A key element of Donald Trump’s popularity as a presidential candidate was his willingness to stake out policy positions that made establishment politicians cower in fear. His success as President will depend upon his willingness to do the same thing. Among his most important tasks will be to take the hard steps necessary to establish a sane and realistic stance for the United States toward the global jihad threat. To do that, he should implement measures such as these:
 Suspend (as promised) immigration from nations that are hotbeds of jihad terror activity.
 Tell the truth about Islamic jihad and supremacism.
 Remove all those linked with the Muslim Brotherhood from any position of responsibility, and end all government agencies’ interaction with groups linked with Hamas.
 Enforce existing laws.
 Reclassify Muslim organizations.
 Reconfigure our international alliances.
Such that no state that oppresses women or non-Muslims in accord with Sharia provisions gets a penny of American aid, or is considered a U.S. ally.
The swamp needs draining indeed. These measures, if adopted, would go a long way toward putting the U.S. back on dry land.
