This is what Trump’s ‘America First’ foreign policy will look like – and it’s very confusing

24 Jan

“From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first”, Donald Trump declared, setting down what is supposed to be the guiding principle of his administration in an inaugural speech bereft of statesmanship but full of threats and invectives.

But what does “America first” mean when it comes to foreign and defence policy? The words are not new: they were much used by the isolationist movement which tried to keep the US out of the Second World War, with a pro-German and anti-Semitic stance taken by some like its poster boy, the aviator Charles Lindbergh.
