Okay, that was pretty darn cool.
President Trump announced at the NRA Meeting today that he was ordering the Senate to stop the ratification process for the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty sign by President Obama. They will send it back to the Oval Office without ratifying it, at which point the President promises to “dispose of it” properly.
This is a big win for the NRA and gun owners who feared the treaty represented a step towards complete international oversight of the 2nd Amendment. Whether that’s true or not is up for debate, but now it’s not even going to be a valid debate.
How the President did it was very cool. He signed the document in front of “many, many witnesses” in attendance at the meeting. The crowd erupted as he pulled out his pen and proceeded in theatrical manner to sign and display his decree.
Now that the Mueller investigation is over, the President is back in full form reacting to crowds and inspiring conservatives with his actions and style. It’s going to be fun watching him throughout the 2020 election season.
