FAST FIVE: Trump Understands The Important Difference Between Nationalism And Globalism

While benevolent imperialism can create better conditions over a period of time, humanity's instincts will always lean towards freedom and self-governance.
Certainly nationalism's could-be bastard child of chauvinism can give root to imperialistic tendencies.
