President Trump Defends Nationalist Label


President Trump opened up about his nationalist status and denied any responsibility for last week's bomb mailings in an interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham Monday night. 

Trump said Cesar Sayoc, the man accused of sending the bombs to several top Democrats and claimed loyalty to Trump, "was insane for a long time." 

He also went on to deny that he had any connections to anti-Semitism after the horrific deadly shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend, citing that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and daughter Ivanka are Jewish. 

"A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much," Trump said at the rally, which was organized to benefit incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz. "And you know what? We can't have that. You know, they have a word. It sort of became old-fashioned. It's called a nationalist. And I say, really, we're not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I'm a nationalist, OK? I'm a nationalist. ... Nationalist. Nothing -- use that word. Use that word, Trump said."

Later in the interview, Trump reiterated that migrants in the Central American caravan making its way through Mexico to the U.S. are "wasting their time" because they will not be let in. 

"They are not coming in. ... We’re not letting them into this country," he said.
