Trump Touts Nationalism Over Globalism

Donald Trump, in his speech, touted nationalism over globalism. Trump said, “The free world must embrace its national foundations. It must not attempt to erase them, or replace them,” Trump said. “The true good of the nation, can only be pursued by those who love it, by citizens who are rooted in its history, who are nourished by its culture, committed to its values, attached to his people.” Trump also said, “Patriots see a nation and its destiny in ways no one else can. Liberty is only preserved, sovereignty is only secure, democracy is only sustained, greatness is only realized by the will and devotion of patriots.” Trump also opened his speech with an ominous reference to U.S. military might, “The United States, after having spent over two and a half trillion dollars since my election to completely rebuild our great military is also by far the world’s most powerful nation,” he said. “Hopefully, it will never have to use this power.” He singled out Iran, saying its people deserved a government that cares about jobs and its people and decreasing poverty. He said that after four decades of failure, it was time for Iran to stop threatening other countries and build up their own nation. Discussing the attacks on Saudi Arabian oil fields, he stated that U.S. emphasis was on peaceful resolution of the conflict. Reported by The Guardian. Read more…
