“The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots,” President Donald Trump said in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 24.
“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.”
In addition to praising isolationism, Trump spelled out the policy changes at home and abroad since his election to the world’s most powerful office.
Whether you agree or disagree with the president’s views and directives, it is important that American voters know exactly where he and his administration stand.
And, some of the president’s evangelical supporters might be surprised to see him voice unabashed support for LGBTQ rights.
