World jittery about Trump's 'America first' inaugural speech

President Donald Trump's inaugural speech promised "America first" policy, but offered no specifics about America's place in the world.

The billionaire businessman and reality television star — the first president who had never held political office or high military rank — promised to stir a "new national pride" and protect America from the "ravages" of countries he says have stolen U.S. jobs.

"This American carnage stops right here," Trump declared. In a warning to the world, he said, "From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this moment on, it's going to be America first."
