A former deputy assistant for national security to President Donald J. Trump told Big League Politics that Americans can expect a continued commitment to keeping campaign promises, especially repealing Obamacare, from the Trump administration moving into the new year.
“He’s kept his promises, whether it’s removing us from the Paris Accord, whether it’s recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, whether it’s crushing ISIS,” said Sebastian L. Gorka, a leading defense expert, who has returned to the Washington-based The Institute of World Politics and he is the author of Defeating Jihad: The Winnable War. The world-renowned counter-terrorism expert spoke at the Student Action Summit on Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Gorka said that the Trump administration has driven a stake through the heart of President Barack H. Obama’s signature legislation by repealing the Obamacare individual mandate in recently-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
“The national security agenda is going to continue with the stabilizing of threats to the United States, continuing the extreme vetting and immigration reform,” the British-born professor said.

Gorka said that there is still work to be done, such as the repeal of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. “The big muscle move, of course, for the next year after the tax reform is going to be Obamacare.”
Now, it is up to the GOP to step up to the plate for the president with a “repeal and replace” package that they have been promising for the last seven years, he said. “So, no big surprises, just keep on trucking.”
Ciara C. Carter, a student from New Mexico attending this year’s Turning Point USA convention, told BLP that she is glad Gorka talked about the impact of open borders on national and economic security. “I’d really love him to jump into strengthening the immigration laws, particularly on the southern border.”
Thomas M. Pastor, a student from Florida, said Gorka is right about Trump winning on his agenda. “I feel like Trump is already on such a great track in fulfilling the promises he made during his campaign.”
President Trump is ‘Terminating’ Relationship with Disgraced W.H.O., Punishing China for Hong Kong Takeover
Trump is striking back against the globalists.
President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city.
“We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” the president said from the White House. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating the relationship.”
Trump claims that he will be “redirecting” the funds that previously went to the WHO toward “other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” He also said China “ignored” their obligations to the WHO when they spread disinformation to them about the nature of the coronavirus.
The WHO taking China at their word resulted in this embarrassing tweet that serves as an eternal reminder of the extreme incompetence of the globalist body:

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.
“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.
“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”
“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.
The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”
“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”
President Trump is getting tough on China and the WHO now that the coronavirus pandemic has subsided a bit. He has not let the crisis distract him from his agenda of ending globalism and putting America first.
