BREAKING : More Promises Kept! Trump Fulfilling “Law and Order” Campaign Promise

Love him or not, no one can say President Trump isn’t making good on his campaign promises.

He recently signed executive orders designed to fight crime and his attorney general, Jeff Sessions was sworn in.

These moves, along with his recent meeting with law enforcement leaders, are allowing President Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of “law and order.”

From Daily Caller

In President Obama’s last year in office, there was a bipartisan initiative to reduce sentencing for drug criminals. This effort, much like people’s hope for a “libertarian moment” in the 2016 election, seems to be put on hold during the Trump administration.

Trump’s executive order on crime creates a task force to find ways to reduce violent crime, calls for Attorney General Sessions to develop a strategy to more effectively prosecute people who target police officers and orders the federal government focus its efforts on transnational criminal organizations, specifically drug cartels.

The orders call for increased deportations of members of gangs such as MS-13 and leaves open the possibility of mandatory minimum sentences for violence against police officers. The Koch-funded Cato Institute published a blog post criticizing these orders saying, “supporters of limited, constitutional government ought to be concerned about the orders that Trump signed yesterday.”
