Guide to the Presidential Candidates’ National Security Positions

This version includes Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders, and Donald Trump. As the field shifts over the coming weeks, we may add or remove candidates from this list. We’ll also be periodically updating the information about the candidates’ positions as they wind their way through primary season and move into the general election.

This guide features sources for each summary and, whenever possible, cites official government websites or the candidates’ websites. In our research, we relied on their own statements and records rather than commentary on the candidates’ positions.

Many of the issues covered by this guide are incredibly complex — deserving of far more than just one or two sentences in a press release or campaign sound bite. As we do in our posts, events, and other projects, we will do our best to ensure we present their positions fairly and with nuance.
