Macron's comments about nationalism:
Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first ... we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace, and what is essential: its moral values."
Macron's premise seems to be that loving one's nation and putting its interests first is somehow synonymous with selfishly turning ones back on the rest of the world. Arguably, charitable giving is a valuable index of how much a nation and its people care about the rest of the world.

Never let the left control the narrative. Truth first.
Did they include the US paying for it’s own defense, and also the gift of defending the rest of the nearly free world, and patrolling the seas to protect free shipping?
“Did they include the US paying for its own defense, and also the gift of defending the rest of the nearly free world, and patrolling the seas to protect free shipping?”
Nope, and that is a good point. Despite that, we are still always among the top nations, if not the top nation in charitable giving - while we get chastised by countries like France - who are not nearly as charitable (France ranked 72 on the list on the latest assessment).
