President-elect Donald Trump's administration will change the "politically correct" national security policy that has been brewing in the White House for eight years, a high-profile congressman said Wednesday.

During a speech at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, said the current approach to keeping America safe under President Barack Obama is not effective.

The "wait-and-see approach to national security" means America's "allies no longer trust us and our adversaries no longer fear us," McCaul said, per the Washington Times.

McCaul added the current administration's refusal to use the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism" has led to more than 1,000 deaths at the hands of the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group across the world over the last year.

Under Trump, McCaul said, the U.S. government needs to overhaul its counterterrorism system — "the biggest domestic counterterrorism overhaul in decades."

McCaul wants to see America and its European allies suspend immigration from "high-risk areas" like Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and other countries with a terrorism presence.

Trump has called for a similar policy in the past.

Reince Priebus, the current head of the Republican National Committee, who will serve as the White House chief of staff under Trump, said last month Trump will suspend immigration from some countries until an improved vetting system is put together.
