Trump just smacked John Kerry with news that will destroy a UN scheme
Since taking office, Trump has been unafraid of taking on even the biggest of his enemies.
Among them is the UN, which has been cooking up a horrible scheme in tandem with John Kerry.
But Trump just smacked Kerry with massive news that will destroy the UN’s biggest scheme.
Trump is unapologetic about being a nationalist who loves his country — and loathes globalism.
But in the last administration, the actions of Barack Obama and his lieutenants indicated they felt exactly the opposite.
John Kerry, as Obama’s Secretary of State, did all he could to destroy American sovereignty and the Second Amendment in order to help the United Nations implement global gun control by putting his signature on the anti-gun UN Small Arms Treaty.
Even without ratification, Kerry’s signature was a powerful symbol of U.S. support for the Treaty, and left the door open for its full implementation.
But last week, Trump publicly declared to gun rights supporters that he is un-signing the Treaty and leaving it all together.
“President Donald Trump said that his administration is withdrawing from a global arms treaty that set rules for sales and transfers of small arms, missile launchers and warships.
“My administration will never surrender American sovereignty to anyone. My administration will never ratify the UN Arms Treaty,” Trump said Friday at a National Rifle Association conference in Indiana. “We’re taking our signature back.”
The NRA, a key constituency for Trump, has long opposed the Arms Trade Treaty, saying it infringes on gun owners’ rights, even though the U.S. never ratified the agreement.
“I hope you’re happy,” the president said.
The White House was concerned that future revisions of the treaty could have created new exposure to the Second Amendment rights, according to a senior administration official who requested anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The treaty will be open for amendments in 2020.”
This is huge news for U.S. gun owners who have been under the threat of ratification since 2013, when Kerry signed the Treaty and it was sent to the Senate for ratification.
But now it is all over, and gun control supporters are back to square one in their plot to force global gun control by making America adopt the scheme.
Now, with this major act of defiance toward the UN, some are hoping Trump will take things a step further and leave the UN altogether.
