I also discussed how Russia is challenging this world order, and defended the need for a free press in our democratic society. Watch my full interview below.

Today I spoke at the annual Munich Security Conference on the future of the West and liberal world order that was forged out of the ashes of WWII.

Make no mistake, my friends: These are dangerous times, but you should not count America out and we should not count each other out. I am a proud, unapologetic believer in the West and I believe we must always, always stand up for it — for if we...

Today, I addressed the Munich Security Conference on the many challenges facing the United States and Europe:

We come to Munich, year in and year out — to revitalize our common moral purpose, our belief that our values are worth the fighting for. Because in the final analysis, the survival of the West is not just a material struggle; it is now, and has always been, a moral struggle.

Today I had an excellent meeting with Judge Neil Gorsuch - a great choice for Supreme Court Justice. Based on our conversation, and as demonstrated by his impressive legal record, it is clear that Judge Gorsuch has deep respect for the limited role of the federal judiciary and its obligation to uphold our Constitution. Judge Gorsuch has my full support & I look forward to the Senate’s timely...

“U.S. forces could fair poorly in the next war they are called upon to fight…”

David Ochmanek, Senior Defense Research Analyst at the RAND Corporation, delivered sobering remarks at today’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, warning the risk is growing that our nation’s military could lose the next war it is called upon to fight.

In order to sustain and advance America’s military...

On The Resignation Of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn
Vladimir Kara-Murza and all who risk their lives to free Russia from tyranny and corruption are our allies…they are our moral equals.

And the president of the United States, the nation that has been the greatest force for good in human history, should be the first among us to recognize that!

Trump gets it backwards on Putin's Russia
In this week's edition of "3 Questions," I discuss I am Jane Doe Film, my mother Roberta's 105th birthday celebration & Gen. John Nicholson's assessment before the Senate Armed Services Committee that we are in a "stalemate" in Afghanistan. Make sure to ask me your questions for next week's video in the comments below.
My friend Vladimir Kara-Murza has lived a life that reflects the very best qualities of leadership - courage, selflessness, idealism & patriotism. Like Boris Nemtsov, Sergei Magnitsky & many other brave Russians, he has risked his life defying Putin’s tyranny. I offer my most heartfelt prayers for his recovery.
Last night, I was honored to support I am Jane Doe Film & help raise awareness of Backpage dot com's horrific, illegal facilitation of human trafficking - watch the trailer of this powerful film here: [ Link ]
Happy 105th birthday to my wonderful mother Roberta - we love you mom!
I am heartbroken by the news that Vladimir Kara-Murza, my dear friend and a true Russian patriot, has been hospitalized in Moscow after showing identical symptoms to those he experienced two years ago under suspicious circumstances. Vladimir has been a leading voice for freedom, human rights and the rule of law in Putin’s Russia. And he has continued to speak truth to power even when doing so...

I'm confident Judge Neil Gorsuch will bring strict interpretation of the Constitution & I look forward to his confirmation and rapid assignment to the United States Supreme Court.
Watch my full interview on Morning Joe this morning discussing the President's first actions in office, including reports of an executive order directing a review of enhanced interrogation policies.

The President can sign whatever executive orders he likes. But the law is the law. We are not bringing back torture to the United States. On June 16, 2015, the United States Senate voted 78-21 to...

The President-elect has said he wants to "fully eliminate the defense sequester" and "rebuild the military." I could not agree more. My new report lays out a plan to repair, rebuild, and reimagine the military for a wide range of threats facing our nation: [ Link ]
Today, I asked General Mattis, nominee to be our next Secretary of Defense, whether budget cuts to the military are putting the lives of our service members at risk, and what the United States should do in the face of Russian aggression. Watch our full exchange.
I'm chairing the confirmation hearing for General James Mattis to be our next Secretary of Defense this morning. Gen. Mattis has a clear understanding of the many challenges facing the Department of Defense, the U.S. military, and our national security. I look forward to hearing about his vision to rebuild our Armed Forces, reform the Department of Defense, and confront a variety of threats...
