In the midst of our chaotic 24 hour news cycle, it’s easy for many of society’s most vulnerable citizens to be forgotten. The media often has a tendency to focus on mundane stories, like which Kardashian is currently being cheated on, or what new plot twist has developed in the Stormy Daniels saga.
It’s for this reason that many Americans don’t even bother to watch the news anymore.
Rarely does the spotlight go to the disenfranchised who need it most, and rarer still does it shine on the President when he does something positive.
But for one brief, shining moment, attention was given to both, and even the fake news network CNN was forced to cover an amazing action taken by President Trump this week.
President Donald Trump signed a measure Wednesday aimed at curbing online sex trafficking, marking a rare bipartisan victory in Washington.

It’s worth noting that Obama rarely made the news for fighting for victims of sex trafficking. In fact, it was uncovered in 2016 that his administration was releasing unaccompanied immigrant children into the hands of sex traffickers.
The media was always quick to heap praise on Obama, even though sex trafficking victims were forced to endure unspeakable horrors during his time in the White House.
Perhaps Democratic administrations don’t go after sex crimes and child prostitution rings because an investigation might lead back to prominent members of the Democratic Party. It’s certainly a possibility, given Bill Clinton’s predatory behavior and frequent trips aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express”.
Thankfully, our current president will not tolerate such depraved behavior, and is giving the power, and the spotlight, to the survivors of sex trafficking, where it belongs.
