Partnership for Open & Fair Skies Statement Following Release of Trump Administration’s National Security Strategy

WASHINGTON, DC (December 18, 2017) – Today, the White House released a National Security Strategy to lay out its approach to protecting the United States’ interests at home and abroad. The Partnership for Open & Fair Skies released the following statement:

“Congratulations to President Trump for advancing a national security vision where protecting American jobs is integral to our nation’s very security,” said Scott Reed, campaign manager for the Partnership for Open & Fair Skies. “In calling out ‘chronic trade abuses’ in the National Security Strategy, the Trump administration has made it crystal clear that the days of rampant trade cheating by two Mideast governments are over.

“Just last week, the Trump administration took a major step forward in ensuring our Open Skies agreements will be enforced and massive foreign subsidies will not be tolerated,” Reed said. “Today’s announcement is further proof that the Trump administration will defend American businesses and American workers from countries that violate our international agreements.”
