  • Expediting the building of the Gordie Howe International Bridge.
  • Move forward on energy infrastructure projects, including the Keystone XL pipeline, that will create jobs while respecting the environment.

  • further cooperation to enhance critical infrastructure security, cyber incident management, public awareness, private sector engagement, and capacity building initiatives.
  • harness all elements of national power to achieve the goal of degrading and destroying Daesh [aka ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State] through our military operations to deny it safe havens and to build the capacity of local partners, stop the flow of foreign terrorist fighters into the Middle East region, cut off access to financing and funding, counter the Daesh narrative, and support the stabilization of communities liberated from Daesh.
