Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is set to deliver a key foreign policy speech in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this morning.
Ahead of the speech, the Trump campaign released a list of 10 proposals that he will go over. Some of these are proposals Trump has previously discussed, such as asking U.S. generals to bring him a plan to defeat ISIS within 30 days.
Trump also says he will eliminate the defense sequester, increase funding to the military, and enforce laws related to the handling of classified information.
