America First Foreign Policy

The Trump Administration is committed to a foreign policy focused on American interests and American national security.

Peace through strength will be at the center of that foreign policy. This principle will make possible a stable, more peaceful world with less conflict and more common ground.

Defeating ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups will be our highest priority. To defeat and destroy these groups, we will pursue aggressive joint and coalition military operations when necessary. In addition, the Trump Administration will work with international partners to cut off funding for terrorist groups, to expand intelligence sharing, and to engage in cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable propaganda and recruiting.

Next, we will rebuild the American military. Our Navy has shrunk from more than 500 ships in 1991 to 275 in 2016. Our Air Force is roughly one third smaller than in 1991. President Trump is committed to reversing this trend, because he knows that our military dominance must be unquestioned.

Finally, in pursuing a foreign policy based on American interests, we will embrace diplomacy. The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies, that we are always happy when old enemies become friends, and when old friends become allies.

The world will be more peaceful and more prosperous with a stronger and more respected America.


Trade Deals Working For All Americans

For too long, Americans have been forced to accept trade deals that put the interests of insiders and the Washington elite over the hard-working men and women of this country. As a result, blue-collar towns and cities have watched their factories close and good-paying jobs move overseas, while Americans face a mounting trade deficit and a devastated manufacturing base.

With a lifetime of negotiating experience, the President understands how critical it is to put American workers and businesses first when it comes to trade. With tough and fair agreements, international trade can be used to grow our economy, return millions of jobs to America’s shores, and revitalize our nation’s suffering communities.

This strategy starts by withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and making certain that any new trade deals are in the interests of American workers. President Trump is committed to renegotiating NAFTA. If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States’ intent to withdraw from NAFTA.

In addition to rejecting and reworking failed trade deals, the United States will crack down on those nations that violate trade agreements and harm American workers in the process. The President will direct the Commerce Secretary to identify all trade violations and to use every tool at the federal government’s disposal to end these abuses.

To carry out his strategy, the President is appointing the toughest and smartest to his trade team, ensuring that Americans have the best negotiators possible. For too long, trade deals have been negotiated by, and for, members of the Washington establishment. President Trump will ensure that on his watch, trade policies will be implemented by and for the people, and will put America first.

By fighting for fair but tough trade deals, we can bring jobs back to America’s shores, increase wages, and support U.S. manufacturing.

The International District Apostle Meeting in Dortmund has come to an end

Zurich/Dortmund. “I thank you for your brotherly collaboration. I have learned a great deal.” It was with these words that the Chief Apostle dismissed the District Apostles and District Apostle Helpers for the weekend. The International District Apostle Meeting was focused on both strategic and theological topics of discussion.

The starting beat on Wednesday was the Africa Conference. Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider prayed very sincerely for the many congregations on the African continent. Here the New Apostolic Church has its most densely concentrated membership. As the reports from the individual District Apostles made clear, the social and political conditions are difficult in many African countries.

Keeping an eye on strategy

The international Church leader called upon his fellow Apostles to keep an eye on the various changes and developments. “Crises,” he explained, “require strategic solutions, reliable statistics, and appropriate decisions. Only in this manner can we monitor the coming years and plan in advance,” an issue that affects the planned construction of church buildings in the various cities and the pastoral care provided by the Church’s ministers.

District Apostle John Kriel from South Africa presented a success story. The New Apostolic television station known as “NAC TV”, which is based in Cape Town, has been broadcasting its religious programming three times each week to some 35,000 households. This amounts to approximately 80,000 viewers. Programming includes divine services, choral and orchestral music, theological seminars, and training for teachers. Series such as “Who is …?”, “Know your Church”, and “Young Peoples’ Desk” are well received.

The IYC 2019 is to become truly international!

The District Apostle Meeting International (DAMI) also occupied itself with further deliberations on the concept of ministry in the New Apostolic Church. Significant resolutions had already been passed at the last DAMI in Vienna and presented by the Chief Apostle in a Europe-wide divine service for ministers. Accordingly, the assumption of a leadership responsibility by a minister of the Church will no longer be effected through ordination, but rather by way of an appointment. As of the District Apostle Meeting in Vienna, this has already applied to the apostolate of the Church. Future deliberations will deal with the Priest ministry and the Diaconate.

A current report on the state of the preparations for the International Youth Convention 2019 made it clear just how important the “I”—for “International”—really is to the Church’s leadership.  Young people from around the world have been invited to Düsseldorf, Germany under the motto “Here I am”. Given the broad expanse covered by the New Apostolic Church—which is, after all, a global Church—this will be a special challenge. In the meantime, a representative survey of the younger generation has shown that, while the various age groups prefer different content, all age groups demonstrate the same level of interest for classical Church topics such as, for example, the return of Christ or life after death. The collective celebration of the divine service garnered the highest response among all age groups.

