President Trump laid out his "America First" national security strategy in a speech Monday, saying, "Whether we like it or not, we are engaged in a new era of competition."

The bottom line from the Associated Press: Trump's strategy "envisions nations in constant competition, reverses Obama-era warnings on climate change and affirms that the United States will unilaterally defend its sovereignty, even if that means risking existing the agreements with other countries that have dominated the United States' foreign policy since the Cold War."
