On Wednesday the Senate passed a measure 95-1 to add Finland and Sweden to the NATO alliance. U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), the lone vote in opposition to the legislation, delivered remarks on the Senate floor today explaining his vote against it:

“Our foreign policy should be about protecting the United States, our freedom, our people, and our way of life, and expanding NATO, I believe, would not do that,”said Senator Hawley. “What I am arguing for is the return to a classic nationalist approach to foreign policy […] grounded in our nation’s interests and in the reality of the world as it is, not as we wish it was.”
