GOP front-runner Donald Trump seems to be gearing up for the general election, and on Wednesday he gave a speech about his “America first” policy when it comes to international affairs, according to the BBC.

“We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism,” Trump said about trade agreements, which he said “tie us up and bring America down.

As Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared headed for a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, MSNBC host Chris Matthews pondered whether President Donald Trump's re-election might be better for the Democratic establishment than the Vermont senator's multiracial, multigenerational movement taking over the party.

"I'm wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?" said Matthews. "Maybe that's too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they'd rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like."
