Lankford Opposes Returning to Weak Foreign Policy Strategy, Opposes Secretary of State Nominee

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) issued the following statement after he opposed the confirmation of Mr. Antony Blinken to serve as the Secretary of State:

“I strongly oppose Tony Blinken’s nomination for Secretary of State because he brings the same failed foreign policy strategy from a decade ago that put us in a weak position with nations like Iran, China, Russia, North Korea, and other bad actors. As we confront a rise in cyber threats, election tampering by foreign adversaries, increased nuclear proliferation, and numerous human rights violations in these nations, I believe now more than ever we need to approach our foreign policy from a position of strength and decisive leadership, not go backwards toward appeasement. Our foreign policy should affirm American values and America’s unique place of leadership in the world.”
