White House adviser Ivanka Trump asserted on Monday that her father President Donald Trump had hit “another amazing milestone” by being the first president to openly discuss national security policy with the American people.
On Monday morning’s edition of Fox & Friends, host Steve Doocy noted that President Ronald Reagan had a principle of “peace through strength,” and he wondered how President Trump’s national security strategy is different from President Barack Obama’s.
“Well it’s based on the principles of America first,” Ivanka Trump said, referring to a speech Trump is slated to give on Monday. “It’s the principles that he’s campaigned on and that he’s governed based on since inception. I think what’s remarkable is that no president has rolled out — it’s highly unusual for a president to roll out a comprehensive national security strategy within the first year.”
“So, this is yet another amazing milestone for this presidency,” she smiled. “It’s been an unbelievable and really robust strategy and it’s going to be articulated by the president, which is also unusual.”
“Yep,” Doocy agreed.
“Normally, the president himself does not share the principles of the national security strategy,” the president’s daughter remarked. “This is so important to him, and so consistent with the views that he’s long held and which the American people voted on that he wanted to share with the American people himself.”
