Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly is off to a running start. The Trump Administration has made keeping Americans safe a top priority. After the Obama White House’s weak approach to radical Islamic terrorism, Kelly is looking to reverse course and get tough on terrorism.
Secretary Kelly made remarks at George Washington University and proved how President Trump is putting national defense on the front burner. He said, “As I speak these words the FBI has open terrorism investigations in all 50 states.” This is incredibly important as there have been 37 ISIS linked plots on American soil.
Kelly also pointed out alarming numbers out of Europe. “Experts estimate that perhaps 10,000 citizens of Europe have joined the caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Thousands more are from nations in Asia, Africa and the Western Hemisphere. They have learned how to make IEDs, employ drones to drop ordnance, and acquired experience on the battlefield that by all reports they are bringing back home,” he said.
Secretary Kelly also said that department moral had been drained during the Obama Administration. He told lawmakers to change the laws or “shut up” regarding criticism of President Trump’s travel ban to help keep foreign terrorists out of the country. Sensitive lawmakers got their feelings hurt by Kelly’s strong words of support for his department and the White House.

Terrorism is a concern for many of us. President Obama seemed more concerned with political correctness than protecting Americans from physical harm. It seemed as though he didn’t want to hurt the bad guys’ feelings. Those days are over. The Trump Administration has made this very clear.
Share this if you are glad the Trump White House is combating terrorism!
