U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday unveiled his national security plan that echoed with his “America First” vision while admitting that Russia employs “subversive tactics” to meddle with domestic political affairs of countries globally.

Trump’s speech, which sounded more like a campaign address, also lambasted his predecessors for “disappointing” Americans and undermining U.S. interests with decisions over issues such as immigration, the Iran nuclear deal and trade pacts, reports CNN.

The U.S. document, however, stopped short of mentioning alleged Russian interference in the last year’s presidential election, something which Trump has vehemently denied through his tenure, writes Reuters.
