Jeb Bush had already planned to give a speech Wednesday about defense policy before the Paris terror attacks happened. Now the presidential candidate will focus more intently on ISIS while laying out his proposals, according to his campaign.
At The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, Bush will push for growing the U.S. military, reversing budget cuts to the Defense Department and revamping defense contracting in an effort to increase competition and cut costs.
Bush plans to criticize the Obama administration for not pushing a more forceful anti-ISIS strategy and for shrinking the size of the military and the Defense Department's budget. The former Florida governor will call for more U.S. involvement in NATO, and for more focus in the Indo-Pacific region. He will pledge to grow the active-duty military and step-up air force investment.
Bush has already endorsed sending more U.S. help to Iraqi security forces, Kurds and Syrian moderate rebels, and to implement a no-fly zone in Syria.
