Trump's record on human trafficking a stand-out at RNC

Utah AG Sean Reyes took the stage on the fourth and final night of the RNC to offer support for President Donald Trump in battling against human trafficking.


Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes took the stage on the fourth and final night of the Republican National Convention (RNC) to offer support for President Donald Trump, drawing attention to his "warrior roots" in battling against human trafficking.

Reyes began his speech by saying that he was a proud descendent of warriors from his Hawaiian, Filipino, Japanese, and Spanish heritage. He said that he has "channeled" his warrior roots in an effort to fight against human trafficking, noting that he "was able to lead some of the largest human trafficking prosecutions in America... and travel to foreign countries, working with law enforcement and NGOs to dismantle trafficking networks."

"Young girls and women, sold into sex slavery," Reyes said. "Young boys and men forced to labor servitude. Illegal adoptions, organ harvesting, human life utterly debased.

"President Donald Trump is a fierce warrior against human trafficking. How do I know? Early in 2017, I had occasion to visit with him about our rescues. He asked insightful questions, expressed deep concern for victims. Overwhelmed with compassion, he promised to attack this evil.

"President Trump summoned Ivanka and leaders from his cabinet, directing resources and hundreds of millions of dollars for raising awareness, liberating victims, prosecuting predators, empowering survivors."

Reyes went on to say that the Trump administration has done more than any other administration in modern history to fight against human trafficking, adding that Trump's stance was an example of a "promise kept."

Trump has set aside "billions of dollars," Reyes said, to combat the opioid epidemic. Reyes mentioned that the president signed a bill that created a phone number similar to 911 that was specifically geared toward those struggling with mental health.

Reyes pivoted to a personal anecdote about his father, who lost his fight to cancer. "He had by his bedside his scriptures, family photos, and a pen President Trump gave me to give him. Dad loved that pen. It represented freedom to him. The freedom that only exists when someone is willing to fight for it. To my father, President Trump is that ultimate warrior, fighting for our freedom."

He mentioned that the liberal media and elite have attempted to convince Americans that the US is not as great as it once was, but added that the left's message was simply not true. Reyes said that he has engaged with some of the marginalized groups on earth, and that they "love America" and "love Trump" because he is fighting for their freedom and America's freedom.
