DYNAMIC DUO: Trump and Sessions Crack Down On Crime Immediately After Swearing In

Never let it be said that the new Trump administration lets grass grow under its feet.

Immediately after swearing in Jeff Sessions as the new Attorney General, Trump signed three executive orders outlining his priorities for the criminal justice system.

UPI has the details:

Preventing Violence against Law Enforcement Officers

Trump issued this order in response to an increase in attacks on police officers in recent years. It calls for enhanced protection of federal, state, tribal, and local law officers.

The order also asks for new legislation to “define new federal crimes, and increase penalties for existing federal crimes” — and evaluate current laws and grant funding programs in the Justice Department to determine how well they ensure officers’ safety.

… Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety

This executive order submits Trump’s policy to reduce crime in the United States.

“A focus on law and order and the safety and security of the American people requires a commitment to enforcing the law and developing policies that comprehensively address illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and violent crime,” the order states.

… Transnational Organizations and International Trafficking

This order outlines the administration’s intent to crack down on foreign-based crime — particularly drug and human trafficking.

“These organizations derive revenue through widespread illegal conduct, including acts of violence and abuse that exhibit a wanton disregard for human life,” the order says. “The trafficking by cartels of controlled substances has triggered a resurgence in deadly drug abuse and a corresponding rise in violent crime related to drugs.”

Here’s the moment that will hopefully be heard around the world:

None of these actions or orders could have come at a better time.

It’s going to be fun to watch this team clean up the crime that has tarnished our country for the last eight years.
