You keep tweeting AMERICA FIRST! without explanation

So I started to wonder what you mean by this.

Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we put 14,000 immigrant children in cages because they came here seeking our help?

That we let Russia attack our elections without retribution?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we give validation to brutal dictators in North Korea and let them develop nuclear weapons while we lie about it?

Does it mean we let Saudi Arabian princes murder American resident journalists with impunity?

Does it mean we suppress votes?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean we engage in trade wars that result in our farmers being unable to sell crops?

Does it mean that we give corporations massive tax breaks knowing that it will neither help the economy or American workers?

Does it mean that we ignore climate change?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we watch racism, antisemitism and hate crimes increase dramatically while cutting the funding to combat them?

Does it mean we sue to end medical coverage for those with pre-existing conditions?

Or we put troops on the border as political stunts?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that our children aren’t safe from being massacred by gun violence during math class?

Or that judges should be critiqued based on their ethnicity, or who appointed them?

Perhaps it means we insult war heroes and their families?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we appoint corrupt people to run our government?

And sometimes make illegal appointments?

Does it mean we seek to imprison political rivals? When our daughters engage in the same conduct?

Does it mean we ban people who practice other religions?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we lie about groups of people migrating here to escape violence and penury, calling them criminals?

And that we send armed troops to meet them, with authority to shoot and kill them even though they’re unarmed?

That we verbally abuse our allies?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we vilify people coming here to seek asylum and close our borders to them, belying our tradition of immigration?

Or that we belittle members of Congress with infantile twists of their names?

Or that we don’t legislate-just sign executive orders?
Does AMERICA FIRST mean that we enrich ourselves at the expense of our citizens?

And criticize an investigation that has racked up dozens of convictions?

Or that we call the press the enemy of the people when millions across the world are actually trying to destroy us?
Are these some of the things that you mean when you tweet



Because if not, maybe you should clarify.
