Trump Issues New Strategy for Counterterrorism

President Trump has released a new strategy meant to protect the U.S. from evolving terrorist threats.

The White House said Thursday the National Strategy for Counterterrorism centers on identifying terrorism sources, separating terrorists from their support system, modernizing American counterterrorism tools and preventing extremist radicalization and recruitment, among other things.

The new approach also stresses on building and strengthening secure borders and points of entry, protecting critical infrastructure and ensuring readiness.

The Trump administration additionally aims to boost America’s local and international partnerships such as with NATO allies to increase support for counterterrorism projects.

“The National Strategy for Counterterrorism recognizes the full range of terrorist threats that the United States confronts within and beyond our borders, and emphasizes the use of all elements of national power to combat terrorism and terrorist ideologies,” said Trump in the foreword of the counterterrorism document.
