Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that President Donald Trump is building a new world order based on the “foundation of American values.”
While addressing NATO in Brussels, Pompeo told member-nations and their representatives that the President is not trying to undermine the global alliance, but rather, challenging the coalition to achieve worldwide prosperity.
Pompeo also slammed U.S. allies for suggesting that America was acting unilaterally concerning countries like Iran and China, adding that it’s our mission to “reassert sovereignty and help our friends assert their sovereignty as well.”
“The first two years of the Trump administration demonstrated that President Trump is not undermining these institutions, nor is he abandoning American leadership. Quite the opposite. In the finest traditions of our great democracy, we are rallying the noble nations of the world to build a new liberal order that prevents war and achieves greater prosperity for all.”

Pompeo ended his address by repeating the President’s call for NATO members to pay their fair share of military aid.
