President Trump powerfully pledged to put an end to the world’s largest modern slave trade, human and child trafficking, in a new Agenda47 video that laid out his vision for eradicating this scourge from America.
He explained, “I was thrilled to host a screening at Bedminster of the important new film, ‘Sound of Freedom,’ about the power of faith in overcoming evil, and in particular, the evil of child trafficking. Big problem. We had it down to the lowest number in many years, just four years ago, and now it’s gone through the roof. Even though the fake news media has tried to ignore it.”
Earlier this week, the president hosted a special screening of the smash-hit independent film at his Bedminster golf resort alongside stars Jim Caviezel, producer Eduardo Verastegui, and the inspiration behind the film’s story, Tim Ballard.
Trump continued, “‘Sound of Freedom’ has been a national sensation and a colossal success at the box office, really big numbers, everyone should see it. This is a very important film and very important movie and it’s a very important documentary all wrapped up in one. It’s really about an issue that has to be discussed.”
Per RSBN, “Sound of Freedom” has raked in more than $100 million in box office sales, defying the odds and exceeding all expectations.
Trump said that during his administration, he worked to combat human trafficking and end modern-day slavery. He added, “In one of my first acts in office, I signed an executive order targeting transnational criminal organizations that traffic and exploit innocent people. I signed the Frederick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Reauthorization Act, authorizing $430 million to fight sex and labor trafficking.”
He also noted that he signed legislation that targeted foreign countries that were not meeting the standards for eliminating human trafficking. “I also signed into law the Abolish Human Trafficking Act, which strengthened programs supporting survivors and provided more resources for ending modern slavery,” he said.
Trump warned that “modern slavery” was very much alive, and reminded Americans that while he was in office, he kickstarted the very first White House position that was “solely focused on combating human trafficking.”
He additionally pointed out that securing the U.S. southern border was a big part of stopping human traffickers’ direct pipeline in and out of the country.
With a victorious win in the 2024 general election, Trump promised to do the following to continue his fight against the evils of human trafficking:
- End the “Biden border nightmare that traffickers are using to exploit vulnerable women and children,’
- Wage war on the cartels,
- Use Title 42 to “end the child trafficking crisis by returning all trafficked children to their families in their home countries without delay,”
- Urge Congress to pass legislation that human traffickers caught in the act of their heinous crimes receive the death penalty.
He concluded, “I want to thank Eduardo, Jim, Tim Ballard, and everyone else involved in this film for their incredible efforts and their great genius. Together, we will end the scourge of human trafficking, and we will defend the dignity of human life.”
