US President Donald Trump has indicated he may pursue trade deals that include tariffs on imported goods in his first major foreign policy speech.
“We’re in the right position,” Mr Trump told supporters on Saturday.
“I think we’ll be in the perfect position.”
Mr Trump also promised to reduce the number of people in the US and Canada without health insurance, and said that if he was elected, he would end up eliminating the Affordable Care Act.
“Obamacare is not the problem,” he said.
“If I were president, it wouldn’t be a problem.
I’d cut it.
Mr Donald Trump’s foreign policy is likely to play a role in the 2020 election. “
It’s the people.”
Mr Donald Trump’s foreign policy is likely to play a role in the 2020 election.
He was one of the first US politicians to recognise climate change as a threat to the world, and has called for a “global solution” to address the threat.
He also called for the US to stop the US-led coalition against the Islamic State group (IS) in Syria and Iraq.
“The Middle East is now in the hands of ISIS,” he told supporters.
“They’re using us as a pawn in their fight.”
Mr Mr Trump has also repeatedly said he wants to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and has threatened to scrap the US$2.5 trillion (£1.9 trillion) in trade deals.
“There’s no question that I’m going to get rid of NAFTA,” he claimed in an interview last month with Fox News.
Mr Trumps chief strategist Steve Bannon also appeared at the rally on Saturday, with a promise to build a wall along the US border with Mexico. “
But we’ll renegotiate.”

“You don’t have to like me, but I will make Mexico pay for the wall,” Mr Bannon said.
US voters may be voting for someone who is anti-trade, anti-immigration, and a climate change denier, but Mr Trump’s promise to eliminate the ACA is likely a significant reason he may win the presidency.
“His policy of ending the ACA, to the tune of $1 trillion, will be the biggest political upset in US history,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, a political scientist at the University of Washington.
“That’s the one that people will remember for a long time.”
The president has promised to replace the ACA with “a national healthcare system” that will be more affordable and will “reduce costs and reduce the burden of medical debt”.
The Affordable Care, or Obamacare, was established in 2010 as a response to the collapse of the American economy following the Great Recession.
But it has been a controversial project, and it was also a political disaster.
The Affordable Health Care Act was meant to provide healthcare to every American, including those with pre-existing conditions.
But millions of Americans have been left uninsured, and many states have cut their Medicaid eligibility levels to cut the amount of healthcare they could afford.
Mr Trump was elected in November, promising to repeal the ACA and replace it with a new healthcare system, which he said would be “great and very expensive”.
Mr Trump will be sworn in on Monday, but the US will have to wait until 2020 for any major legislation on healthcare.
