The interesting twist in this our third attempt to objectify a person's foundational stance is that we will be comparing two different presentations in order to see if there is any significant change from one context to another.

It's becoming clear that any assessment of President Trumps foundational stance using the evidence provided by these two public speeches will be incomplete without an answer to the question of what he is actually doing as opposed to what he says he will do. At some future point, we may have to delve into the question of his public record for the first two years of his presidency, but for now I'd like to draw your attention to a little known document titled "National Security Strategy of the United States of America" dated December 2017, commissioned by President Trump. This document not only provides direct evidence of what he is doing but gives the rational for many of his actions in office.
This is the third testing of a research methodology for working out the foundational stance based on a detailed video chosen for the way in which the person presents who he really is, i.e., his core value. Note how evaluating the previous attempt has lead to an improvement of our technique.
NOTE: We will resume this thread in September. In the meantime I'm working on The Project, an attempt to pull together over 14 years of work. RCB
