It’s a comment that has in some ways reaffirmed the doubts and concerns of many Trump supporters, particularly in light of the political leanings of some of those who have been given top spots in his administration. Lately his base has had numerous occasions in which we were forced to just “suck it up,” and face the reality that he was better than the alternative by far, but perhaps falling short of our hopes and our expectations.
DACA is still granting amnesty to illegals every day and thousands of refugees are pouring into our nation with nothing but two obstructed executive orders to show as an effort to be the President and halt that part of the invasion, as promised. He controls the State and Homeland Security Departments and could easily change the visa processing or vetting procedures on his own, which would accomplish the same thing as the executive order. Trump’s people, his chief economic advisor and former Goldman Sachs COO, Gary Cohn, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, as well as his daughter most recently, and others, are floating the idea of remaining in the Paris climate fraud.
That’s a 31 page document, having only four or five sentences regarding actual CO2 levels and temperature, and the rest devoted to the plotting and mechanics of how they’re going to get their hands on America’s stuff. How the “developed nations,” dole out the international welfare to the “undeveloped and small island nations.” It is a complete, utter and totally naked fraud that we have no business being a party to. It’s not a climate deal it’s a global wealth redistribution scam, a globalist linchpin All of those issues could be fixed in a couple of hours yet we’re stuck in the swamp mud.
MAGA does not mean “Make America Globalist Again,” as President Trump well knows, it’s his catch phrase. The two views of national sovereignty and globalism are completely incompatible. One cannot be a nationalist and support globalist actions, or vice versa. Each is destructive and antithetical to the other.
It’s perplexing that, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Thursday, President Trump commented, “Hey, I’m a nationalist and a globalist. I’m both and I’m the only one who makes the decision, believe me.” Could that be the first steps of an admission that he’s changed from a nationalist to a globalist or that he never really was a nationalist to begin with? That’s a patriotic American’s biggest fear and he just added a full tank of gas to that fire.
Trump was responding to a question on his decision, after phone calls with the leaders of both Mexico and Canada, to renegotiate rather than completely withdraw from NAFTA. We can hope that he just misspoke, that his nationalism, the foundation of his campaign is not in doubt, but there’s no way to be certain except through his performance.
We get it that President Trump makes the decisions and that he likes to have a wide variety of viewpoints as input and that information comes from people who are labeled as advisors. America, more than any other nation, is a player across the globe, so there are global aspects intrinsic to the job. That’s different from being a globalist. President Trump needs to be aware that the uneasiness exists and statements from him admitting he’s a globalist, regardless of their intention or motivation, aren’t going to be received well by his base.
President Trump doesn’t need to be an isolationist to be a nationalist and an adherent to the promises and the principles that got him elected. Just stick to America first, Make America Great Again, us before them, and we’ll all be fine.
