The Nationalism Versus Globalism Battles Yet to Come

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump sees America as a nation being milked by allies who free ride on our defense effort, as they engage in trade practices that prosper their own peoples at America's expense. Where our elites live to play masters of the universe, Trump sees a world laughing behind America's back, while allies exploit our magnanimity and idealism for their own national ends. The decisive battles between Trumpian nationalism and globalism remain ahead of us. Trump's critical tests have yet to come. And our exasperated president senses this.
