Trump Declares State of Emergency. IT BEGINS!

By

If you were hoping for a quiet Christmas weekend with little or no major political news, well, then you clearly have forgotten who we elected to the White House.

Over the weekend, President Trump has signed a new executive order explicitly declaring a national “state of emergency.”

At stake is putting an end to human rights abuses and corruption that harm innocent victims around the world and damage American interests and national security.

The executive order is full of legal-speak, but Trump also wrote a letter to Congress explaining the order and his reasoning.

That letter reads:

I hereby report that I have issued the enclosed Executive Order (the “order”) declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world.

The order blocks the property and interests in property of persons listed in the Annex to the order. It also blocks the property and interests in property of any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General…

The Annex to the order lists the 13 people Trump is specifically targeting with the order, though others will certainly be impacted by it.

Their identities are uninteresting to most readers. What’s important is that this president is DEAD SERIOUS not only about making America great again at home, but also about returning America to a true leadership role on the world stage.

Those who previously claimed Trump was an isolationist clearly have no clue.
