I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.
I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.
This is huge.
Social media companies are the entities which will corruptly assist human-rights-abusing corrupt foreign governments, in order to corruptly gain access to their markets. Google, facebook, and Twitter all assist brutal regimes find their dissidents, in return for being allowed to operate in those nations.
This is the opening shot in a major new front in the war on leftism. I thought anti-trust was the way to go, but as always, the God Emperor was three steps ahead of everyone. This is instantaneous, and attacks their resources. Stroke of the pen, law of the land.
