Moreover, Trump ensured to mitigate concerns related to illegal immigration and citizenship policies. His statement further included the step of an immediate executive order to halt Automatic Citizenship for the children of illegal residents.

Trump’s step into child protection and human rights activism is unparalleled. His tenacious resolve to address human and child trafficking issues has rarely been matched by any other president or presidential candidate. His will to clamp down on these atrocious practices is clear and unwavering.
President Trump’s bold plans don’t stop at combating child trafficking. He has also voiced out his intention to advance the fight against drug, human, and child traffickers by seeking the deadliest of penalties if re-elected – the death penalty.
His stance on these matters speaks volumes about his commitment to restoring law, order, and justice in society.
In his typical forthright manner, Trump stated, ‘We must reestablish the death sentence for drug traffickers. Furthermore, it shouldn’t stop there, human traffickers as well. As we implement this, we will witness a rapid decline in such atrocious activities.’
His words show a hardline approach to these abhorrent crimes that is bound to resonate with many conservatives.
Expanding on his commitment to the cause, Trump announced that he will be hosting a screening of the movie ‘Sound of Freedom’, which raises awareness against child sex trafficking.
This event is scheduled for July 19 at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, with the film’s producer and lead actors in attendance, clearly demonstrating his commitment to the cause.
Trump’s campaign team released a statement apprising the public of his successful efforts against human trafficking during his presidency. His actions saw a significant 14% rise in human trafficking convictions in 2017 compared to the previous year.
This impressive result was achieved under Trump’s effective leadership strategy.
In 2017, Trump’s appointee for Director of National Intelligence escalated the human trafficking issue to become one of America’s top priorities. This stance was an unprecedented move that showed the nation and the world that these heinous crimes would no longer be overlooked.
In 2018, President Trump made a historic contribution to the fight against human trafficking by becoming the first president to participate in the President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons. Under his watch, no stone was left unturned in combating this outrageous crime.
His presidency saw the implementation of effective measures to annihilate human trafficking. In January 2020, he marked the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act by signing an Executive Order on Combating Human Trafficking and Online Child Exploitation in the United States.
This step included the creation of the first-ever dedicated White House position for combating human trafficking.
During his term, Trump also invited Tim Ballard, an expert in anti-human trafficking, to the White House to outline the importance of his border wall initiative.
Trump built over 450 miles of the robust border wall and introduced solid immigration policies such as Title 42 to prevent these heinous crimes from taking place across America’s southern border.
Under his directive, a record number of measures were legislated to fight human trafficking. Trump signed into law nine bipartisan bills that combat human trafficking at a domestic and global level. His commitment to this cause was conspicuous and continual all through his presidency.
His administration saw the approval of the largest Department of Justice (DOJ) funding package in history to fight human trafficking as well as the doubling of DOJ funding for the same cause. This was an unprecedented move that showcased his relentless pursuit of justice and safekeeping of human rights.
In summary, Trump’s fight against child trafficking is not just commendable but monumental. His achievements in this area showcase his unique ability to rally the resources and the will of a nation to address one of the gravest injustices of our time, making him a remarkable leader in this momentous fight against child trafficking.
