Mr. Trump’s national security strategy, required of each administration by a 1986 law, focuses on rebuilding the military and promoting “peace through strength” overseas. It spells out many policies that the president has already emphasized during his first year in office, such as demanding that allies pay more of their share for defense alliances, and reversing President Obama’s decision to prioritize climate change a national security threat.

“A nation without borders is not a nation,” Mr. Trump said in a speech in Washington. “A nation that does not protect prosperity at home cannot protect its interests abroad.”

The strategy also identifies China and Russia as rival “revisionist powers” that are challenging American influence, values and wealth. “We will attempt to build a great partnership with those and other countries, but in a manner that always protects our national interest,” Mr. Trump said.

    So when is he going to start? Our border agents are down in numbers, he has done nothing to build up the military, unlike both Bush and Obama who introduce new ship building programs and weapons programs. The other nations of the world have no respect for him and he has made us less safe. So when are you going to start making our country more secure?
