During the town hall, identified as a man, as Isaiah heard saying, “to The office of the President also has an amazing responsibility to the people outside of the United States, given the power and position, and now the United States, the bombing of at least seven countries.”

“We support the genocide in Palestine and in Yemen. The U.S. military is actually the largest polluter of any organization in the world, and we also work in more clandestine ways,” he said.

“The Columbia economist Jeffrey Sachs reported that between 2017 and 2018, with the United States sanctions against Venezuela caused over 40,000 deaths. And we also have penalties to many other countries, such as Iran, North Korea, and you can name many.


“So, I wonder, as President, stop the US-backed murder, be it through sanctions, the arms support or boots on the ground?”

Warren immediately responded and said, “So, I like your frame on this.”

“You know,” she continued, “here’s how I see it. [If] we want a great nation, lead the world, then we must live our values every day. And this does not mean that we support, for example, what happens in Yemen. The worst man-made humanitarian crisis in generations.”

Warren went on to say, “And yet we will continue to support the Saudis, as this war goes on and on and on. Children are dying, people are dying by the thousands, by the tens of thousands in this country. We need to say no to. We have to be ready to secure. We need to get our combat troops home.”

Nearly 100,000 people have been killed since 2015 as the Yemen war, has presented, according to information by the Armed conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED) this summer.

The United Nations for more than a year, declared it the “world’s worst humanitarian crisis.”

“A great nation in the fight against endless wars. We should not be in combat in Afghanistan, should we not fight in the Middle East. This is not where we should be,” Warren added, as the audience applauds.

She then went on to talk about foreign policy.

“We have military, we have a large military. We have people who have signed up to make the ultimate sacrifice. Their families sacrifice, to be there for them,” Warren said. “There are people who do what we ask them to do. But we should not ask questions, to solve our military,-military problems.”

“And the example is Afghanistan,” she added.

Warren went on to say, “The Afghan government controls less than 60 per cent of the land mass in Afghanistan after 16 years, our-and lose our own people and the loss of so many Afghans in him.”

She said that the poppy and heroin trade is bigger than ever.

Warren went on to say, “We need to think about our diplomatic tools, we need to understand a state Department, diplomats, people to the base, the language, the economy, local politics, we need to our economic tools.”

“We want a great nation, we got to know the difference between dictators and stop sucking up to dictators,” Warren said, as they continue to be the answer to Isaiah’s question on Monday. “And our allies, we should be a little more friendly to Canada, than we do to North Korea.”

“But for me, this is the core. We have got a country, are willing to, out there and recognize the value and dignity of being of every human. Working with our allies to try to make this a safer world.”


After a series of new studies from The New York Times conclusion and Siena College, Trump Warren but trails former Vice-President, Joe Biden, to decide in the battleground states most likely, whether he will win re-election, The Times reported on Monday.
