Senator Marco Rubio, a staunch supporter of Israel, has entered the 2016 presidential race vowing to bring America back to its world leadership role.

Senator Marco Rubio is a huge supporter of Israel. When Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu decided to address the US Congress, Rubio gave an impassioned speech, urging Congress to attend.

More recently, he has been critical of the way President Obama has treated Israel, calling that treatment “disgraceful.” It’s no surprise then, that during this speech he said that it was time for the US to accept once again “the mantle of global leadership” by abandoning “dangerous concessions to Iran and its hostility to Israel.”
