Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker responded to President Barack Obama's criticisms of his foreign policy opinions, directly addressing a comment the President made.

In April, Obama said this during an interview with NPR:

“Perhaps Mr. Walker, after he's taken some time to bone up on foreign policy, will feel the same way.”

In an interview with Jonathan Karl on “This Week,” Walker said this:

“It's interesting for the president, the guy who called ISIS the 'JV squad' and Yemen a success story, somehow suggesting someone else should bone up on foreign policy.”

He then made a general comment on the efforts he's undergone educating himself on foreign policy and meeting with foreign leaders:

“My belief is if I'm gonna, if I'm even thinking about running for President of the United States, it's not about preparing for debates, it's about being prepared to be the President of the United States.”

According to the most recent polling, Walker is just behind the current frontrunner Jeb Bush to become the Republican nominee to run for President:

Although Walker has not officially announced, it seems almost certain that he will do so.
