WATCH: Senator Rand Paul on Conservative Foreign Policy
Rob Bluey /
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) visits Heritage this morning to deliver a much-anticipated speech about a constitutionally conservative foreign policy — one that respects the Founders’ vision for America.
Paul’s speech begins at 11 a.m. ET. Heritage closed registration two days ago due to the high number of RSVPs. More than 300 people are expected to attend, filling two auditoriums. You can watch it live online.

With national security challenges from hostile nations such as Iran and North Korea, Paul believes current U.S. policies have not effectively addressed serious threats.
In his speech today, Paul plans to explain why foreign policy must respect the Constitution and what role Congress should have in conjunction with the executive branch. He wants the United States to “avoid never-ending conflict and protracted commitments.”
