Unlike most former Presidents, Donald Trump still provides worthwhile policy pronouncements.
And he continues to push back against Big Government, Big Tech, and Big Media.
Now Trump just proposed these major changes that could save thousands of American lives.
Fentanyl is taking countless American lives
Fentanyl has flooded into America and has quickly risen to the number one cause of death for adults 18-45 in the United States.
There’s not even a close second.
In 2020 alone, more people overdosed on fentanyl than died from COVID, cancer, car accidents, and suicide combined.
The drug has been imported to the U.S. in increasing amounts due to the large number of border crossings along the US-Mexico border.
Border crossings made possible by the Biden administration’s immigration policies.
And the drug is often carried by drug mules in the employ of dangerous drug cartels.
According to ICE, a Mexican national was just sentenced last October for attempting to bring nearly 388.93 pounds of fentanyl into the US at the Otay Mesa Port in November, 2021.
And the U.S. Attorney’s office in Southern California reports that U.S. Customs in San Diego and Imperial counties seized over 5,000 pounds of fentanyl in the first nine months of 2022.
Trump promises to “wage war on the cartels”
The numbers are out of control and that’s why President Trump is speaking out about the issue.
Trump promised if he returns to the Presidency that he will show the cartels “no mercy,” promising to use the full force of the U.S. military to squash the cartels—comparing them to ISIS terrorists.
“When I am President, it will be the policy of the United States to take down the cartels, just as we took down ISIS and the ISIS caliphate,” he said declaring that the cartels “have been waging war on Americans and it’s now time to wage war on the cartels.”
Trump promised to deploy “all necessary military assets including the U.S. Navy” to stop the trafficking of drugs to the United States via international and American waters.
Cartels and traffickers “will never sleep soundly again”
He said he would “make appropriate use of special forces, cyber warfare, and other overt and covert actions to inflict maximum damage on cartel leadership, infrastructure, and operations.”
Trump vowed to designate the cartels as global terrorist organizations to restrict their access to financial institutions.
“Millions and millions of families and people are being destroyed. When I am back in the White House, the drug kingpins and vicious traffickers will never sleep soundly again,” he said.
Trump took aim at Biden, showing his clear intentions with the speech.
Biden is siding “with the cartels”
He accused Biden of siding “against the United States and with the cartels.”
He said that “Biden’s open border policies are a deadly betrayal of our nation” and reminded everyone of the nearly 200,000 drug overdoses since Biden was inaugurated.
Trump made his stunning statement on January 5, alongside Biden who delivered a speech on the migrant crisis.
Biden focused his speech on helping people legally migrate to the US.
Most Americans would like to see a stop to fentanyl pouring across our border.
Biden might want to listen to Trump’s speech and use some of his ideas.
