Voters Celebrate Trump’s Foreign Policy: ‘Finally Got Somebody With Some Balls’

BY:

Voters in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, told CNN’s Martin Savidge that they were ready to vote for President Donald Trump again thanks to his strong foreign policy.

They expressed satisfaction with Trump’s foreign policy, from pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal to moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"How are you feeling?" Savidge asked Ron Farster, a trucker who voted for Trump.

"Great," Farster replied. "Finally got somebody with some balls."

"Everybody's taken advantage of the United States," Farster added. "We've always been too easy and gave them what they wanted."

Brian Klingensmith said the Iran nuclear deal was the product of trusting rogue regimes too much.

"There were some bad deals made and, you know, you can't trust all these regimes that are out there," he said. "You know, think he's doing what he thinks he right."

Retired Air Force veteran Dan Wagner said Trump is becoming his favorite president from a foreign policy standpoint because he puts pressure on other countries.

"Reagan used to be because, what he did, he told [Soviet leader Mikhail] Gorbachev, ‘Tear down this wall.’ Trump's more, ‘You don't, I'm going to smack you.’ And that's what the world needs," Wagner said.

One resident said Trump seemed too reckless, but Dawn Piper thought the opposite. She said America's national defense benefits from enemies not knowing what the next offensive move is.

Chris Tolliver said Trump sometimes "comes across a little harsh" and may cause conflicts with other countries, but it’s probably because he’s saying what others are thinking.

"That does worry me a little bit, the war part of it," Tolliver said. "He does come across a little harsh sometimes, but like I said, he says what everyone else was probably thinking, you know?"
