Rep. Eric Cantor Speaks at VMI

Posted:

Lexington, VA – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor delivered a national security and foreign policy speech at Virginia Military Institute Monday.

Cantor told cadets the international community will only respond to threats from nations like Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Russia if the United States leads the way.

The congressman says we must not reduce our military preparedness against foreign and domestic threats.

"We have allies around the world who are beginning to question America's commitment to the principles upon which this nation is founded and they look to America for," said Cantor.

Cantor's speech was part of a lecture series at VMI. The congressman told the cadets that we will soon rely on them for a secure and stable world.
