Trump reiterated his assurance that he will "put American first," saying there is no global flag, so that terrorism doesn't strike in the U.S. And in looking forward, Trump vowed that would "never apologize" for protecting the safety of American people and promised "brand new action" in the coming days to protect the nation.
