On his first international trip next month, President Donald Trump will "broadcast a message of unity … to the faithful of three of the world's greatest religions" and seek to strengthen American alliances, U.S. national security adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster said Friday.

Trump's scheduled trip to the Middle East and Europe next week has three core purposes, McMaster said during the White House press briefing. "First, to reaffirm America's global leadership. Second, to continue building key relationships with world leaders. And, third, to broadcast a message of unity to America's friends and to the faithful of three of the world's greatest religions."

Building strong relations is a priority for the president, McMaster added. "President Trump understands that America First does not mean American alone — to the contrary. Prioritizing American interests means strengthening alliances and partnerships that help us extend our influence and improve the security of the American people."

McMaster called the trip "truly historic," noting that "no president has ever visited the homelands and holy sites of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslims faiths all on one trip." The president, he added, "is seeking is to unite peoples of all faiths around a common vision of peace, progress, and prosperity. He will bring a message of tolerance and of hope to billions, including to millions of Americans who profess these faiths. The president will focus on what unites us."
