Human trafficking is a global problem, in which President Trump has brought the issue up time and time again while reinstating his commitment to combat the issue.

The reality is that the President speaks out more about the problem than any other president in history. It is clear Trump is committed to making sure that his administration and the FBI work together cohesively and are hard at work daily in rescues. While the embattled FBI has it's own issues with recovering under the damaged reputation of Comey and McCabe, many men and women among the administration play a role in creating a better society by saving kids from the horrific practice of trafficking.
