    The United States is going to abandon its decades of policies promoting regime change in countries around the world, President-elect Donald Trump told a rally in Fayetteville in the US state of North Carolina.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Trump pledged to follow a policy of restraining US military force around the world rather than unleashing it.

    “We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about that we shouldn't be involved with,” Trump said on Tuesday. “This destructive cycle of intervention and chaos must finally come to an end.”

    The president-elect gave “a commitment to engage the use of military forces only when it is in the…interests of the United States. … We want to strengthen old friendships and seek out new friendships… … We seek harmony and goodwill among the nations of the world,” he said.

    Trump said he would be guided by the lessons of history and that he believed in trust and mutual understanding among nations.
