At a rally in Houston Monday night for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, President Donald Trump said this:
“A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much. 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.”

Between these two reports, it’s become increasingly clear that the Trump administration’s language on women’s health is leaving out vital information, at best, and misleading at worst.
“…In country after country, the Trump administration is gutting U.S. support for human rights, the rule of law, and good governance, damaging the overarching credibility of the United States. … On foreign policy, … the administration has dismissed or damaged the global human rights framework. … [The Trump administration] has put in place policies that set back the rights of women and girls around the world. …
