Good episode? Give it some love!
In his address to the World Economic Forum in Davos, President Trump turned to a slogan he trumpeted during his campaign and his inaugural address. But this time, he spoke of “America First” almost exclusively in terms of trade policy. In the next edition of “Truth, Politics and Power,” host Neal Conan asks whether the slogan more accurately describes a nationalist revision of American foreign policy that threatens to make the world more chaotic and more dangerous. Plus we revisit interviews on the original America First movement, when the famous aviator Charles Lindbergh campaigned to keep the US on the sidelines of the Second World War and on the issue that underlies much debate on US foreign Policy since the 1890s - intervention. “America First” on the next Truth Politics and Power.
