Jane Timken on Foreign Policy



China is the greatest foreign threat facing the US

China is the greatest foreign threat facing the United States. While Barack Obama and Joe Biden bowed to China, President Trump had what it took to stand up to the Communist regime and fight for American workers. We need leaders who will hold China accountable for their theft of intellectual property and American jobs, their persecution of Christians and religious minorities, and for their lies and incompetence that unleashed the coronavirus and brought the entire world economy to the brink.

I am proud to stand with the Israeli nation

Israel is a strong, reliable, and trusted ally of the United States and I am proud to stand with the Israeli nation in support of its sovereignty over its rightful territory, regions, and people. I stand with the Israeli nation in believing Jerusalem is the historic, current, and future capital. The United States and Israel have a long history of mutual cooperation and trade built on a strong foundation of shared Judeo-Christian values and as U.S. Senator, I will always protect this alliance.

Advocates strong and public support for Israel

Israel has a right to defend itself and America must stand resolute with Israel against these terrorist attacks. Where is Joe Biden and Democratic leadership? I am praying for peace and will always #standwithIsrael.

I will always work to advance policies that weaken Iran

America--and Israel--cannot afford Biden being wrong again when it comes to rejoining the Iran Nuclear Agreement. An Iran armed with nuclear weapons would pose an unacceptable danger to Israel and the United States. We must continue a policy that prevents Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and holds them accountable for their support of terrorism. As a U.S. Senator, I will always work to advance policies that weaken Iran, not embolden them.

Stand up for Israel, Iran is a threat to Israel and US

I've had several conversations with folks in the Jewish community. They're very concerned about Iran. They want to make sure that Israel is protected as our number one ally in the Middle East. We need to stand up for our ally, Israel, and, I'm very concerned about the Biden's administration's approach to Iran. We cannot have Iran develop nuclear capabilities. It is a threat to Israel, our ally, and is a threat to the United States's security.

BDS movement antisemitic, would push back with legislation

We really need to push back on the BDS movement. That is a leftist policy that is antisemitic, and I see it on college campuses, I see it in their dialogue and rhetoric, and I will stand up and push back against that because I think it's leading to some real disastrous effects. I think there's some things we can do in terms of college campuses, how these movements are being pushed on to college campuses, that I'd like to get some legislation passed to push back on that.

Abraham Accords have been a significant development

I absolutely applaud President Trump's approach to our foreign policy in the Middle East. I was very proud when he moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as had been promised by several presidents before. And the Abraham Accords have been a significant development in the Middle East. Look, it's peace through strength. He has stood up for Israel, and I will always do that as the next United States senator. We need to make sure that Israel is protected.
