Group Founded by Nixon to Host Foreign Policy Speech by Trump

Donald J. Trump will deliver his first foreign policy address at the National Press Club in Washington next week, at an event hosted by a think tank founded by former President Richard M. Nixon.

The lunchtime speech, on Wednesday, will be Trump’s first major policy address.

The speech will be hosted by the Center for the National Interest, formerly known as the Nixon Center, and the magazine it publishes,.

The group’s associates include Henry A. Kissinger,  Nixon’s secretary of state, as well as Senator Jeff Sessions, the Alabama Republican who is a senior adviser to  Trump.
In the news release, Mr. Trump is quoted as saying: “I am honored to be invited to speak at an organization founded by former President Richard Nixon, and look forward to sharing my views on the many serious foreign  policy issues facing our country and our allies around the world. Trade, immigration and security policies are critical concerns of all Americans, and we must develop a clear, consistent long-term foreign policy for making America safe and prosperous.”
