Trade Is Trump’s Top Priority

The President is finally doing something we have all been waiting on. He is putting American prosperity and trade policy at the center of his national security strategy.

Trump said, “Economic security is national security… any nation that trades away its prosperity for security will end up losing both.”

The strategy document itself wrote, “We welcome all economic relationships rooted in fairness, reciprocity, and faithful adherence to the rules.”

“…But the United States will no longer turn a blind eye to violations, cheating, or economic aggression.”

“Experience shows that those countries distorted and undermined key economic institutions without undertaking significant reform of their economies or politics. They espouse free trade rhetoric and exploit its benefits, but only adhere selectively to the rules and agreements.”
