BREAKING: Trump Shocks Everyone With Historic Speech – Drops Bombshell

Trump issued a speech on Wednesday discussing his foreign policy and even included some rarely-seen specifics. This is a vast departure from the vague rhetoric that you normally see from the GOP front-runner.

From AP:

In a rare formal policy speech, Republican front-runner Donald Trump vowed Wednesday to put American security “above all else” if elected president, warning allies they would be left to defend themselves if they don’t “pay their fair share.” He also called for an easing of tensions with Russia “from a position of strength, only.”

“‘America first’ will be the major and overriding theme of my administration,” Trump said in a 38-minute address at a Washington hotel.

Trump – fresh off a sweep of five Northeastern primaries that pushed him closer to the GOP nomination – sought to expand on foreign policy views that have lacked detail and worried experts in both parties. Still, he left major questions about his proposals unanswered, including his plan for defeating the Islamic State group, casting his sparse details as a strategy for catching America’s enemies off guard.

“We must, as a nation, be more unpredictable,” Trump said. The businessman read his remarks off a teleprompter, a notable change for a candidate who typically speaks off the cuff and has mocked his rivals for giving prepared speeches.

Trump appeared to send a mixed message to America’s allies. He doubled down on his previous assertion that other countries must contribute to international security agreements, such as NATO, if they’re to get the benefits of American military protection. Yet he also assured allies that the U.S. will have a renewed commitment to its overseas friends if he’s elected president.

“To our friends and allies, I say America is going to be strong again, America is going to be reliable again,” Trump said. “It’s going to be a great and reliable ally again.”

Do you believe Trump has what it takes to restore America to her former status in the world?
