Re: Otherwise you'd be speaking German

There is another angle to this idea, though I agree with what you have said about Europe.

In the 1930s and 1940s (and beyond) fascism and Nazi loyalty was as American as a proverbial apple pie. Never mind Hitler and his Third Reich were held in political and moral disdain by the Roosevelt administration.* There was a substantial counter culture of loyalists to Hitler and his throughout the United States during Depression era and into the WWII years.

Re: Otherwise you'd be speaking German

Up to a point NB nationalism can be useful. Trump hopefully can tap into American can-do, and lead us all to greatness.

If it takes someone with Trump's oratory skills vs Reagan's or Obama's or JFK's so be it.

Look what happened in America. Reagan gave away the store to the Japanese, Clinton to the​ NAFTA's, and Bush / Obama to China and India.

In that aspect nationalism went out the window and buy / hire American as well.
