PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you all for being here. I just want to say that your representatives look right out of a movie. You’re absolutely perfect. So I think that’s very nice. I’m very impressed. It’s great to have both of our representatives with us.

We’re talking North Korea. We’re talking military. We’re talking trade. A lot of progress has already been made. And as you know, we’ve been discussing these things for weeks and even months prior to this meeting, which, truly, we’ll call a summit. And we’ve made a lot of progress.

Shinzo and I have developed a very close relationship. We speak all the time. And our nations, I think, have never been closer than they are right now.

So, Mr. Prime Minister, thank you very much for being here.

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) Prior to the small group discussion at the one-on-one session, we already had a very in-depth discussion focusing on the issue of North Korea and also the economic issues. And on those two points, we actually successfully forged a mutual understanding. So I’m very happy to see the outcome of our one-on-one discussion.

On the issue of North Korea, for the first time in the history of the world, there will be this summit meeting between the United States and North Korea. And also, prior to the U.S.-North Korea summit meeting, the summit meeting between South and North Korea is being planned to take place. And since the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games in South Korea, we have observed major change in terms of North Korea’s behavior. And background of this change is Donald’s unwavering conviction, as well as the determination that you demonstrated in addressing the issue of North Korea. So your stance made it possible to achieve this major change.

So you have made it very clear that all options are on the table. And along with this line, you have demonstrated the maximization of the pressure against North Korea. As a matter of fact, the United States has the overwhelming military power in the world. And by using this strength, you have been effectively applying the overwhelming level of pressure against North Korea

And this, actually, successfully led to the outcome that we have already observed.

So once again, if I may reiterate, Donald, you’ve demonstrated your unwavering determination in addressing the challenge of North Korea. And I’d like to take this opportunity to express and pay my tribute to your leadership.

And also, as the planned U.S.-North Korea summit meeting, which will be held for the first time, my hope is that there will be tangible progress toward resolving the outstanding issues of concern, including nuclear issues, missile issues, as well as the abductions issue, which is the Japanese top priority issue. So this will be a historic meeting, and I certainly hope that there will be progress on these fronts.

And also, to achieve such progress, I would like to have a very serious and also parallel discussion with you today.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. I greatly appreciate that, Shinzo. And I will say that the North Korea problem has been with us for many years. It’s something that should have been taken care of years ago, decades ago. It’s at a point now where we don’t really have a choice. It must be taken care of one way or the other.

I look forward to meeting with Kim Jong-un. And hopefully that will be a success. And maybe it will be, and maybe it won’t be. We don’t know. But we’ll see what happens. But I can say this: They do respect us. We are respectful of them. And we’re going to see what happens.

We will bring up the abductees. We’ll bring up many different things. I think it’s a time for talking, it’s a time for solving problems. I know that’s been a very big factor for you.

South Korea’s meetings with North Korea are very much in coordination with us. We’re in consultation with them constantly. Our relationship with South Korea is a very good one. In fact, we’re in the midst of negotiating a new and better, perhaps for both sides, trade deal. Because right now it’s an unfair deal, frankly, to the United States. But what else is new. All of them are. But we are going to finalize a new deal fairly soon. We probably could have it done already if I wanted to have it done. But we are in very close communication and coordination with South Korea with their upcoming meetings, and even their current talks with North Korea.

And as I said before, the war has never ended. If we can do something even before the meeting — the big planned meeting — that would be fine. But we’re dealing very closely with South Korea. They’re the ones that came and told us about the original meeting that they want to meet with me, they want to meet with the United States, specifically. We have not picked a site yet, but we’ve picked five sites where it’s potentially going to be. We’ll let you know fairly soon.

And let’s see what happens. We’ll either have a very good meeting or we won’t have a good meeting. And maybe we won’t even have a meeting at all depending on what’s going in.

But I think that there’s a great chance to solve a world problem. This is not a problem for the United States. It’s not a problem for Japan or any other country. It’s a problem for the world.

