Trump Battles the Globalists on Immigration and Trade

In a foreign policy speech on April 27, Donald Trump promised that “we will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism.” That sentiment is toxic to mega-donor globalists who support many Republican candidates. “I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down,” Trump continued. “Under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs. Americans must know that we’re putting the American people first again.”

When Trump vows to “put Americans first,” the globalists complain about “protectionism” – as if there were something wrong with protecting American jobs and economic interests. “On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy, the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority,” Trump said. “Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours, and we – while being fair to them – must start doing the same.”

In a June 22 speech in New York, Trump intensified his attack on globalist money interests: “We’ll never be able to fix a rigged system by counting on the same people who have rigged it in the first place. The insiders wrote the rules of the game to keep themselves in power.” “It’s not just the political system that’s rigged, it’s the whole economy,” Trump continued. “It’s rigged by big donors who want to keep wages down. It’s rigged by big businesses who want to leave our country, fire our workers, and sell their products back into the United States with absolutely no consequences.”

We’ve waited a long time for a Republican candidate to express these pro-American views, but Donald Trump’s victory proves they are what the voters want to hear.
