“We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism” Donald J. Trump. In an article for USA Today Senator Jeff Sessions says the choice is simple “Do we want a country that serves our people, or not?”
“For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market.
In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America. Trump has said that our trade, immigration and foreign policies must be changed to protect the interests of American workers and our nation.
In Hillary Clinton, we have a committed globalist. Clinton was an ardent supporter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — which surrenders American sovereignty to an international union of 12 countries — and has clearly left the door wide open to enacting the pact if elected.
There is only one sure way to defeat the TPP, and that is to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Meanwhile, Clinton’s immigration platform is the most radical in our history. Freezing deportations. Ending detentions. Halting enforcement. She’d expand President Obama’s illegal amnesty decree, effectively creating open borders.”
Senator Sessions sums up the article by pointing out Republicans that persist in saying they don’t know whether Trump is conservative are misleading.
“This charge misleads in two ways. First: Mr. Trump’s cautious approach to mass migration, transnational trade commissions and nation-building are, by definition, conservative.
Second, the divide between Trump and Clinton on the role of government could not be more stark. Consider just a few of the things President Trump would do after taking the oath: repeal Obamacare; nominate constitutionalist justices; replace Obama’s radical Cabinet appointments; reduce taxes and regulations; produce more American energy; rein in the out-of-control EPA; and cancel Obama’s illegal amnesties.”
Senator Sessions appears to be in sync with what the Republican base wants. A new Pew Report shows most Republicans align with Trump on Trade and Immigration. Breitbart reports:
“Supporters of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump are backed by most Republican-leaning voters on four of five key issues, according to an analysis of a recent Pew report.
Eighty-four percent of Trump supporters say they support building a wall along the southern border with Mexico, as do 67 percent of all GOP and Republican-leaning voters.
Sixty-seven percent of Trump supporters say free trade has been bad, and so does more than 50 percent of all Republican and right-leaning voters.
On immigration, 69 percent of Trump supporters agreed that immigrants place a burden on the nation, as do 56 percent of all GOP and Republican leaning voters.
On Islam, 64 percent of Trump supporters said they thought Muslims need to be subject to more scrutiny, as do 53 percent of all GOP and Republican leaning voters.
Fifty-four percent of Trump supporters agreed the United States does too much in solving the world’s problems, but only 46 percent of Republican and Republican leaning voters agreed.”