We’ve also started talking to North Korea directly. We have had direct talks at very high levels — extremely high levels — with North Korea. And I really believe there’s a lot of goodwill. A lot of good things are happening. We’ll see what happens. As I always say, we’ll see what happens. Because ultimately, it’s the end result that counts, not the fact that we’re thinking about having a meeting or having a meeting.

And I just want to conclude by thanking President Xi of China. He’s been incredibly generous. They have never been this way with the United States. I think they have more respect for us, perhaps our leadership, but for us than they’ve ever had before. But President Xi has been very strong on the border, much stronger than anyone thought they would be. I’d like them to be stronger on the border. But he has been at a level that nobody ever expected. The goods coming into North Korea have been cut down very substantially. As you know, 93 percent of the goods coming into North Korea come through China, come through the border.

So I want to thank President Xi, a man we have — I just have a great relationship with. A very special person to me. And we are also negotiating very tough trade deals with China. We hope that’s going to work out. But he has been very, very generous in terms of what we’re doing with North Korea, and I would like to thank him.

PRIME MINISTER ABE: (As interpreted.) In your remarks, I understand, as you specifically mentioned, that you are going to take up the issue of the abductions issue in the upcoming U.S. and North Korea summit meeting. And this request, your deep understanding of how Japan cares about this abductions issue. And I am very grateful for your commitment.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You have my commitment. Thank you.

PRIME MINISTER ABE: Thank you very much.

Q Are any of the sites in the U.S.? Any in the U.S.?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: No.

Diplomatic Room

9:01 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: My fellow Americans, a short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway. We thank them both.

Tonight, I want to speak with you about why we have taken this action.

One year ago, Assad launched a savage chemical weapons attack against his own innocent people. The United States responded with 58 missile strikes that destroyed 20 percent of the Syrian Air Force.

Last Saturday, the Assad regime again deployed chemical weapons to slaughter innocent civilians — this time, in the town of Douma, near the Syrian capital of Damascus. This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime.

The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children, thrashing in pain and gasping for air. These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead.

Following the horrors of World War I a century ago, civilized nations joined together to ban chemical warfare. Chemical weapons are uniquely dangerous not only because they inflict gruesome suffering, but because even small amounts can unleash widespread devastation.

The purpose of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons. Establishing this deterrent is a vital national security interest of the United States. The combined American, British, and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power — military, economic, and diplomatic. We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents.

I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime.

To Iran, and to Russia, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?

The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep. No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators.

In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons. Assad’s recent attack — and today’s response — are the direct result of Russia’s failure to keep that promise.

Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path, or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. Hopefully, someday we’ll get along with Russia, and maybe even Iran — but maybe not.

I will say this: The United States has a lot to offer, with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world.

In Syria, the United States — with but a small force being used to eliminate what is left of ISIS — is doing what is necessary to protect the American people. Over the last year, nearly 100 percent of the territory once controlled by the so-called ISIS caliphate in Syria and Iraq has been liberated and eliminated.

The United States has also rebuilt our friendships across the Middle East. We have asked our partners to take greater responsibility for securing their home region, including contributing large amounts of money for the resources, equipment, and all of the anti-ISIS effort. Increased engagement from our friends, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, and others can ensure that Iran does not profit from the eradication of ISIS.

America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria under no circumstances. As other nations step up their contributions, we look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home. And great warriors they are.

Looking around our very troubled world, Americans have no illusions. We cannot purge the world of evil, or act everywhere there is tyranny.

No amount of American blood or treasure can produce lasting peace and security in the Middle East. It’s a troubled place. We will try to make it better, but it is a troubled place. The United States will be a partner and a friend, but the fate of the region lies in the hands of its own people.

In the last century, we looked straight into the darkest places of the human soul. We saw the anguish that can be unleashed and the evil that can take hold. By the end of the World War I, more than one million people had been killed or injured by chemical weapons. We never want to see that ghastly specter return.

So today, the nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshaled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality.

Tonight, I ask all Americans to say a prayer for our noble warriors and our allies as they carry out their missions.

