Trump’s speech focused on building a stronger military, supporting existing police officers, soldiers and veterans as well as improving foreign policy concerning Syrian refugees, illegal immigration and the border.
Trump emphasized his longstanding position concerning building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in his speech.
“We will build a wall,” Trump said. “It will be a real wall.”
Trump also addressed national security, and he mentioned a strong military as well as a strong defense against terrorism as policy goals.
“We must be a safe nation,” he said. “Hillary supports open borders.”
Trump said his solution to the Syrian refugee crisis was to build safe zones in Syria rather than allow Syrian refugees entrance into the country, citing his concern over violence in Europe.
“We can’t let what is happening in Europe happen here,” he said.
He also spoke about improving the support of law enforcement officers in light of recent events.
