FILE - In this Dec. 16, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump talks with reporters as he departs from the South Lawn of the White House via Marine One in Washington, to spend the weekend at Camp David in Maryland. Prioritizing national sovereignty over alliances, Trump is poised to outline his national security vision, one that envisions nations in a perpetual state of competition and de-emphasizes the multinational agreements that have dominated the United States' foreign policy since the Cold War. The Republican president, who ran on a platform of "America First," will detail his plans Monday, ones that if fully implemented could sharply alter the United States' relationships with the rest of the world.
