Abstract

Elizabeth Barrow There is no global anthem. No global currency. No certificate of global citizenship. We pledge allegiance to one flag and that flag is the American flag. This was the statement of American nationalism articulated by President-elect Donald Trump in his first Thank You Tour speech, given on December 1, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio. This one statement, in a speech that marked a return to candidate Trump's isolationist and nationalistic rhetoric (Johnson & Wagner, 2016; Corasaniti & Shear, 2016; Hains, 2016), has alarmed international educators and researchers who fear that this resurgence of nationalism is, at best, ignoring, and at worst, undermining, global education and global citizenship education in the United States. Equally disturbing is the global increase in nationalist rhetoric and actions as countries and nation-states around the world isolate themselves in response to economic, political, and social issues, such as increased refugee immigration: Brexit in the United Kingdom (Taub, 2016); Hungary and Macedonia closing borders (Kingsley, 2015; Huggler & Holehouse, 2016); Russia's annexation of Crimea, grabbing land and territory in the name of nationalism (Arnold, 2016). Nationalism and patriotism have been a part of citizenship education since its inception, but nationalism coupled with an ignorance
