Trump on Nationalism and Globalism

Oct. 31, 2018 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump, interviewed by Laura Ingraham on Fox News Monday night, Oct. 29, was asked what he thought about the term “nationalism” being equated with anti-Semitism and hate.

Trump responded:

“No. To me I don’t have to clarify. It means I love the country. It means I’m fighting for the country. I look at two things, globalists and nationalists. I’m somebody that wants to take care of our country because for many, many years ... our leaders have been more worried about the world than they have about the United States. And then leave us in a mess, whether it’s the wars, whether it’s the economy, whether it’s debt, whether it’s all of the things that they’ve done....

“Now, I’m proud of this country and I call that nationalism.... I’m not a globalist but I want to take care of the globe, but first I have to take care of our country. I want to help people around the world but we have to take care of our country or we won’t have a country, including we have to take care of our country at the border.”
