new National Security Strategy for a new era
Today at 2:00 p.m. ET, President Donald J. Trump will speak from the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington to unveil the National Security Strategy (NSS) for his Administration.
The NSS is an important milestone for any presidency. A statutorily mandated document, it explains to the American people, U.S. allies and partners, and federal agencies how the President intends to put his national security vision into practice.
What to expect: President Trump’s strategy arrives less than a year after he takes office and builds on 11 months of Presidential action to restore respect for America abroad and renew confidence at home. Its four core themes will sound familiar, reflecting key tenets of the President’s major foreign policy addresses in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Warsaw, Poland; and the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York.
Watch the President’s remarks here live at 2:00 p.m. ET.
The closing stretch for a major promise
When President Trump began his campaign, he promised that his Administration would push pro-growth economic policies that deliver financial relief to all Americans. With Congress’ release Friday of a conference report on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the President is on the verge of honoring that commitment in a big way.
By lowering rates, simplifying America’s tax code, and repealing a failed tax on lower- and middle-income households known as the Obamacare individual mandate, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will grow our economy and boost wages.
The President applauds the House and Senate conferees on coming to an agreement and looks forward to giving Americans a tax cut before the end of the year.
