Trump: ‘I’m A Nationalist And A Globalist.’ Wait, What?

On Thursday, President Trump told The Wall Street Journal that despite rumors of factions in his White House – a nationalist populist faction led by Steve Bannon, an establishment Republican faction led by Reince Priebus, and a Democratic-Goldman Sachs faction led by Jared Kushner and Gary Cohn – all was well. Why? Because he contains multitudes:
Mr. Trump dismissed talk about a split inside his White House between aides with a nationalist or globalist orientation. “Hey, I’m a nationalist and a globalist,” he said. “I’m both. And I’m the only one who makes the decision, believe me.”
Like Faye Dunaway in Chinatown, he’s a sister and a mother, a man of many attributes. Never mind the fact that he railed against “globalists” on the campaign trail for well over a year, characterizing free trade as “globalist” and saying that the media was in thrall to “globalist” manipulators. Never mind that he said that nationalism was inherently opposed to globalism – he tweeted this during the campaign, for example:
Hillary says things can't change. I say they have to change. It's a choice between Americanism and her corrupt globalism. #Imwithyou
