What Does ‘America First’ mean? Analyzing Trump and Clinton’s Foreign Policy Positions

Hosted by

Presidential candidate Donald Trump gave a speech Wednesday on foreign policy, a day after winning five state primaries. His core philosophy is, according to his remarks, “America first.” Trump condemned globalization and nation-building; he called the foreign policy of the Obama administration "a complete and total disaster." So how do Trump’s foreign policy positions differ from those of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who has been called more hawkish than any of the Republican candidates?
