The United States of America was ranked number 1 as having the most powerful military in the world in 2020. Since President Trump was inaugurated, the USA has eliminated some of the world’s top terrorists. Like him or not, President Trump is keeping his promises to Americans. Don’t believe me? Listen as Lieutenant General Keith Kellogg, (National Security Advisor to Vice-President Mike Pence), as he speaks at the 2020 Republican National Convention.
President Trump’s America First Foreign Policy & National Security:
Lieutenant Generall Kellogg praised President Trump for the following accomplishments that he has witnessed in the last 3 1/2 years:
- President Trump reversed the decline of our military.
- He restructured our national security strategy.
- “Our military is now better equipped, better resourced and better manned than any military in the world.”
- He demolished the terrorist ISIS caliphate in the Middle East.
- He eliminated ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
- He took decisive action against Iranian terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani (who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American servicemen in Iraq).
- Because of President Trump’s efforts, our NATO allies have increased their contributions by over $100 billion this year
President Trump’s Continuing Efforts in Foreign Policy:
Lt. Gen. Kellogg proceeded to tell the audience “Make no mistake. President Trump is no Hawk. He wisely wields the sword when required but believes in seeking peace instead of perpetual conflict.” The Lieutenant General gave the following two examples of President’s Trump’s peace efforts:
- President Trump brokered a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel (the 1st in the Middle East in 25 years).
- With help from American officials, this week, Afghan negotiators will start peace negotiations between the Taliban and the Afghan government to end America’s longest war.
Over to You:
Lieutenant General Kellogg went on to ask us if we believe that our President has kept the promises he made to the American people to: keep us out of needless conflicts, to pursue ending wars without end, to defend our interests by renegotiating trade deals (that previously hurt Americans and our national security) and to fulfill his Commander-in-Chief role by going against our enemies.
