Speaking on Ronald Reagan’s 102nd birthday, Paul also cited the 40th president.

“Reagan’s foreign policy was much closer to what I am advocating than what we have today,” he said. “The former Chairman of the American Conservative Union David Keene noted that Reagan’s policy was much less interventionist than the presidents of both parties who came right before him and after him.”

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, who may be vying with Paul in the GOP presidential primaries three years from now, delivered a foreign policy address at the Brookings Institution last year. Rubio was critical of non-interventionist trends within his party.

Paul spoke for less than half an hour and did not take questions afterward. He is scheduled to discuss his remarks with reporters Wednesday afternoon.
