Over the weekend, President Trump has signed a new executive order explicitly declaring a national “state of emergency.”
From Conservative Post:
The executive order is full of legal-speak, but Trump also wrote a letter to Congress explaining the order and his reasoning.
That letter reads:
I hereby report that I have issued the enclosed Executive Order (the “order”) declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States posed by serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world.
The order blocks the property and interests in property of persons listed in the Annex to the order. It also blocks the property and interests in property of any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General…
The Annex to the order lists the 13 people Trump is specifically targeting with the order, though others will certainly be impacted by it.
Who these 13 people are is, honestly, irrelevant to most Americans. What IS important is that President Trump is DEAD SERIOUS about Making America Great Again!
