Make no mistake — Donald Trump’s words are carefully chosen

“America First” is Anti-American

“America First” is the most deceptive phrase in an era of dog-whistle politics. The slogan began in the 1880s but didn’t become popular until Woodrow Wilson used it as a way to keep the United States out of the war in 1915. He used America First as a way to navigate a complicated minefield of politics, essentially saying that America will lead the way by staying neutral.
