President Trump makes no apologies – American interests matter first.
Unlike Obama, who took his marching orders from the rest of the world, Trump has taken a proactive approach to his presidency.
And if there was ever any doubt Trump was serious about protecting America, his latest move just shut down critics and naysayers.
In regards to Syria, Obama was mocked by leaders around the world for drawing a “red line”, then continuously not following through with his threats.
But not President Trump.
Trump is committed to ensuring the rest of the world knows America will always lead from a position of strength.
When Trump decided to act on Syria, he made it clear America is not entering into another war.
Trump was clear with reporters there would be no military invasions of Syria.
“President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday that he won’t send U.S. ground troops into Syria.
Trump ordered missile strikes last week targeting the airbase where U.S. intelligence believes the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad launched a chemical weapons attack early last week that killed dozens of civilians, including children.
Trump’s about-face on Syria — the “America first” candidate was previously against military intervention, advising President Barack Obama years ago to “stay the hell out of Syria” and questioning the result of bombing Syria aside from “more debt and a possible long term conflict” — raised doubts about whether the outsider who was elected sans any political or military experience had any foreign policy doctrine.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer, however, was adamant this week that it’s still “America first.” And while the administration has indicated that it won’t tolerate chemical weapons use, officials have been relatively quiet about the prospect of additional U.S. responses, aside from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin noting that economic sanctions are imminent.
“We’re not going into Syria,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo in an interview that will air Wednesday morning.”
While anti-war activists still tried to paint Trump out as a “war monger” who is eager to go to war, Spicer reiterated America is not the world’s policeman, and Trump is committed to putting America first, always.
“I think the Trump doctrine is something that he articulated throughout the campaign, which is that America’s first,” Spicer told Breitbart News during the White House press briefing.
Spicer added that the Trump administration would protect America’s interests in regards to national security and its economic priorities.
“We’re not just going to become the world’s policeman running around the world,” he said.
The president would have a “clear and defined national interest,” whenever he launched a military attack, Spicer stated.”
Spicer’s comments reveal Trump isn’t a “hot-tempered” maniac like the mainstream media attempts to portray him as, but is a calm, yet strong leader who is strategic about ensuring all decisions regarding foreign policy put America first.
