Trump Unveils New National Security Strategy

President Donald Trump unveiled Monday his new National Security Strategy document, which outlines his priorities for defense and homeland security.


President Trump released his federally mandated National Security Strategy on Monday afternoon in what the White House said is an effort to “renew confidence in America both at home and abroad.” In announcing the NSS, the president said:

“Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens—to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values.”

The NSS is grounded in four “pillars” of vital national interest:

  1. Protect the homeland, the American people, and the American way of life
  2. Promote American prosperity
  3. Preserve peace through strength
  4. Advance American influence

The principle challenges outlined in the strategy include revisionist powers, such as China and Russia, that use technology, propaganda, and coercion to shape a world antithetical to our interests and values; regional dictators that spread terror and pursue weapons of mass destruction;  jihadist terrorists that foment hatred to incite violence against innocents and transnational criminal organizations that spill drugs and violence into our communities.
