We dont want another Afghanistan. Thats not the right course for us.
Mr. President, the reason I call it an apology tour is because you went to the Middle East, and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And by the way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region. And by the way, they noticed that you skipped Israel.
