Johnson is supportive of activities that promote friendship between the United States and Cuba.
Bret Baier: Governor Johnson, here in Florida, charter flights from Fort Lauderdale to Havana, Cuba, have resumed. Is there a problem with that? And what are your thoughts on U.S.-Cuba policy?
Gary Johnson: I think the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, so I am promising to submit a balanced budget to Congress in the year 2013, and included in that is a 43 percent reduction in military spending. I think it's crazy that we have foreign aid to company, to countries when we're borrowing 43 cents out of every dollar to do that.
Military alliances, military alliances are really key to other countries taking up the slack. With regard to flights to Cuba? You know, I'm, I'm in favor, I think, of the whole notion that trade promotes friendship, as opposed to not. So I would be inclined to looking at establishing or supporting those kinds of flights.
