President Trump spoke to the United Nations General Assembly today in New York City, and he used a couple words that Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah finds troubling:
Chilling to hear Trump use “sovereignty” and “patriotism” as dogwhistles in his #UNGA speech.
Gives rhetorical ammunition for the nationalistic parties around the world who want to keep immigrants and refugees out.

Oh, the triggering.
Can't understand why people find the media contemptible. https://t.co/iYse4xvLaY

It’s a mystery!
That's a ridiculous statement. Sovereignty and patriotism are fundamental to a free society. I would think the vast majority of Americans believe in patriotism and self-determination. https://t.co/4nJ6YnlpNs
