Trump battle lines are clearly drawn

Donald Trump came here to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday to give a foreign policy speech. The political reaction that it spawned most likely foreshadows the way his campaign will be received from now until November.

For only the second time, Trump used a teleprompter to make his remarks – and it showed, as the GOP leader used a more tentative and soothing voice to deliver his speech.

“America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration,” Trump said to a smattering of applause.

The full text of Trump’s speech can be found on his website.
