President Trump announced the new National Security Strategy (NSS) on December 18, saying “With every decision and every action, we are now putting America first.” The NSS is supported by four pillars – protect the homeland, promote American prosperity, preserve peace through strength, and advance American influence.
The new NSS emphasizes strength, particularly military and economic strength, as well as increased border security and immigration reform, deterrence of cyber actors, and a commitment to “pursue terrorist threats to their source.” The NSS also promises to address trade imbalances, protect American intellectual property, and “pursue cooperation with reciprocity” with other nations.
