Over the last eight years Americans watched as the security of the United States declined.
We watched as innocent civilians, both at home and throughout the world, have been brutally attacked and killed in the name of Islam.
Chattanooga. London. Boston. Orlando. San Bernardino. Paris. Minnesota.
We watched as American lives were put at risk by weak and misguided policies that supported the Muslim Brotherhood; caved to Islamist regimes and dictators; tied the hands of U.S. law enforcement; and drastically weakened our military.
We watched as our nation became weaker, less respected, and more dangerous with each passing day.
We hoped for a change.
And on November 8, 2016, we said “enough is enough” and instituted that change by electing Donald J. Trump as our 45th president.
President Trump has promised the American people that national security will be a top priority, and during his first 100 days in office he has shown the world that he means business.
The job ahead of him won’t be easy, especially with an unprecedented level of hate and vitriol by the mainstream media, all groups on the left, and even some within his own party.
But to the voters watching, how refreshing. A president that can look past such distractions and get to business; a president that means what he says, and does what he promises.
Though there is much work to be done, by his 100th day in office this Saturday, President Trump has already taken much-needed steps to make our nation safe and respected again. Some examples include:
- Ordering a freeze on, and study of, immigration from areas compromised by terrorism;
- Increasing the number of immigration enforcement personnel;
- Standing firm with law enforcement officers;
- Responding to a tyrant’s chemical attack against his own people, including women and children, by launching a targeted strike on a Syrian airfield;
- Placing travel restrictions on countries compromised by terrorism;
- Instituting new sanctions on Iran; and
- Calling for an increase on defense spending, so that our military personnel have everything they need.
As we noted, there is still much to be done to protect our nation and the democratic freedoms afforded to its citizens. For example,
It is far past time for the Muslim Brotherhood to be declared a foreign terror organization.
It is far past time for Hamas front groups in the U.S. like CAIR to stop hiding under the guise of protecting Muslim civil liberties and called out for who they really are, and banned.
It is far past time to stop money from hardworking American families from funding jihadists and their families.
It is far past time to stop radical Imams from infiltrating our prisons and pumping hate into the hearts of the incarcerated.
These are but a few of the issues that we look to the Trump Administration to address. We have confidence that over the next four years they will do so.
ACT for America’s more than half-a-million members steadfastly support President Trump’s current national security efforts, and we will continue to work tirelessly in towns and communities across the nation to help him achieve his goal of making America safe, secure…, and GREAT again.
