Trump's Nationalistic Address

I am weary of Donald J. Trump and his lack of understanding of this complex and volatile world.

I am fearful of his Machiavellian politics: worried about his belief in a rigid and pervasive distinction between “us” and “them.” 

I am weary about someone who glorifies and idealizes himself and a nation as superior to all others. History is filled with failed nationalistic authoritarians who believed other nations were inferior, envious, and ominous. 

I am apprehensive about Trump’s compulsion to extremism, his unpredictability, and his demand for absolute and simple solutions to complicated problems and dilemmas. 

I am troubled by his dangerously autocratic, punitive, and isolated notions of "America First."
