Senator Mitt Romney Laughs at the Term ‘America First’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) stated that he finds “America first,” a popular Republican Party slogan concerning U.S. foreign policy, laughable.

Romney stated earlier this week in an interview with MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour with Stephanie Ruhle” that the GOP’s increasing isolationism is “unimaginable” in light of its historical leaders.

Romney argued that the term, which former President Trump popularized, “flows” in from talk radio and television, where the party’s constituency embraces “outrageous” ideas.

“Many in our party have followed that populist streak, which is, ‘Hey, stop worrying about the rest of the world, just worry about what’s going on here.’ What they’re forgetting is that we are connected to the rest of the world, that our economy is connected to the rest of the world. That if we had had that attitude then, you know, Germany would’ve ended up ruling the world, all right.”  Romney said.

“We’re involved in the world out of our own self-interest, and I laugh at the phrase America first. I know it typically means isolationism, but really, America is putting ourselves first when we’re involved in the world, when we stop bad people.” he continued.
