President Donald Trump on Monday warned of global rivals that are “tough, tenacious committed” as he emphasized the need for strength at home and foreign relationships that prioritize American national security.
Speaking at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, Trump rolled out his administration's long-awaited national security strategy, translating campaign promises into official government policy.
“The entire world has heard the news and has already seen the signs — America is coming back and America is coming back strong,” Trump declared. “Upon my inauguration, I announced that the United States would return to a simple principle — the first duty of government is to serve its citizens.”
“Every American has a role to play in this grand national effort,” he added.
