Michigan Republican Party statement on Obama’s failed foreign policy

LANSING, Mich., Dec. 29, 2016 – Michigan Republican Party Co-Chair Jeff Sakwa issued the following statement today regarding President Obama’s failed policies in regards to Israel:

“Once again, we have seen firsthand outgoing President Barack Obama’s disdain for Israel and her democracy being attacked. When Israel most needed their friend and ally, the United States turned its back, abstaining from a United Nations vote that leaves our friend vulnerable to attack. Coupled with the horrible Iran deal, we can see why it is so important that our President-elect Donald J. Trump won this election to avoid the continued disastrous Obama-Kerry foreign policy which has forged better relations with Iran and Cuba than Israel. We continue to get calls from Democrats, some Jewish and some not, who want to jump ship and support our friend Israel as part of the Republican Party.”
