“We will partner with every nation that is willing to join us in the effort to defeat ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism,” the TASS news agency quoted the words of Trump, speaking at US Bank Arena in Cincinnati on Thursday evening.
“We will destroy ISIS. At the same time, we will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments, folks,” The Washington Examiner magazine cited his words.
“Our goal is stability, not chaos because we wanna rebuild our country. It’s time,” Trump added.
He also promised that “depleted” military of the US will be rebuilt, and repeated many other vows of his campaign, including a promise of construction of a “great wall at the border” with Mexico.
The future US President also once again mentioned his mission to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, calling for help for female entrepreneurs, affordable childcare, and an investment of federal resources for law enforcement across the country.
During his speech, Trump also made a surprise announcement, declaring that he chose Marine Gen. James Mattis as a secretary of defense during his future presidency.
Further stops of victory tour of the US President-elect have not yet been declared. According to the Bloomberg news agency, citing some officials, additional stops on the tour will be announced after the venues have been booked. However, earlier, in November, head of the Trump’s advance team George Gigicos told reporters that he tour may take Trump to “swing states we flipped over.”
