Rand Paul Calls Marco Rubio An ‘Isolationist’

It’s a term Rand Paul has rejected when applied to his own foreign policy. But on Friday, the libertarian-leaning Republican senator referred to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a potential opponent in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, as an “isolationist.” Discussing their differing opinions on Cuba, Paul wrote on Facebook: “Seems to me, Senator Rubio is acting like an isolationist who wants to retreat to our borders and perhaps build a moat. I reject this isolationism.” “Senator Marco Rubio believes the embargo against Cuba has been ineffective, yet he wants to continue perpetuating failed policies,” Paul said. “After 50 years of conflict, why not try a new approach? The United States trades and engages with other communist nations, such as China and Vietnam. Why not Cuba? I am a proponent of peace through commerce, and I believe engaging Cuba can lead to positive change.”??
