Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was interviewed by NBC’s  “Meet the Press” last week while the program covered his humanitarian mission in Guatemala performing eye surgeries on citizens in need. Paul spoke about other issues as well, including police activity in Ferguson, MO and the 2016 presidential election. Paul expressed concern that former Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton may frustrate the American public by pushing the United States into more wars if elected.

Paul said that he felt many Americans are growing tired of military interventions as he illustrated a scenario of a Paul-vs-Clinton presidential election:

“I think the American public is coming more and more to where I am, and that those people like Hillary Clinton who- she fought her own war, ‘Hillary’s War’, you know people are gonna find that. And I think that’s what scares the Democrats the most- is that in a general election, were I to run, there’s going to be a lot of independents and even some Democrats who say ‘You know what, we are tired of war. We’re worried that Hillary Clinton will get us involved in another Middle Eastern war, because she’s so gung-ho.'”

The segment cut to Paul continuing “If you want to see a transformational election in our country, let the Democrats put forward a war hawk like Hillary Clinton, and you’ll see a transformation like you’ve never seen.”

Paul has been a voice of criticism regarding military intervention, particularly in Syria, while Clinton has been a proponent of taking more military action. The two potential candidates clearly have differing views of the United States concerning their role in foreign policy.

Before criticizing Clinton, Paul, while stating that he would provide no judgement of the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, once again condemned the militarization of police in the United States:

“When I see things like that and I see, like, a war zone, and I see bazookas and tanks and all of this stuff in American city- it offends me because many of these people, some are rioting, and they need to be arrested,” he said. “If you’re committing a crime, arrest people. But if you’re standing up and you want to voice dissent, you know it is really what America is about is being able to dissent.”

Paul pointed out that “Homeland Security gave $8 million dollars to Fargo to fight terrorism in Fargo, North Dakota. And I say if the terrorists get to Fargo we might as well give up. I say that as a joke, but I mean it’s like what are you doing spending 8 million dollars in Fargo? What are we doing sending a tank- there’s an armored personnel carrier in Keene, New Hampshire.”
