Obama’s Policy Toward Russia Is Ineffective

“I think one of the reasons Putin is in eastern Ukraine and Crimea is that he doesn’t respect this White House, he doesn’t respect Obama’s foreign policy,” Jindal said.

Jindal also added that he believes that “peace through strength works.” “We need to have NATO deployments in Eastern Europe with our allies. I think that actually deterrence works,” he said.
