U.S. Republican presidential candidate Senator Marco Rubio stands after speaking during the Freedom Summit in Greenville, South CarolinaBy Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio said on Wednesday that the United States must respond aggressively when rivals such as China and Iran take actions that threaten U.S. economic interests. In an implicit criticism of U.S. President Barack Obama, Rubio, known for his hawkish views, said he would use American power to challenge nations like Russia and China when they pursue expansionist aims at sea, in the air, and in outer space or cyberspace. “Russia, China, Iran or any other nation that attempts to block global commerce will know to expect a response from my administration,” Rubio will say, according to excerpts of a speech he plans to deliver later on Wednesday at the Council on Foreign Relations.
