The President stated this in a report to Congress “On the situation in the country” in less than a week after he announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Treaty era of the cold war, accusing Russia of violating it. “We might be able to negotiate a different agreement, with the participation of China and others. Maybe it will not work, and then we’ll rest at the level of spending and innovation,” trump promised.
Trump recalled that a few decades ago, the United States signed a Treaty with Russia, under which they agreed to limit and reduce its nuclear capability. “While we scrupulously adhere to the Treaty, Russia has repeatedly violated its provisions, – said trump. That’s why I announced that the United States officially out of the Treaty on the elimination of intermediate-range, or INF Treaty”.
“Under my administration we will never apologize for defending the interests of America,” said trump, adding that part of the buildup of its military might the United States develop the latest missile defense system.
In his speech, trump criticized the implicit criticism “of the Russian” investigation of spectracolor Robert Mueller. Referring to the many economic successes, trump said that his “economic miracle” can stop a “stupid war, politics or ridiculous politically motivated investigation.” Trump has repeatedly called the investigation of Muller and similar proceedings in the Congress of “witch-hunt”.
Trump announced that his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN will be held on February 27-28 in Vietnam. The President also touched on the themes of peace negotiations, the U.S. and the Taliban and the situation in Syria.
In January, U.S. officials said the progress in reaching a framework agreement, under which the U.S. withdraws its troops from Afghanistan in exchange for the Taliban’s promise that this country will no longer be used by terrorists.
Trump also announced plans for the withdrawal of two thousand American soldiers from Syria, stating that “Islamic state” as a whole was defeated in this country. “As a candidate, I promised a new approach. A great nation is not conducting endless wars,” said trump.
Commenting on the political situation in the United States, trump promised that he will never allow socialism to establish itself on American soil. “Here in the United States, we are concerned about new calls to establish socialism in our country, he said. America was founded on the principles of freedom and independence, and not on state coercion, domination and control. We are born free, and we will remain free. Today we reaffirm our commitment that America will never be a socialist country”. However, he did not specify how he would achieve this goal.
