Trump Releases National Security Strategy, Focus on Trade

December 19, 2017 12:25 PM

President Donald Trump has a tough stance on trade, wanting more fair deals. That was especially evident Monday as the White House unveiled Trump’s national security strategy, and domestic, economic and trade policies are at the core of the plan.

During his speech, Trump stressed his “America First” approach and said America is making a comeback.

“America is in the game and America is going to win,” said Trump.

The 68-page document is based on four principles: restricting immigration to protect the U.S., pressuring trade partners like China and Russia, building the military, and increasing the U.S.’s global influence.

“It calls for trade based on the principles of fairness and reciprocity, calls for firm action against unfair trade practices and intellectual property theft, and it calls for new steps to protect our national security industrial and innovation base,” said Trump.

The strategy is mandated by Congress to explain the president’s vision of national security and what he will do to put it into practice.
