“In the past, we have foolishly released hundreds of dangerous terrorists, only to meet them again on the battlefield including the ISIS leader, al Baghdadi.
“Today I’m keeping another promise. I just signed an order directing Secretary Mattis. to reexamine our military detention policy and to keep open the detention facilities at Guantnamo Bay.
“I am also asking the Congress to ensure that, in the fight against ISIS and al Qa’ida, we continue to have all necessary power to detain terrorists wherever we chase them down.”
Afghanistan”Our warriors in Afghanistan also have new rules of engagement. Along with their heroic Afghan partners, our military is no longer undermined by artificial timelines, and we no longer tell our enemies our plans.”
Israel”Last month I also took an action endorsed unanimously by the Senate just months before: I recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“Shortly afterwards, dozens of countries voted in the United Nations General Assembly against America’s sovereign right to make this recognition. In 2016, American taxpayers generously sent those same countries more than $20 billion in aid.
“That is why, tonight, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to help ensure American foreign assistance dollars always serve American interests, and only go to friends of America, not enemies of America.”
Iran”When the people of Iran rose up against the crimes of their corrupt dictatorship, I did not stay silent. America stands with the people of Iran in their courageous struggle for freedom.
“I am asking the Congress to address the fundamental flaws in the terrible Iran nuclear deal.”
North Korea”No regime has oppressed its own citizens more totally or brutally than the cruel dictatorship in North Korea. North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland.
“We are waging a campaign of maximum pressure to prevent that from happening. Past experience has taught us that complacency and concessions only invite aggression and provocation. I will not repeat the mistakes of past administrations that got us into this dangerous position.
