John Hickenlooper on War & Peace
Democratic Presidential Challenger (withdrew, Aug. 2019); CO Governor
BUTTIGIEG: We will withdraw. We have to.
Q: Gov. Hickenlooper, you disagree? You've said that you're open to keeping some servicemembers in Afghanistan beyond your first term.
HICKENLOOPER: I look at it as a humanitarian issue. If we completely pull our troops out of there, you're going to see a humanitarian disaster. We have troops in over 400 different locations around the world. Most of them are small, they're peacekeeping, they're not greatly at risk. We're going to have to be in Afghanistan. Look at the progress that has happened in that country. We're going to turn our backs and walk away from people that have risked their lives to help us and build a different future for Afghanistan and that part of the world?
EIGHT CANDIDATES HAVE SIMILAR VIEWS: John Delaney; Tulsi Gabbard; Kirsten Gillibrand; Kamala Harris; Jay Inslee; Beto O`Rourke; Bernard Sanders; Elizabeth Warren.
Many Democratic candidates have called for bringing U.S. troops home from America's post-9/11 wars without delay.
