On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed the United Nations and told them in simple terms that the way forward is through independence and patriotism, not globalism.
Trump stood before the General Assembly and laid down to the other nation’s leaders that if they want freedom, then they must embrace their own country and fight for Democracy.
“The free world must embrace it’s national foundations,” said Trump. “It must not attempt to erase them or replace them.”
“The truth is plain to see,” he continued. “If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. And if you want peace, love your nation. Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first.”
“The future does not belong to globalists; the future belongs to patriots,” he said. “The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.”
This was a very pointed statement as, outside of the United States and its battles with border security and Democrats who are pushing for open borders, other countries have also opened their borders to refugees who have, in turn, increased crime and violence and put a burden on the populace and its government.
Moreover, Britain is currently in a pitched battle with the European Union for independence.
Trump has set a very stark example of his words, which he called an “exciting program of national renewal.” This involves forcing other NATO members to pay their fair share instead of the United States carrying most of the cost, as well as the border wall itself.
Judging by the economic prosperity of the United States, it’s hard to argue Trump’s point. The U.S. has only increased in power while other countries considered to be more progressive have run into issue after issue thanks to their globalism.
