TRUMP ABROAD: The President Promotes ‘AMERICA FIRST’ at G7 Summit in Canada

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.08.18

The President traveled to Canada Friday to meet with world leaders at the G7 summit in Quebec; defending his “America First” trade policy at the international meeting before heading to Singapore for his historic negotiation with Kim Jong Un.

The Commander-in-Chief vowed to promote his key campaign promises while meeting with global leaders over the weekend, saying he was looking forward to “straightening out unfair trade deals.”

“Looking forward to straightening out unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries. If it doesn’t happen, we come out even better!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come after the leaders of Canada and France severely criticized his decision to enact hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum, with French President Macron warning the G7 could quickly become the G6.

AMERICA FIRST: DHS Moves Forward on 'Extreme Vetting'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.13.17

The Department of Homeland Security is moving forward on “extreme vetting” measures for those seeking to enter the United States; unveiling revised procedures on Monday that would require people to undergo in-person interviews before being granted entrance into the nation.

The new guidelines require -for the first time- face-to-face interviews for individuals seeking permanent residence status in the United States. The strict rules will be applied to those already in the US on business visas who are applying to remain in the country, as well as asylum seekers hoping to bring family members to the United States.

“This is the base for building extreme vetting,” said a former employee familiar with the new procedures.

“You can only vet people if you have information, and one of the best ways to get information is to talk to people and then compare that info to objective info you get from other places,” he added. “If you don’t have these interviews you’re missing a fundamental step in the vetting process.”

The President has routinely called for “extreme vetting” for those seeking entry into the United States.

“Those given a high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values,” President Trump said during his speech to Congress earlier this year. “That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe and to keep those out who would do us harm.”

AMERICA FIRST: Trump Announces STEEL IMPORT TARIFFS

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.01.18

President Trump unveiled stiff import tariffs on steel and aluminum Thursday, making good on his campaign promise to rebuild American industry in the face of cheap and unregulated foreign goods.

The President announced the new trade guidelines during a meeting with industry experts, many of whom told the President it was nearly impossible to compete with underpriced metals flowing into the country from Asia.

“What’s been allowed to go on for decades is disgraceful,” Trump told industry leaders. “And when it comes to a time when our country can’t make aluminum and steel, and somebody said it before and I will tell you, you almost don’t have much of a country. Because without steel and aluminum, your country is not the same. We need it. We need it even for defense.”

“We need great steel makers. Great aluminum makers for defense. So, we will probably see you some time next week. We will be signing it in. You have protection for the first time in a long while and you are going to regrow your industries. That’s all I’m asking. You have to regrow your industries,” added the President.
