america first

Mr Trump, in his inauguration speech and often during his campaign used the term "America First" to describe his governing principle. Well, I'm old enough to have witnessed the America First movement of the 1930s and so cringe every time I hear those words. Bolstered by speakers such as Father Coughlin and Lindbergh, it was isolationist, anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi. Very distasteful.
