Marco Rubio delivered a speech on foreign policy in South Carolina on Friday, where he called Russian President Vladimir Putin of being a ‘gangster’ and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a ‘lunatic’.

Rubio made comments about Russia, North Korea, China, Iran and ‘jihadists’ around the world and questioned the totalitarian regimes in those regions, claiming that the United States should be spreading democracy.

However, the foreign policy hawk saved his harshest words for Putin saying ‘Russia is governed today by a gangster,’ Rubio said.

He continued saying, ‘He’s basically an organized crime figure who controls a government and a large territory..’This is a person who kills people because they’re his political enemies.

If you’re a political adversary of Vladimir Putin, you wind up with plutonium in your drink or shot in the street,” Rubio said.

‘He also called Russia one of the top five threats to the United States, saying we have a gangster running the largest nuclear stockpile in the world.’

Rubio’s comments on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un weren’t much less harsh.

‘In North Korea, a lunatic possesses dozens of nuclear weapons, and a long-range missile that can hit the United States,’ he said.

On the heels of President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, Rubio also called out Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

‘Iran: A radical, Shi’ite cleric is going to develop a nuclear weapon, and he will also have a long-range missile that can hit the United States,’ he said.

Rubio questioned Latin American countries stances on the United States, claiming Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela are anti-American.

He promised to end ‘sequestration’ defense cuts and restore U.S. military spending to earlier levels.

‘Doing so will allow us to neutralize the threat posed by China’s rapidly growing forces and capabilities. We’ll ensure that our carrier fleet is sufficient to support forward deployment of a second carrier to the Pacific,’ he said.

Rubio also vowed to fortify U.S. cyber defenses ‘to pressure China to halt its use of commercial espionage as a tool of statecraft.’
