ABC’s Moran: ‘America First’ Has Been Defined Differently By Trump, But Has ‘Anti-Semitic’ Overtones

During ABC’s coverage of the Inauguration on Friday, ABC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Terry Moran stated “America first,” while it has been defined differently by President Donald Trump carries “anti-Semitic” overtones from the 1930s, and carries “very ugly echos in our history.”

Moran said, “America first” is “a loaded term in American history. Now, he defined it here as total allegiance to the United States of America, and it is something…this is why he was sent here, by people who want to hear that message of America first. However, it carries with it overtones from the 1930s, when an anti-Semitic movement saying, we don’t want to get involved in Europe’s war. It’s the Jews’ fault in Germany. Charles Lindbergh led them. It is a term, as he defined it his way, but the words carry very ugly echos in our history.”