We pray that God will bring comfort to those suffering in Syria. We pray that God will guide the whole region toward a future of dignity and of peace.

And we pray that God will continue to watch over and bless the United States of America.

Thank you, and goodnight. Thank you.

James S. Brady Press Briefing Room

4:00 P.M. EDT

MS. SANDERS: Good afternoon. Earlier today, the President signed a bipartisan, anti-sex trafficking bill that provides law enforcement officials, including state attorneys general and local prosecutors, invaluable tools. The new law makes it clearer to take legal action against websites promoting advertisements for this modern-day slavery. Human trafficking is one of the most barbaric types of exploitation, and President Trump has been clear that it has no place in our world.

Advocates have long pointed to these websites as profiting from trafficking, including of children. It also provides new legal recourses for victims and law enforcement by enhancing penalties for people who promote or facilitate prostitution.

Yesterday, the President signed an Executive Order on Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility. The order provides nine principles of economic mobility that will guide agencies that administer public assistance programs to review all regulations relating to work and send a report to the President on what they can do to get Americans back to work.

The Trump administration recognizes that many states have been successful enacting commonsense work requirements and are seeing positive results, improving the lives of thousands of individuals and families. Many others have noticed and are leading the charge to provide greater opportunities to their citizens.

President Trump believes we can lift our citizens from welfare to work, from dependence to independence, and from poverty to prosperity.

We are also glad to see California Governor Jerry Brown work with the administration and send members of the National Guard to help secure the southern border.

And with that, I’ll take your questions. John.

Q Sarah, the Russian military has come out and said that there was no poison gas attack. That was Sergey Lavrov the other day who said they got no evidence of it. Today, a Russian military official says, oh, there was an attack but it was staged by the White Helmets brigade component of the rebels in Syria. What do you say to the Russian statement that this thing was staged by the White Helmets?

MS. SANDERS: The intelligence provided certainly paints a different picture, and the President holds Syria and Russia responsible for this chemical weapons attack.

Q I have an unrelated question on the Cohen raids the other day. It now looks as though prosecutors were looking for some sort of documentation that might have been connected with the Access Hollywood tape, as you know came out during the campaign, which you were a part of. And that is an effort to connect the dots between subsequent payments that were made to keep people quiet, which may constitute some sort of FEC violation for an illegal campaign contribution.

If the Mueller investigation has now morphed from looking at Russian collusion to an illegal campaign contribution by the President’s personal attorney, would the President consider that to be the Mueller investigation has strayed outside of its initial mandate?

MS. SANDERS: The President certainly has been clear that he has a very deep concern about the direction that the Special Counsel and other investigations have taken. This investigation started off as Russia collusion, of which there was none. It has been very clear that nothing has come up over the last year, and the President has spoken at length on this topic.

While the media continues to focus on this, despite the fact that there’s been no evidence after a year, we’re going to continue to stay focused on the issues.

Yamiche.

Q A source, today, told me that President Trump is concerned that Paul Ryan’s retiring and not seeking reelection might encourage other Republicans to also not seek reelection. What do you say about that?

MS. SANDERS: We certainly hope that Republicans will continue to remain in the House, especially those that support the President’s agenda. And those that are campaigning, we look forward to a number of them coming out and also supporting the President’s agenda. I can’t get into a lot of details about specifics of individuals running for office.

But the President has been very clear about how he feels about Speaker Ryan. He knows that he’s a truly good man and will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question. And he wishes him well as he moves forward in his future.

Q And Representative Scalise told me today — he said that there’s a tough political climate in that Republicans were already facing a lot of challenges and a lot of problems going forward. There are some people, though, that think that President Trump is part of the problem that Republicans have — that his rhetoric, his actions have made it harder for Republicans to win midterm elections. What does the President think about that? And does he actually plan to campaign with people? And does he think at all that he could hurt the chances of some Republicans if he goes out in the field?

