The Trump administration will make defeating "radical Islamic terror groups" its top foreign policy goal, according to a statement posted on the White House website moments after Donald Trump's inauguration as U.S. president.The statement offered no indication of how Trump's policies might differ from those of his predecessor, Democrat Barack Obama.Trump's speech and the statement echoed his campaign criticism of Obama and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, for not using the phrase "radical Islamic terror" to describe Daesh and other hard-line militant groups.The White House statement also appeared to nod at better relations with Russia, something that Trump has said he would pursue.
