In a recent segment of The McLaughlin Group, Pat Buchanan declared: Open borders is dead in Europe, it’s going to be dead in the U.S. You’re going to see nationalism rising, transnationalism receding… All these powerful movements that had been up against transnationalism are going to begin to prevail.

Buchanan, July 27, 2018: “Make America Great Again!” will, given the astonishing victory it produced for Donald Trump, be recorded among the most successful slogans in political history.

By Pat Buchanan, March 27, 2018: The last man standing between the U.S. and war with Iran may be a four-star general affectionately known to his Marines as “Mad Dog.” Gen.

Pat Buchanan, October 12, 2017: Three decades ago, as communications director in the White House, I set up an interview for Bill Rusher of National Review.
