On the Tuesday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz spoke with Chad Hasty about foreign policy and other national issues.

Last week, Cruz wrote a bill preventing the Iranian United Nations ambassador, or any UN representative that has committed terrorist acts against the United States, from entering the country. The bill passed both the House and the Senate unanimously, and was signed into law by President Obama on Friday. Cruz said that he was pleased to see all members of Congress and the President finally united on an important issue of national security.

But on the other hand, Cruz added that the White House continues to flounder when it comes to Russia and Ukraine. He said that the Obama administration’s foreign policy is naive and weak, and nations like Russia are clearly taking advantage of that.

“The trouble is bullies and tyrants don’t respect weakness. Putin is, essentially, a KGB thug. And nobody advocates military conflict with Russia. But there are a host of things we can and should be doing, short of military conflict, to stand by our allies and to increase the consequences of Putin’s aggressiveness and acts of war.”

Cruz added that the U.S. needs to stop standing around trying to appease Putin and start being more influential in Eastern Europe,

Cruz also shared his thoughts on the conflict over Bundy Ranch in Nevada. He called the situation a perfect example of Washington’s contempt for the people they were elected to protect.
