Obama says at fundraiser that American foreign policy has been strengthened
NEW YORK (AP) ' President Barack Obama is defending his foreign policy record, telling donors America is stronger now than it was three years ago.
Speaking at a fundraiser for Jewish leaders, Obama says U.S. support for Israel's security is "nonnegotiable." He also defended his administration's approach to Iran, saying even Tehran has acknowledged that U.S. sanctions are having an impact.
Urging donors to back him in 2012, Obama says he shares their values. And he says he expected a tough campaign, no matter who the Republicans nominate.
Obama is in New York for four glitzy fundraisers for his presidential campaign. He arrived after making a high-profile appearance at Walt Disney World, where he announced initiatives aimed at boosting tourism.
