PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S 2019 UN SPEECH AND NATIONAL CONSERVATISM

Fox News on September 24, 2019 in an article commented on Donald Trumps 2019 UN speech. Excerpts below:

President Trump [delivered] his most robust defense yet of his nationalist philosophy.

“Today, I have a message for those open border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of social justice: Your policies are not just, your policies are cruel and evil,” he said, accusing them of promoting human smuggling and the “erasure of national borders.”

He delivered the broadside as part of a message promoting border security, in the U.S. and around the world.

“Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their country first. The future does not belong to globalists, the future belongs to patriots,” he said earlier in the speech. “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.”

He advised member states, “If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. If you want peace, love your nation.”

Trump…said that he wants to avoid “endless wars” but also promised to defend America militarily, if needed.

He used that message to pivot to Iran, urging the Islamic regime to put its people first and to abandon its quest for nuclear weapons and support of terror in the region. He told delegates that the U.S. does not seek conflict with other nations but that “I will never fail to defend America’s interests.”

He accused Iran’s leaders of “fueling the tragic wars in both Syria and Yemen,” and of “squandering their nation’s wealth in a fanatical quest for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.”
“We must never allow this to happen,” he said.

He was given a boost on his hardline stance with Iran on [September 23] when Britain, France and Germany joined the U.S. in blaming Iran for attacks earlier this month on key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.

“All nations have a duty to act, no responsible government should subsidize Iran’s bloodlust,” he said, promising to tighten sanctions if Iran continued its aggression.

On September 24, he also used the speech to address the ongoing trade war with China, saying that at the heart of his vision is “an ambitious campaign to reform international trade.”

“For decades, the international trading system has been easily exploited by nations acting in very bad faith,” he said. “As jobs were outsourced, a small handful grew wealthy at the expense of the middle class.”

In his criticism of other leaders, he also appeared to take a swipe at former U.S. leaders who let China gain international dominance.

“Globalism exerted a religious pull over past leaders, causing them to ignore their own national interests, but as far as America is concerned, those days are over,” he said.

Comment: Another important part of the speech was devoted to the Western Hemisphere. Trump said:

…we are working closely with our friends in the region, including Mexico, Canada, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Panama, to uphold the integrity of borders and ensure safety and prosperity for our people. I would like to thank President Lopez Obrador of Mexico for the great cooperation we are receiving, and for right now putting 27,000 troops on our Southern Border. Mexico is showing us great respect, and I respect them in return.

For all of the countries of the Western Hemisphere, our goal is to help people invest in the bright futures of their own nation. Our region is full of such incredible promise, dreams waiting to be built, and national destinies for all. And they are waiting also to be pursued. Throughout the hemisphere there are millions of hard-working, patriotic young people, eager to build, innovate and achieve.

The Western Hemisphere, in the view of Världsinbördeskriget, has a promising future. As part of the decoupling of US economy from that of China America’s largest trade partners are now Canada and Mexico. A strong economy in all countries of the two American continents could be an alternative to China. Remaining socialist countries like Cuba and Venezuela will have a bright future if they choose free enterprise instead of socialism.
