An emphasis on arms control and diplomacy when it comes to nuclear, chemical and cyber warfare, creating a national strategy for artifical intelligence and protecting digital privacy are among the priorities coming from John Delaney that you don’t hear a lot about from politicians of either party.
U.S. foreign policy has struggled for decades in the Middle East.
The country is considering strategies to with draw troops from Iraq and Syria.
The president pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.
Delaney discussed how he would approach the region.
Delaney has mentioned creating a national strategy for artificial intelligence.

Delaney clarified what that strategy would be and what pitfalls he has in mind.
Congress has failed to do much if anything when it comes to preventing data breaches.
