Remarks by President Trump at Listening Session on Domestic and International Human Trafficking

The White House, February 23, 2017

THE PRESIDENT:  Human trafficking is a dire problem, both domestically and internationally, and is one that's made really a challenge.  And it's really made possible to a large extent, more of a modern phenomenon, by what's taking place on the Internet, as you probably know.  Solving the human trafficking epidemic, which is what it is, is a priority for my administration.  We're going to help out a lot.  "Solve" is a wonderful word, a beautiful word, but I can tell you, we're going to help a lot.  Read a complete transcript of President Trump's remarks here. 

Shortly after Trump publicly vowed to fight trafficking, EIE President Donna Rice Hughes released the following statement:

"It is a positive sign that the President’s daughter and close advisor, Ivanka, has taken the lead in the White House to end these atrocities that harm so many women and children. This administration recognizes these unspeakable dangers and confronting it shows great leadership. We standby to help the White House end this exploitation of the most vulnerable in our society. ” See full Press Statement here.