Ten-point code for social media use

For many years now, the New Apostolic Church has been working with various social networks. The Communication Services Group, which is at home in the international Church office, is responsible for the information that appears in the various media. Now a code of conduct has been established that is addressed to all media representatives within the Church. Legal material, content-related material, and ethical objectives have now been captured in a Social Media Guideline and distributed to all the national churches. Chief Apostle Schneider remarked as follows: “Ministers and Church employees, but also Church members—who naturally also profess their faith online—should be aware of the New Apostolic Church’s position on activities in social media.” A ten-point code of conduct describes how, and in what style, the Church seeks to present itself, namely respectfully, honestly, legally, responsibly, and beyond moral reproach—just to mention a few.


Pope Francis Arrives in Myanmar

Pope Francis arrived in Myanmar Monday in his effort to draw global attention to the Rohingya refugee crisis.

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church visits Bangladesh Thursday.

The pontiff’s schedule does not include a visit to a refugee camp, but he is expected to meet with a small group of Rohingya in Dhaka, the Bangladeshi capital.

“I am coming to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a message of reconciliation, forgiveness, and peace,” Pope Francis told Vatican Radio, “My visit is meant to confirm the Catholic community of Myanmar in its worship of God and its witness to the gospel.”.

In recent weeks, Myanmar and Bangladesh have agreed to the return of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who fled to Bangladesh to escape violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, according to officials from both countries.

Despite the deal, Cardinal Patrick D’Rozario told the French news agency the situation remains “explosive and tough to resolve.”

“I am hopeful the Rohingya can be returned to Myanmar,” D’Rozario, the Archbishop of Dhaka, told AFP.

Reports said the deal was signed following talks in Myanmar’s capital, Naypyitaw, with Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and Bangladesh’s foreign minister, Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali. The French news agency AFP quoted Ali as saying, “This is a primary step. [They] will take back [Rohingya]. Now we have to start working.”

The U.N. refugee agency spokesperson said conditions in Myanmar’s Rakhine state are not in place to enable safe and sustainable returns.

“Refugees are still fleeing, and many have suffered violence, rape, and deep psychological harm,” Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, said Friday.

D’Rozario, who was made cardinal by Francis in 2016, is still looking forward to the pontiff’s visit. There are about 360,000 Catholics in Bangladesh.

“The cries of the Rohingya are the cries of humanity,” D’Rozario said. “These cries ought to be heard and addressed. The main thing is to tell the people ‘We are on your side,” he said.

The cardinal spent two days visiting a refugee camp, speaking with families forced to leave their homes in Rakhine state.

“The international response for relief has been satisfactory, but how long will it last for? Generosity will not continue to flow as it did in the initial phase of the crisis.”

D’Rozario added that Bangladesh, though overcrowded and impoverished, deserves praise for its efforts in helping those fleeing violence.

“There are a lot of tensions, social tensions. Land is not available. It’s a very densely populated country, physically they don’t have any space. I admire the local people (for their restraint), the population has more than doubled. There are environmental issues with all the trees cut to make shelters. There will be landslides when there is big rain,” he said.

About 600,000 people have fled Myanmar for neighboring Bangladesh, which is now undergoing its own crisis as it seeks to accommodate the Rohingya.

“It is not possible for Bangladesh alone to tackle this. The future looks very bleak,” D’Rozario said.


Making Our Military Strong Again

Our men and women in uniform are the greatest fighting force in the world and the guardians of American freedom. That’s why the Trump Administration will rebuild our military and do everything it can to make sure our veterans get the care they deserve.

Our military needs every asset at its disposal to defend America. We cannot allow other nations to surpass our military capability. The Trump Administration will pursue the highest level of military readiness.

President Trump will end the defense sequester and submit a new budget to Congress outlining a plan to rebuild our military. We will provide our military leaders with the means to plan for our future defense needs.

We will also develop a state-of-the-art missile defense system to protect against missile-based attacks from states like Iran and North Korea.

Cyberwarfare is an emerging battlefield, and we must take every measure to safeguard our national security secrets and systems. We will make it a priority to develop defensive and offensive cyber capabilities at our U.S. Cyber Command, and recruit the best and brightest Americans to serve in this crucial area.

Let us never forget that our military is comprised of heroic people. We must also ensure that we have the best medical care, education and support for our military service members and their families – both when they serve, and when they return to civilian life.

We will get our veterans the care they need wherever and whenever they need it. There should be no more long drives. No more wait lists or scheduling backlogs. No more excessive red tape. Just the care and support our veterans have earned through sacrifice and service to our country. The Trump Administration will transform the Department of Veterans Affairs to meet the needs of 21st century service members and of our female veterans. Our reforms will begin with firing the corrupt and incompetent VA executives who let our veterans down, modernizing the bureaucracy, and empowering the doctors and nurses to ensure our veterans receive the best care available in a timely manner.

Under the Trump Administration, America will meet its commitments to our veterans.
