– So, hello everyone. It’s a pleasure and an honor to be here. And I want to use the opportunity to talk about the new challenges that we’ll face, all of us, all humans, in the 21st century.

Trump’s EPIC ANTI-GLOBALIST SPEECH at the UN: The Great Reawakening of Nations

All responsible leaders have an obligation to serve their own citizens, and the nation state remains the best vehicle for elevating the human condition.

Beware The Tech Utopians | Globalism 2