MS. SANDERS: We think that Republicans, particularly the President, have a great story to tell moving into the midterms. We’ve had an incredibly successful first year and a half, focused on tax cuts, deregulation, working towards the defeat of ISIS, remaking of the judiciary, and a number of other things that we consider to be great successes and great things for Republicans to talk about as they look forward to the future.

Michelle.

Q Thanks, Sarah. With Syria set to chair the U.N. Conference on Disarmament next month, will the President consider, or does he have any plans to pull the U.S. out for the duration of Syria presiding over that group?

MS. SANDERS: I don’t have any specific announcements on that front right now.

Q And is the White House concerned with Facebook’s efforts to silence conservatives? It’s been a topic on the Hill today and yesterday.

MS. SANDERS: Certainly, the White House would always support not just conservatives but everyone having the ability to speak freely on a number of platforms across this country, and we certainly support the Constitution that provides that right.

Steven.

Q Two questions about the President’s statement this morning. What does “Get ready Russia” mean? Is the United States planning to target Russian assets, personnel in Syria as part of the attack that the President himself said is coming — the missiles are coming? What does it mean?

MS. SANDERS: We’re maintaining that we have a number of options, and all of those options are still on the table. Final decisions haven’t been made yet on that front.

Q So does it mean anything at all? What does it mean?

MS. SANDERS: It certainly means — I think there’s a lot there that you can read from. But at the same time, the President has a number of options at his disposal, and all of those options remain on the table, and we’re continuing to look at each one of them.

Q If I might follow up with a separate question about another one of the President’s tweets this morning: Can you explain how the Special Counsel investigation has made for “bad blood” with Russia?

MS. SANDERS: Certainly, I think that the President has been extremely clear that the constant focus of the fact that the President and his campaign had any collusion with Russia has hurt those relationships. The President has maintained, for a very long time, that the United States and Russia having a good relationship is good for the world. He certainly still believes that.

But at the same time, that’s hampered the ability to do so, as well as the actions — particularly the bad actions — that Russia has taken, including meddling in our election among other things. But tying the President to that has created a lot of unnecessary problems.

Mike.

Q Two quick questions. You said that the final decision on Syria hasn’t been made yet. Does the President’s emoting on Twitter complicate the planning on this or present a national security risk?

MS. SANDERS: Not at all.

Q And on Michael Cohen, the Wall Street Journal and others have reported that Rosenstein signed off on the search warrant here. Does the White House believe this was a wrong decision from Mr. Rosenstein? And do they think he should step down?

MS. SANDERS: Once again, I’m not going to get into the process, and that was something that you would have to talk to the Department of Justice about. In terms of personnel, I don’t have any announcements.

Hallie.

Q Sarah, two on Syria. Given your comments given here at the podium, given the President’s tweets this morning, is the White House prepared for the possibility of direct military engagement with Russia?

MS. SANDERS: Once again, all options are on the table, and I don’t have any further announcements about —

Q It sounds like a yes. Just — I want to be clear.

MS. SANDERS: It sounds like all options are on the table, and a final decision hasn’t been made, but we’ll keep you posted once it is.

Q And then let me ask that follow-up, too. The President, as you know, back in 2013, talked about why, when it comes to Syria, we can’t just, in his words, “be quiet and, if we attack at all, catch them by surprise.” Obviously, the President didn’t talk about a date or a time for any kind of attack on Syria, but he did talk about, as Steven points out, “get ready” for something. Why this time is the President not taking his own advice and being “quiet,” as he put it?

MS. SANDERS: The President, like you said — and actually answered my question for me — has not laid out a timetable, and he has a number of other options as well. And we’re considering all of those options and a number of different timetables of what any action we may or may not take would look like.

Q So that 48-hour timetable is out the window that he talked about Monday? We should disregard that?

MS. SANDERS: In a public sense, certainly the President has made some decisions. He made a decision not to travel to Latin America so that we could focus on this. That was the first step in this process, but we’re continuing to look at a number of options.

Jon.

Q But, Sarah, the President was direct in talking about missiles. He said, “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’” Why is the President telegraphing military intentions on Twitter; announcing, effectively, an attack on Twitter?

