Condoleezza Rice: President Donald Trump stands for American values

President Donald Trump may sound different than other presidents, but he believes in American values and tries to act in the best interest of the United States, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told CNBC on Wednesday.

“I believe every president of the United States stands for our values,” said Rice, who served as secretary of State and national security advisor during the presidency of George W. Bush. “You heard President Trump say, for instance, after the Syrian chemical attack, we can’t let that stand. What he was saying was the president of the United States can’t let that stand.”

From the sidelines of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit at the Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois, Rice said on “Squawk Box” Trump knows the importance of alliances and expects him to forge ties with Democracies around the world.

“While the language may be different, and we might talk about needing to deal with policy, I think you’re going to see … that Americans’ interests in values are always linked,” Rice said. “It’s early days in this administration. Let’s remember that.”
