Trump His 'Nationalist' Remark: 'I'm Proud of This Country'

(Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle")

By    |   Monday, 29 October 2018 10:16 PM

President Donald Trump reiterated he is a self-described nationalist during an interview that aired Monday night, saying he loves his country and puts that above all else.

"I'm proud of this country and I call that 'nationalism.' I call it being a nationalist and I don't see any other connotation than that," Trump told Laura Ingraham on Fox News. "Now, as soon as you make any statement nowadays, with the political correctness world, they make a big deal. I'm not a globalist, but I want to take care of the globe, but first I have to take care of our country.

"I want to help people around the world, but we have to take care of our country, or we won't have a country – including we have to take care of our country at the border."

Trump came under fire for saying recently he is a nationalist, which led his critics to compare his remarks to him being a white nationalist.

He told Ingraham there is a big distinction between the two terms.

"To me, I don't have to clarify," Trump said. "It means I love the country. I look at two things: globalists and nationalists.

"I'm somebody who wants to take care of our country because for many, many years our leaders — you know this better than anybody — our leaders have been more worried about the world than about the United States, and they leave us in a mess — whether it's the wars, whether it's the economy, whether it's debt, whether it's all of the things that they've done, including putting in the wrong Supreme Court Justices. We've really put two great ones in."
