POWER published.

The U.S. will attempt to regain its international standing as a world leader in nuclear energy through a three-pronged strategy that will essentially seek to strengthen the full domestic nuclear fuel cycle, possibly deny imports of nuclear fuel fabricated in Russia or China, and promote advanced reactor technologies.

The strategy is outlined in the White House’s Nuclear Fuel Working Group’s (NFWG’s) long-awaited findings released on April 23  in its report, “Restoring America’s Competitive Nuclear Advantage: A Strategy to Assure U.S. National Security.” President Trump convened the group, which includes representatives from various executive branch agencies, in July 2019 after the Department of Commerce in May 2019 found that uranium imports posed a threat to national security. The NFWG was tasked with examining domestic nuclear fuel production and options to revive the entire nuclear fuel supply chain.

It's interesting to see this positioning in the U.S., though the political side of nuclear doesn't seem like it's been addressed, where it's still a hot topic to those who oppose (which includes politicians). Hopefully the progress on advanced nuclear techs can help win over some skeptics, but I think there needs to be a serious focus on education and having the debate publicly to ensure more in the public are OK with nuclear (particularly if the generation or waste storage would be in their 'backyard')
