“The president would be best to articulate that, but what I can tell you is that leaders around the world know we have a president who once again embraces America’s role as leader of the free world,” Pence said when asked to define the Trump Doctrine. “He leads from a standpoint of strength.”
The president’s unique approach to leadership, the vice president told Breitbart News, can be seen in America’s dealings during his presidency with allies and with adversaries alike—and it is different than previous administrations. Examples of dealing with allies include the recently approved U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement, which Pence discussed in the first part of his exclusive interview with Breitbart News, or working with European partners to strengthen NATO commitments—which have increased significantly since Trump became president.
“He’s demonstrated a willingness to engage countries all over the world, allies and adversaries, but to do so from a position of strength,” Pence said.
