Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on President Trump’s “America First” Strategy
“President Trump’s doctrine of principled realism presents a refreshing and sober-minded strategy to advance American interests and defend the homeland. The geopolitical arena is competitive and cutthroat – we cannot expect other sovereign nations to just sing Kumbaya and support our goals. Power is what moves nations, and it’s about time our country started projecting ours. When we draw a line in the sand, the world should know that it matters.
“I especially support the President’s focus on confronting international terror threats. We’re winning on the battlefield, but we have to constantly stay vigilant at home. That means tighter vetting and continuous improvements to securing our critical infrastructure, including the cyber realm."
