“The free world must embrace its national foundations. It must not attempt to erase them or replace them,” Trump said as he began his speech at the UN this morning.
“Looking around, and all over this large, magnificent planet, the truth is plain to see: if you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. And if you want peace, love your nation.”
“Wise leaders put the good of their own people and their own country first.”
“The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots,” Trump said. “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.”
“We stand in solidarity with LGBTQ people who live in countries that punish, jail or execute individuals based upon sexual orientation.”
“Nations have empower women are much wealthier, safer and much more politically stable.”
“It’s therefore vital, not only to a nation’s prosperity, but also is vital to its national security to pursue women’s economic development.”
Trump took a few shots Venezuela saying of its president:
“The dictator Maduro is a Cuban puppet, protected by Cuban bodyguards, hiding from his own people while Cuba plunders Venezuela’s oil wealth to sustain its own corrupt, Communist rule.”
Then Trump ripped the “establishment.” From CNN:
President Trump chastised a “permanent political class” that is “overly disdainful” during remarks at the United Nations on Tuesday, claiming they — along with the media, economic institutions and technology companies — were pushing ” flat-out assaults on our histories, traditions and values.”
The populist message came as Trump’s administration has questioned social media companies for what it claims are anti-conservative biases. Trump said he was working to ensure all voices are heard.
“A small number of social media platforms are acquiring immense power, over what we can see and over what we are allowed to say,” he said.
“A free society cannot allow social media giants to silence the voices of the people,” he went on. “And a free people must never, ever be enlisted in the cause of silencing, cancelling or blacklisting their own neighbors.”
