Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson says President Obama "doesn't think America is force for good in the world.

"He just has such a reluctance, such a revulsion to actually leading, utilizing America's military strength," Johnson said in an interview with NewsMaxTV's program Midpoint Thursday.

"Remember this is the president in the first part of his term who apologized for America," he said. "He doesn't believe that America is a force for good in the world. He thinks our involvement in the world actually makes matters worse. That we upset people because we engage in the world. Because we lead."

Here's the video of Johnson's remarks:
