    Default Trump: I'm a nationalist, but not a white nationalist

    Trump is a white nationalist?!!

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday doubled down on his self-characterization as a "nationalist," rejecting claims that the word is code for "white nationalist" and adding that he meant he supported American economic interests over those of other countries.

    "I've never heard that theory about being a nationalist. I've heard them all," Trump responded to a reporter who asked if the word was code for white nationalist. "But I'm somebody that loves our country. When I say a nationalist, I don't like it when Germany is paying 1 percent of GDP for NATO, and we're paying 4.3 percent. I don't like that."

    Trump called himself a nationalist Monday night at a rally for Sen. Ted Cruz's reelection campaign in Houston. Trump's critics had long used the term to disparage the president as chauvinistic and parochial, but he's taken ownership of the word with pride.

    Default Why Donald Trump Declaring Himself A ‘Nationalist’ Is So Loaded

    The president, of all people, knows the dark connotations of this word.

    In one of the more jarring moments from President Donald Trump’s campaign rally Monday night, he proudly declared himself a nationalist.

    “It’s called a nationalist,” Trump said during his Houston rally when rebuking globalist foreign policy. “And I say, really, we’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, OK? I’m a nationalist.”

    It’s clear he knows the word is loaded. In its mildest implication, Merriam-Webster defines it as a belief system “placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations.” But it’s been prominently used by white supremacists in recent years to emphasize that some countries or regions should be defined by a white racial identity ― a trend Trump is well aware of given the rise of news about the ideology during his presidency.

    Abortion rights dogma can obscure human reason & harden the human heart so much that the same person who feels
    empathy for animal suffering can lack compassion for unborn children who experience lethal violence and excruciating
    pain in abortion.

    Unborn animals are protected in their nesting places, humans are not. To abort something is to end something
    which has begun. To abort life is to end it.
