Trump’s UN speech rejected globalism and cultural imperialism

It is a brand new era in U.S. foreign policy — gone are the days of “leading from behind” and “apology tours” — as world leaders from Israel to Afghanistan praise America’s more forceful approach to the world under President Trump, as epitomized by his first speech to the United Nations.In his speech Tuesday to the 72nd United Nations General Assembly, Trump declared, “As President of the United States, I will always put America first, just like you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first.”Defying UN, EU, climate change, de-population and other globalists, Trump pledged to respect the “sovereignty” of other nations as they respect ours. This was welcomed by leaders abroad who bristled at Obama’s cultural overreaches, such as the Democratic president’s (and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s) pressure on other nations to embrace “LGBT rights.” (In 2015, one Kenyan legislator warned the visiting Obama not to lecture his nation on “gay rights,” asking him to “appreciate our Christian, Islamic and African traditional values which abhor homosexuality.”)Trump sounded a different note. (See below a 10 minute excerpt from the speech that includes Trump’s comments on national soverienty.)
