No mention of Mexico or border wall in Trump's foreign policy address
In a broad-ranging speech on foreign policy, Republican front-runner Donald Trump appeared to trade his bombastic tone that has defined his campaign so far to a more level and nuanced approach as the billionaire businessman closes in on the GOP nomination.
Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., Trump skipped any mention of Mexico or illegal immigration that has been a prominent topic in his campaign speeches and instead espoused an approach to foreign policy centering on building up U.S. military assets and fostering diplomacy with America's allies.
"'America first' will be the major and overriding theme of my administration," Trump said.

Proving the wall works
Last summer the Washington Post featured a photo of me flying an airplane along the border with the words “GO TRUMP” on the bottom wing.
Last month, Spencer appeared on former Arizona Rep. J.D. Hayworth's NewsMax show and invited Trump to personally watch the test of his new triple-threat radar/sonar/seismic detection tech, designed to catch anything unusual crossing the border. It could supplement the border fence that obviously, also, needed to be built.
"Those that will come can see firsthand the type of technology that is needed to see if the border is secure," said Spencer.
Trump could not make it, but according to Spencer, he assigned someone to watch. That inspired Spencer to paint the plane used to test the technology: "GO TRUMP." Trump's aide failed to show, but Spencer's enthusiasm was undimmed. His SEIDARM was detecting movement 500 feet across the border.
Since that story appeared I have received a patent for the SEIDARM system - and it has been successfully tested by a law enforcement agency.
Mr. Trump, I hope your campaign will find the time to come to the border and find out how you can prove your wall works.