MS. SANDERS: Again, the President has not laid out a timetable and still leaving a number of other options on the table. And we’re still considering a number of those, and a final decision on that front hasn’t been made.

Q And if I could ask — another one of the tweets, which Steven asked about, is also pretty direct here. He says, “…bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation.” Isn’t it Russia’s support for what the President himself calls a “Gas Killing Animal,” or its meddling in our elections, or its military intervention in Ukraine — aren’t those the actions that have cause bad blood? (Inaudible) Robert Mueller?

MS. SANDERS: It’s both of those things. Neither one of those things are good for our country. The President has been clear that the relationship with Russia is at a new low, and that’s due to a number of factors. Certainly, the things that you listed off, as well as the investigation, are all things that have hurt that relationship.

Q So Robert Mueller’s actions are similar to — I mean, another —

MS. SANDERS: I didn’t say that. You’re certainly putting words into my mouth.

Q Well, he’s the one that said “is.” He’s the one that —

MS. SANDERS: I said that both of those things are bad for America. That’s all I said.

Jeff, go ahead.

Q Sarah, Russia responded to the President’s tweet by saying, “Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, and not towards the lawful government…” What’s the White House’s reaction to that?

MS. SANDERS: I think that the President has been pretty clear what his position is on this front. Russia has proven themselves to be responsible in part for this. They guaranteed that the use of chemical weapons by Syria would not happen again. They failed at that. They’ve also helped enable Syria by vetoing six different U.N. resolutions that have helped protect Assad. So they certainly hold some responsibility in this, and certainly have proven themselves to be bad actors in this process.

Q Is the White House or the State Department in any kind of backchannel discussions with Russia to defuse the tension? And does the President still hope to meet with President Putin sometime soon?

MS. SANDERS: I don’t have any announcements on either front. I can’t get into the specifics on any conversations.

David.

Q Jim Mattis and Mike Pompeo were spotted today. Did the President meet with them to talk about Syria? And if so, what came out of that meeting?

MS. SANDERS: The President’s national security team met today. That meeting was chaired by the Vice President to discuss a number of options.

Blake.

Q Sarah, you just said that the intelligence provided certainly paints a different picture, and that the President holds Syria and Russia responsible for the attack. However, earlier this morning, the Defense Secretary said, “We’re still assessing the intelligence — ourselves…We’re still working on this.” So what has changed over the last handful of hours from when the Defense Secretary said, “We’re still assessing the intelligence,” and now, to where you clearly point the finger at Russia and Syria?

MS. SANDERS: As I just stated to both Jeff and Jonathan, Russia holds some responsibility in the fact that they guaranteed that Syria wouldn’t use chemical weapons again, and they did. They also hold some responsibility in the fact that they have the six U.N. resolutions that they vetoed to help protect Assad. Both of those things lie at Russia’s feet in terms of responsibility in this process.

Q So then you still are assessing the intelligence then as the Defense Secretary stated before?

MS. SANDERS: Certainly, there are things that are being assessed. I can’t get into the details. But we’re confident in the part of this process that we’re in to feel comfortable making the assertions that we have earlier today.

Francesca.

Q Thank you, Sarah. You said all these things about Russia and that they’ve been bad actors, they voted against the United Nations Security Council resolutions, as well. And this morning, the President, on Twitter, said that Russia is supported a “Gas Killing Animal.” So does the President now believe that Russia has firmly established itself as an enemy of America, especially since Russia has said that it will shoot down U.S. missiles if the President fires upon Syria?

MS. SANDERS: We certainly think they’ve proven to be a bad actor, and we hope that that will change.

April.

Q What about an enemy, though? Are they an enemy, though, of America at this point?

MS. SANDERS: That’s something that Russia needs to play a role in determining. We hope that they will continue — or not continue, I’m sorry, to be a bad actor, and make some changes in their behavior. But that’s something that Russia will have to play a role in determining.

Q And one separate — just really quick.

MS. SANDERS: Sorry, Francesca, I’m going to keep going.

