  • state and we'll engage the world not as it Waas, but as it is a world of rising nationalism, receiving democracy, growing rivalry from China and Russia and other authoritarian states, mounting threats to a stable in open international system and a technological revolution that is reshaping every aspect of our lives, especially in cyberspace.

  • But for all that has changed, I believe some things remain constant.

  • And in everything we do around the world, I believe that we can, and we must ensure that our foreign policy is actually working to deliver for American working families.

  • Here it home.
