Although Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has said he's not yet ready to "tone down" his rhetoric, the businessman is going to take a shot at being a bit more presidential on Wednesday.
At the invitation of The National Interest Magazine and its parent institution, The Center for the National Interest, Trump will deliver a foreign policy address at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The speech, which will focus on several critical foreign policy issues facing our nation including global trade, and economic and national security policies, will begin at noon EDT.
"We are delighted to have Mr. Trump share his views on key global policies at such an important time during the 2016 presidential race," Center for the National Interest President Dimitri Simes said. "Engaging the foreign policy community and top experts is essential for the United States to develop an effective foreign policy agenda, and we applaud Mr. Trump for his commitment to this important arena."
The Center for the National Interest was established by former President Richard Nixon to serve as a voice for strategic realism in U.S. foreign policy. The Center seeks to stimulate debate and promote public understanding of U.S. foreign policy and international affairs.
"I am honored to be invited to speak at an organization founded by former President Richard Nixon, and look forward to sharing my views on the many serious foreign policy issues facing our country and our allies around the world," Trump said. "Trade, immigration and security policies are critical concerns of all Americans, and we must develop a clear, consistent, long-term foreign policy for making America safe and prosperous."
His appearance will be hosted by Zalmay Khalilzad, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Afghanistan and Iraq. He serves as an Advisory Council member to the Center for the National Interest.
