    She never said he was an isolationist. She said he had a policy of "America first," which were *his own fucking words,* but then he goes on to insult her by sarcastically calling her "friendly" and saying that she must have gotten the idea that he's an isolationist (which was *his assumption,* not her words) from "fake news." Also, where in the hell did he get the idea that America has a weak military? We spend more on our military than any other country on the planet. This man is an asshole, an idiot, and a snake.

    I don't get the morons in the comment section saying he didn't answer the question. She accused him of being "scared of the press" and "being an America first policy supporter" and he simply responded saying that he's a free trader and that he wants everyone to succeed, and that saying otherwise about him would be fake news. Really the only thing he didn't address was his attack on the media, which is extremely justified.

    As an American, I just want to speak for the 0.001% of us that have any form of rational thought, that I am truly sorry for what our rulers have done to you and the rest of the world over the last century.
    No one here observes, let alone learns from, history.
    Try not to blame the normal ppl here. We were raised to be this way. Blame our ruling class and the people they've employed from President down over the past 70+ years.
    It truly is horrible being trapped in this dying land while wishing you were somewhere where those around you weren't mindless, obedient carbon copies that are manipulated by blind faith and fear.
    Some of us still hold onto empathy, and divergent thought like it is the most precious thing in the world.

    He didnt really answer the question, i think he wanted to point out that america is being hurt by the past trade policies and thats what he really cares about. Also the fake news thing, it spreads rumors, it makes people believe things that are not true. There is one thing to have diversity in media and there is just implementing false statements into the minds of our society. Trump was never against the LGBTQ, he was not racist towards the blacks in america. Although the news do not always directly say this but they do make trump look bad for things he never said or did. And then they go hide Hillary's atrocities, refusing to show anything but "positive" about her. Yet they continue to target the Russian hack theories, the trump tax returns (epic fail btw), and generalize what he says to an entire group of people. (Like when he was talking about Rosie odonnell but the media made it look as if he was insulting the entire female gender. Finally, the news fail to inform the Americans about real issues going on around the world and within the deep state of america. All u hear is blah blah trump racist blah blah trump fascist. Wtf we want to know the truth, we need to stayed informed about what is actually going on.

    So basically he gets asked if he doesn't think his "America First" policy is going to weaken the EU and why he is scared of diversity in the news. He answers that he's not an isolationist but he's a free trader AND that free trade is terrible for the US (accumulation of debt, but HELL YEA let's spend more on military) and that he wants fair trade which is beneficial for everyone involved (where do you produce your products, Mr. Trump?). Then he says that the US are a strong company, oups country and that the reporter said he was an isolationist (which she didn't). So good job Mr. Trump, you never answered the question.
