At the U.N. General Assembly in New York on Tuesday, President Trump told world leaders to reject “globalism” and to look out for the interests of their own countries first.
“The future does not belong to globalists; it belongs to patriots,” Trump said.
Tuesday marked Trump’s third address to the General Assembly as president. As he has done in the past, Trump used his remarks to the international organization to make the case for his “America first” style of diplomacy that puts nationalism ahead of multilateral efforts.
Since entering the White House, Trump has pulled the U.S. out of several international agreements, including the Paris climate accords and the Iran nuclear deal.
