Live video: Mitt Romney’s foreign policy speech at VFW convention in Reno, Nev.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is giving a major speech on foreign policy at the Veterans of Foreign Wars annual convention Tuesday in Reno, Nev.

Romney, who will travel abroad late Tuesday for a six-day trip, is expected to criticize President Obama’s record on foreign policy and call him out over leaks and defense cuts.

The Post’s Dan Balz reports that Romney’s campaign advisers have tried to set relatively low expectations for the trip:

They say it is an opportunity for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee to learn and listen in three countries that are among America’s staunchest allies. He will hold a series of private meetings with foreign leaders, deliver speeches in Israel and Poland, attend the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, visit historical sites and conduct interviews with U.S. television networks.

Watch live video of the speech right here.
