USA: Sen. Rand Paul talks policies after announcing 2016 presidential bid

After announcing his candidacy for the 2016 US presidential race in Louisville, Kentucky, on Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul spoke about his goals and policies should he win the election and become the next president of the USA. Among the issues addressed, Paul said that “haters of America” should not receive “one penny more” from the USA. The Republican candidate also referred to the current government as “inept at home” and voiced his concern that the Iranian nuclear agreement would lead Obama to "unilaterally and prematurely halt sanctions" against Tehran. Paul made clear that he would "oppose any deal that does not end Iran's nuclear ambitions and have strong verification measures." Following Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Rand was the second major Republican candidate to announce his candidacy this week. Rand’s parents Ron and Carol Paul were present in the audience for their son's announcement.