April.

Q Sarah, as you say, “All options are on the table” when it comes to Syria and Russia. Has diplomacy been exhausted? That’s an option, as well.

MS. SANDERS: As I said, all options are on the table.

Q So it has not — is there — are you saying —

MS. SANDERS: Again, all options are on the table. That contains a number of different things.

Q So diplomacy could still be in play?

MS. SANDERS: It could be. But there are a lot of other options that are also on the table.

Q Sarah, four senators — two Dems, two Republicans — have a bill to ensure that a Special Counsel isn’t fired for political reasons. Does the White House support that bill? Does the White House think a bill like that is necessary?

MS. SANDERS: We don’t have an administrative policy on that right now.

John.

Q Yeah, thank you, Sarah. Two questions. On Monday I asked you if the President had contacted President Macron and Prime Minister May about an alliance with France and England, not unlike that that President Obama tried to forge in 2013. He has had two conversations with both of them. Have there been any new developments? I mean, has he spoken with any other world leaders, especially those in Central Europe, about a larger coalition instead of the U.S. going it alone in Syria?

MS. SANDERS: Yeah, we’ve had regular contact with regional allies and partners, including Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, and the UK, as well as a number of other countries at various levels.

Q What about Central Europe?

MS. SANDERS: We provided readouts of the conversations the President has directly had, but both the National Security Advisor as well as the Secretary of Defense, the Acting Secretary of State, and a number of others within the administration have had regular contact with their counterparts from a number of other countries.

Q And the other thing I wanted to ask: The President has a good relationship with Congressman Scalise, a good, personal relationship with his family. What does he think about the reports that Congressman Scalise will run for Speaker soon?

MS. SANDERS: The President has a great relationship with a number of members in the House of Representatives who support his agenda, and he looks forward to working with all of them over the course of the next six and a half — seven years, I guess. My math is not great.

Tamara.

Q Yeah. Is the President considering firing or in other ways pushing out Rosenstein?

MS. SANDERS: I don’t have any personnel announcements on this front.

Q Just one other thing. Paul Ryan today said that he’s been given assurances by the White House that the President isn’t planning to fire Rosenstein or Mueller. Do you know where he’s getting those assurances? Is it coming from the President? Is it coming from others? Where is it coming from?

MS. SANDERS: Again, I don’t have any announcements on that front.

Steve.

Q Sarah, Senator Markey, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, said today that the President must come to Congress for authorization prior to another military strike on Syria. And there are others who are also saying that. Does the administration intend to do that? And if not, why not?

MS. SANDERS: Obviously, the administration will follow whatever laws and regulations are necessary for any actions that we take. Because we haven’t laid out any specific actions that we plan to take, I can’t tell you exactly what needs we would have to go to Congress with.

Jim.

Q It sounds like the President hasn’t really left a lot of wiggle room. You said that all options are on the table, but when the President says, “Get ready Russia…they will be coming,” the missiles are coming, how is that anything but an announcement of a pending airstrike?

MS. SANDERS: That’s certainly one option, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only option or the only thing that the President may or may not do. Just because he does one thing doesn’t mean he can’t do a number of other actions as well.

Q Isn’t that telegraphing?

MS. SANDERS: And he certainly hasn’t laid out the timetable which would be broadcasting his intentions.

Q One other quick thing on Speaker Ryan’s announcement. There are some fears up on Capitol Hill, and we understand some in the White House, that a Democratic wave is coming; it could sweep the Republicans out of power in the House and that could potentially lead to impeachment proceedings that the Democrats could bring forward. What is the President’s thinking on that? What is your thinking on that?

MS. SANDERS: Like I said earlier, we are very confident in the record that we have and the very successful first year and a half that the President has had in office, and we expect to talk about that a lot. We’d love for you guys to talk about that a lot more, too. And we’d be happy to send you some talking points if you need some guidance on that.

Q Do you think a wave is coming? You think a wave is coming?

