CLEVELAND ― America has fallen behind in global security during the Obama administration, and Hillary Clinton would only make things worse, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, said Monday night.
"For eight years, we've seen what happens when America leads from behind. Leading from behind—that's not what the Army taught me," Cotton said in prepared remarks at the Republican National Convention.
"We don't fight because we hate our enemies, but because we love our country. We love its freedom. We love that we're born equal and live free, that no one rules without consent," he said. "We know these things are worth fighting and dying for because they make life worth living for."
The GOP has repeatedly hit the Democrats on how they've dealt with terrorist organizations like the so-called Islamic State.
