Sen. Jeff Sessions, the incumbent Republican senator from Alabama, wrote an editorial for USAToday entitled, “In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America,” in which he laid out the differences a Trump presidency offered versus that of his presumed opponent, Hillary Clinton.
“For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market,” Sessions began.
Trump was not considered by many a viable candidate for the Republican Party, or the presidency for that matter, when he first announced he was running. However, as the last man standing he is the presumptive nominee, and this means it has become time for Republicans and the nation to really consider him and the good that he will bring to the country.
“In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America. Trump has said that our trade, immigration and foreign policies must be changed to protect the interests of the American workers and our nation,” Sessions argued.
He however did not believe Trump’s assumed opponent will do as much to protect our country as Trump has has promised to do.
“In Hillary Clinton, we have a committed globalist,” Sessions writes. “Clinton was an ardent supporter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership — which surrenders American sovereignty to an international union of 12 countries — and has clearly left the door wide open to enacting the pact if elected.”
That would mean less autonomy for the American government and citizens, of course. Sessions argued that there was only one way to defeat that partnership, and that is to “defeat Hillary Clinton.”
He also argued that Clinton’s immigration stance and plans were dangerous and arguably “the most radical in our history.” With all of the harm illegals have caused over recent years, Clinton’s plans to freeze deportations and halt immigration enforcement would leave the American public vulnerable to more crime and violence.
“She’d expand President (Barack) Obama’s illegal amnesty decree, effectively creating open borders.” Sessions commented.
In defending Trump’s status as a Republican, which many critics are calling into question, Sessions stated:
“Consider just a few of the things President Trump would do after taking the oath: repeal Obamacare; nominate constitutionalist justices; replace Obama’s radical Cabinet appointments; reduce taxes and regulations; produce more American energy; rein in the out-of-control EPA; and cancel Obama’s illegal amnesties.”
At the end of the day Session stated, “The choice is a simple one: Do we want a country that serves our people, or not?”
