On September 27, 2020, an anchor on CGTN Arabic TV (China) discussed a political commentary that was published by Star China Media. She said that according to the commentary, the term "America First" poses a threat to world peace, and U.S. President Donald Trump's remarks at the recent U.N. General Assembly Session were a clear demonstration of the selfishness, hegemony, and unilateralism embodied by this term.

Host: "Star China Media published a commentary titled 'The Term 'America First' Poses a Threat to World Peace.' According to the commentary, during the 75th session of the U.N. General Assembly, the American President delivered a speech that combined arrogance, bias, and lies. He spoke about the Iran nuclear issue, the fight against terrorism, and the sharing of NATO's military expenses. This demonstrated the selfishness and hegemony of the term 'America First.' It caused wide-spread disgust in the international community.


"According to the commentary, the world realized from the U.S. President's speech at the General Assembly that the term 'America First' embodies unilateralism and hegemony. The world realized that some American politicians spare no effort in turning 'America First' into an American threat. This influences the world order and threatens world peace. According to the commentary, against this background, the current session of the U.N. General Assembly called upon the international community to reiterate its commitment to multilateralism. This is considered to be a united position against unilateralism, according to the commentary."
