    eleison got a reaction from Geoff_L in COVID19 Kibosh   
    My family comes "first"... Then my city comes "first".. Then my nation comes "first"... During an emergency, that is how things are and will always be - "selfish" or not.  I live in the USA so Trump's America first is fine by me. Governments should always try and make sure their "constituency" comes first because sometimes there's only so many life rafts on a sinking cruise ship.. So many pieces of bread on the table during a famine.. so many escape pods on a disintegrating space ship...  If my government didn't have my best interest in mind, I would re-elect someone else.  I'm not sure why other countries put their citizens behind other citizens from different countries and then complain about trump.
    The USA is an awesome country especially under Trump.  We are one of the few remaining superpowers.  We feed the world with foods created with American innovation.  We have reduced poverty indirectly across the world.  We have created youtube, the internet, and espoused idea of freedom of speech.  We are awesome.  You Europeans are OK... 😜
    This thread is kinda weird.  I'm not sure why some people get upset that other citizens of other countries are proud of their government.  Or that some people in their own country like their government.  In any case, I'm told I might be getting a few checks from Uncle Sam.  Thank you Trump.
