Nationalism Opposes Patriotism?

Recently Macron countered in asserting "Nationalism" is the opposite of "Patriotism."
Agree?

I am a progressive human being, a World Citizen, NOT-a-theist and not religious.

Nationalism has dynamically (as language does) been associated with fascists such as Hitler, white supremacy and the lines have been blurred. Obviously Trump couldn't just say he was a patriot, because dog whistles are what he sends to the furthest reaches of hate filled fascists.
