(USA Features) A group of officials and Cabinet members who worked for former President Donald Trump have launched a new organization to promote “policies that put the American people first.”
“The America First Policy Institute is launching to continue the transformative changes that happened over the last four years,” AFPI President and CEO Brooke Rollins said in a video released Tuesday.
Rollins served as the director of the Domestic Policy Council during Trump’s tenure. Before taking that post, she directed the White House Office of American Innovation.
“The Trump Administration’s policy agenda created the greatest economy of our lifetimes,” Rollins continued in a statement. “We’re going to innovate and advocate for policies to put the American people first. This means securing our Nation’s border, reviving American industry, reasserting American primacy, and most of all, restoring American optimism.”
The organization says on its website it will advance policies to secure U.S. borders, safeguard election integrity, and promote merit-based systems. Also, the AFPI will advance policies that “respect life, uphold God-given liberties, preserve freedom of expression, and restore basic humanity.”
AFPI will also take a hardline stance on China policy and that it plans to research and develop “policies that study how decades of America’s accommodation of Communist China has nurtured an existential rival to our Nation and our livelihood as we know it.”
The group becomes the largest pro-Trump organization with a first-year budget of $20 million, according to Axios.
Trump himself voiced his support for AFPI.
“The patriots assembling the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) are some of the greatest champions for freedom, free enterprise, national greatness, and the primacy of American workers, families, and communities, that our Nation has ever seen,” Trump said in a statement.
“Linda McMahon, Brooke Rollins, Larry Kudlow, Rick Perry, General Kellogg, and the rest of the freedom warriors at AFPI have my full support as they work not only to preserve the historic accomplishments of my Administration but also to propel the America First Agenda into the future. I look forward to working with them to save America,” he said.
