President Donald Trump is right to take an America first approach to foreign policy, former Sen. Joe Lieberman told Newsmax TV.
During an appearance on "Newsmax Now," Lieberman was asked about Trump's national security speech Monday that outlined America's strategy moving forward.
"It's America first, which frankly it always should be America first," the Connecticut Democrat said. "Our foreign policy, our defense policy should always be about American freedom, American security, American prosperity.
"But this president by this document is fully engaged in the world to protect our security and our freedom and our prosperity, and I found it, in that sense, to be reassuring. I don't agree with everything about it, but I think it's a strong statement, and it's an honest statement. It's realistic."

Lieberman said Trump's speech took a position of "global leadership," a crucial piece of the puzzle if a country wants to be strong within its own borders.
"We can never be the leader in the world, or destined to be, unless we're strong here at home and that begins economically and of course if we're strong in the world, that helps our prosperity here at home," Lieberman said.
"That's certainly the way it's worked overall in the years since the end of the Second World War, when we really assumed global leadership. I think this was statement [Monday] by the president of global leadership."
