Trump Score Card
RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM:A
America averaged one serious Islamic terrorist attack a year under previous President Obama’s tenure. What actions will President Trump take to try and stop the continued attacks?
1/27/17: President Trump signed an executive order which included banning Syrian refugees indefinitely. The President stated the decision was based on protecting the safety and security of the American people. This decision came on the heels of a NATO commander stating ISIS is "using the Syrian refugee crisis to ‘mask the movement’ of terrorists infiltrating Europe and the United States" and the Syrian leader stating "some Syrian refugees are ‘definitely’ terrorists"
On 3/6/17: The Trump administration rolled out the second edition of the immigration executive order after the first order was blocked by a 9th circuit court judge.
1/28/17: President Trump signed a memorandum to defeat ISIS. It instructed the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of staff to come up with a plan in 30 days to defeat ISIS. They are an Islamic terrorist organization that gained power after President Obama completed the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in 2011. President Obama then grossly underestimated ISIS by calling them "a JV team of basketball" before they grew to over 30 countries. Why hasn't the Western world been able to defeat ISIS? Let's wait and see what President Trump's administration comes up with. This memorandum is a step in the right direction.
3/22/17: The Department of Homeland Security required passengers on some airlines serving those regions to pack their gadgets—cellphones and medical devices excepted—in their checked bags. The Trump administration confirmed the ban. The restrictions apply to direct flights between the US and airports in eight countries in the Middle East and Africa: Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. This ban was decided after U.S. authorities became convinced that security measures for certain U.S.-bound flights needed to be boosted after conducting a series of tests to determine the credibility of new intelligence.
4/13/17: Keeping true to his word of promising to "obliterate ISIS", President Trump ordered the military to drop the LARGEST (a massive Ordnance Air Blast Bomb) non-nuclear weapon in its arsenal for the first time ever on an ISIS tunnel target in Afghanistan.
7/15/17: ISIS was officially driven from Mosul in harrowing Iraqi effort backed by US. Almost 6 years years after President Obama announced the complete withdrawl of American troops in Iraq (creating a vacuum for the then newley formed ISIS) Iraqi forces backed by the US finally drove ISIS out. "We have made tremendous progress against ISIS – more in the past 6 months than in the years since ISIS became a major threat," a Trump White House statement read.
8/18/17: President Trump signed the Global War on Terrorism War Memorial Act: The bill authorizes the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation to begin the Commemorative Works Act process to establish a National Global War on Terrorism Memorial on Federal land in the District of Columbia.
