Secure Freedom Minute: Trump’s Executive Order

Secure Freedom Minute

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Ronald Reagan operationalized his strategy for defeating the Soviet Union with a focused effort to cut off its cash-flow. The USSR’s successor as this country’s greatest existential threat to freedom, the Chinese Communist Party, has gone to great lengths to avoid the same fate at the hands of Reagan’s successor: Donald Trump.

Specifically, the CCP employed its own vast capabilities and those of its friends in Wall Street, Washington and myriad front groups across America to oppose Mr. Trump’s reelection and to try to install in the White House “old friends” of China.

Mr. Trump’s administration, however, has just taken a page out of the Reagan playbook.
