As early as a month before the November presidential election in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump raised the issue of global and national child sex trafficking rings.
In a Tweet on October 8, he noted “Got to do something about these missing children grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents – fast trial, death penalty.”
According to Townhall columnist Liz Crokin, a strong advocate for sex crime victims, the issue gained no traction with the mainstream news media (MSM). At the time, pedophile arrests were not a high priority for law enforcement.
Statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show fewer than 400 sex trafficking arrests were made in 2014.
