Defund any state sponsors of Islamic terror, bolster support for countries such as Israel fighting radical Islam, target and eliminate any Islamic terror camps or strongholds. Travel ban to the US from any countries with Islamic terror connections.

The Government role in boosting the economy is to provide for international trade agreements, the promotion of US produced goods abroad. Internally the Government should protect intellectual property rights, advance free market policy and support entrepreneurs.
