Trump Lays Out National Security Strategy

•, Jason Ditz

On Monday, the White House released the new National Security Strategy (NSS), and despite officials having said in the lead-up to the release it would be a major break with the past, the changes appear largely to be within the rhetoric, not the specifics.

The new NSS relies heavily and repeatedly on the phrase "putting America first," though in practice it still envisions soaring military spending and protracted overseas engagements as the ticket to American domestic safety and prosperity.

President Trump treated his speech on the NSS as a broad campaign speech, declaring himself a "glorious new hope" that America had embraced in the November 2016 election, cheering high stock market levels, and trumpeting his anti-immigration strategy.
