The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) defines human trafficking as a crime and a form of modern-day slavery involving the exploitation of children and adults for commercial gain, most commonly in the form of forced labor and commercial sexual exploitation, such as the sexual enslavement of children for child porn and for pedophiles.

Mere days after the inauguration of Donald John Trump as America’s 45th President, the DHS, under its new director (ret.) Marine Corps General John Kelly (who is now Trump’s chief of staff), released a curious 29-second PSA (public service announcement) video on human trafficking which prominently featured pizza and a pizzeria.

Given Pizzagate — the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network of Democratic Party élites in D.C. who communicate with each other via email with pedophile code words such as “pizza” and other food items — the DHS video can be understood as an unspoken message to pedophiles and child sex traffickers that the new Trump administration intends to go after them.

The DHS’ human trafficking PSA video was followed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions‘ speech in June at the National Law Enforcement Conference on Human Exploitation, in which he declared the fight against “evil” pedophiles to be “a top priority” of the Trump Administration.

President Trump keeps his promises, as seen in the figures below which show that in less than seven months, as of the beginning of August 2017, his administration has already arrested more human traffickers (6,355) and rescued more victims of human trafficking (2,056) than the last three years of the Obama administration. In three years (2014-2016) or 36 months under Obama, a total of only 5,159 human traffickers were arrested.

Below are the Trump vs. Obama figures on human trafficking (source).
