I agree about ending aid to countries who hate us. We should also stop buying product from countries who hate us. We can start with the Muslim countries.
We don't have 16T in debt just because of foreign aid you dolt. 15 almost 16% of the domestic GDP going towards welfare and entitlements...almost half of the country not paying taxes...and this President racking up more debt in 4 years than all of his predecessors combined have given us the number you cited.

And I do know the difference between the two. And what you are advocating is isolationist.
1. Whether it is 1% or 50% of our debt is irrelevant. We are broke. We have to stop giving money away.

3. Explain to me how wanting trade relationships and not entangling alliances is isolationism.
