President Trump continues to lead an American foreign policy that bolsters our security and prosperity, strengthens our alliances and partnerships, and protects our precious freedoms. In just the past year, the United States has removed the head of ISIS and Iran’s top terrorist leader from the battlefield. We have maintained unprecedented support for our ally Israel and the Administration’s Vision for Peace is the best and most realistic framework for achieving peace today between Israel and the Palestinians. We’ve confronted the Chinese Communist Party’s economic abuses against the United States and our friends around the world. And we have built a coalition of nations eager to protect religious freedom for all people. All Americans can be proud of President Trump’s resolve to put American interests and values first and restore respect American leadership on the world stage.
