Donald Trump's dramatic job growth policy has been revealed during today's round of Sunday politics programmes.
According to Stephen Miller, who is the White House policy advisor, all jobs must be first offered to Americans before they can be offered to foreign nationals.
The dramatic announcement follows from campaign pledges Mr Trump made during his presidential run.
During an interview with NBC'S Meet the Press, Mr Miller said: "Before a job is given to a foreign national, that job is offered first to an American worker".

Supporters believe the plan will help cut the unemployment rate in America while keeping jobs from flowing overseas.
Fans of the US President have been furious over what they perceive as foreign nationals given preference in employment.
Mr Miller made the policy reveal when asked if there was too much legal migration into the US.
He told Chuck Todd, the talk show's news anchor: "Trump campaigned on this. Union members agree with this. Many Democrats agree with us.
"If you have an open job, an American citizen ought to have the ability to make the first application to that job.
"The mainstream media don’t spend enough time talking about the people in America.
"There are 300 million people many of whom are living in poverty or haven’t seen wage growth in years. We need to think about them."

The White House advisor then laid out plans for a merit-based immigration policy.
He explained: "People should only come into the country on merit – only if they help bring up income of America.
But, before a job is given to a foreign national, that job is offered to an American worker."
The interview follows an 'immigration enforcement surge' in the past week, with a series of border agent raids deporting illegal migrants back to Mexico.
According to migrant groups, "panic and terror" is hitting the immigrant communities in the US following Mr Trump's crack down.
Raids have already ripped through New York, Los Angeles, North Carolina, South Carolina, Atlanta and Chicago.

He said: "A district judge in Seattle cannot make immigration law for the United States.
"The administration is pursuing every single possible action to keep our country safe from terrorism."
