In an interview with CBS News, Williamson called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo hypocritical for, in her words, seeming to believe "you can promote values around the world and still have strategic partnerships with countries that display no such values," she said. "You are not promoting your values if you're not willing to stand on them." She's specifically criticized the relationship between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, tweeting in February: "Any sane person would realize that if you do something completely immoral (selling arms to the Saudis while they're killing people in Yemin[sic]) then it will probably come back at you in unintended ways?"
She has also commented on Afghanistan on Twitter. In a tweet in February, Williamson wrote:"The Taliban's violently oppressive attitude toward women isn't something we can change, but we should be led by a president whose concern for the well-being of Afghani women is a major factor in determining our policies there. We should always bear witness to the agony of others."
Williamson also offered her perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and peace process, saying in an interview with the Jewish Telegraphic Agency: "I don't think the ultimate answer will be about settlements or checkpoints," she said.
