Trump promises ‘new’ foreign policy direction

US president-elect Donald Trump has once again promised a different US foreign policy approach under his leadership.

"Our foreign policy needs a new direction," Trump said at a Friday thank you rally in Orlando, Florida, stressing that "instead of rebuilding foreign nations it's time to rebuild our own nation." The president-elect emphasized that US "interventions" abroad must stop.

"A Trump administration will focus on vital national security interests," he told the Orlando crowd.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump advocated for a more isolationist foreign policy than that of President Barack Obama and recent administrations.

Trump's inauguration will take place on January 20.
