Now We Finally Know What America First Means: Peace For Our Time!

Donald Trump, 2018 [Fox News interview on NATO Article 5]:

Mr. Carlson moved to his next prompt: “So, let’s say Montenegro, which joined [NATO] last year, is attacked. Why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack? Why is that?”

“I understand what you’re saying,” Mr. Trump responded. “I’ve asked the same question.” “Tiny” Montenegro, he continued, has “very aggressive people. They may get aggressive and congratulations, you’re in World War III.”

Fox News interview, reported in NYT July 18, 2018

Neville Chamberlain,1938 [broadcast on the Czechoslovakia crisis with Nazi Germany]:

"How horrible, fantastic, incredible it is that we should be digging trenches and trying on gas-masks here because of a quarrel in a far away country between people of whom we know nothing."

Broadcast (27 September 1938), quoted in "Prime Minister on the Issues", The Times (28 September 1938), p. 10
