President Donald Trump's decisions on foreign policy have been "strong and decisive," according to Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas.

"It clearly understands that there is no such thing as leading from behind when it comes to tackling the most pressing international security issues," McCaul wrote in a Friday opinion piece on Fox News.

McCaul said the Trump administration is in strong contrast with Barack Obama's administration over the previous presidency's handling of ISIS.

Trump avoided Obama's strategy and "unleashed the generals to crush the enemy," McCaul said, referring to Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis and others in the administration that have military backgrounds.

The president also has taken action to protect South Korea and other allies such as Saudi Arabia, as well as tightening sanctions against Iran, the Homeland Security chairman said.

An "America First" view is not "isolationist," the congressman said.

"It is a way to unite our allies to pursue common goals that are American priorities," he said in his piece.

The U.S. has taken an active leadership role, and in doing so has made the world "a much more peaceful and prosperous place," McCaul said.

The Homeland Security chairman noted in the opinion piece that he does not always agree with Trump. On July 21, McCaul said that Trump's slams of special counsel Robert Mueller and Attorney General Jeff Sessions make him look "paranoid."