MS. SANDERS: We certainly think we have a great story to tell, and we think America will be ready to listen to that and certainly has, I think, felt the impact, certainly from an economic standpoint for this administration. And we’re proud of that.

I’ll take one last question. Right here, Andrew.

Q Just to follow up on Jeff and April’s question, is there anything that Syria or Russia could do at this point to avoid military action?

MS. SANDERS: Again, I’m not going to get ahead of anything. But certainly, like I’ve said a few times today, all options are on the table and we’ll continue conversations with our allies and partners and move forward from that point.

Thanks so much, guys. Have a great day.

April 11, 2018- President Trump signs legislation to help stop online sex trafficking advertising. It is expected to stop 87% of all online advertising. See bill outline below.

The following White House release gives a bullet point review of the legislation the President signed

RESOURCES TO END SEX TRAFFICKING: The Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act of 2017 (FOSTA), which includes the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act of 2017 (SESTA), will give law enforcement and victims new tools to fight sex trafficking.

  • FOSTA amends the Communications Act of 1934 to create an exception for sex trafficking, making it easier to target websites with legal action for enabling such crimes. Under the package:
    • the “Communications Decency Provisions” can no longer be construed to impair or limit civil action or criminal prosecution relating to sex trafficking; and
    • those benefiting from “participating in a venture,” knowingly assisting supporting, or facilitating an act of sex trafficking are now in violation of the Federal criminal code.
  • In addition, FOSTA provides new legal recourse for victims and law enforcement alike, by:
    • enhancing penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to 25 years, or both—for people who promote or facilitate the prostitution of five or more people or who contribute to sex trafficking through reckless disregard;
    • allowing victims or damaged individuals of sex trafficking seek justice against websites that assist in the violation of Federal sex trafficking laws; and
    • enabling State law enforcement officials to take action against individuals or businesses that violate Federal sex trafficking laws.

HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING IS AN EPIDEMIC: Human sex trafficking is a plague upon our great Nation and the world.

  • Sex trafficking is a global form of modern-day slavery in which individuals are coerced to perform commercial sex acts against their will.
    • Per the International Labor Organization, there may be as many as 24.9 million victims of forced labor across the world. Of these, 4.8 million were in forced sexual exploitation.
    • Over 99 percent of trafficked individuals trapped in forced sexual exploitation are women.
    • Over 21 percent of those trafficked for sex are children.
  • The United States is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children—both United States citizens and foreign nationals—victimized by human trafficking and sex trafficking.
    • In FY 2017, DHS’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations (ICE/HSI) initiated 833 human trafficking cases, resulting in 1,602 arrests and 578 convictions, and identified 518 victims of human trafficking.
    • Since 2007, the National Human Trafficking Hotline has received reports of 22,191 sex trafficking cases in the United States.
    • Of the nearly 25,000 runaway children reports to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking.
    • The underground sex economy is a multimillion dollar industry. A 2014 Urban Institute study estimated the combined worth of the underground sex economy in Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Miami, Seattle, San Diego, and Washington, D.C., to be between $39.9 and $290 million.
  • The situations that sex trafficking victims face vary widely:
    • Some are manipulated or forced into prostitution by romantic partners;
    • Some are lured in with false job promises, frequently modeling or dancing; and
    • Some are forced into prostitution by parents or family members.
  • Sex trafficking happens to every population group and occurs in a wide range of venues, including online websites or ads, at varying businesses, and on the street.

CONTINUING TO TAKE ACTION: Signing the FOSTA is a continuation of President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to take the fight to human traffickers.

  • The President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (PTIF) is working around the clock to prosecute traffickers, protect victims, and prevent human trafficking.
  • In March 2018, in light of the impending passage of FOSTA, Ivanka Trump led a bipartisan, bicameral roundtable discussion on Human Trafficking.
  • Also in March 2018, the President appointed nine human trafficking survivors to serve on the U.S. Advisory Council on Human Trafficking for terms of two years.
  • The President designated January 2018 as “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month,” reaffirming his Administration’s commitment to do all in its power to end the horrific practice of human trafficking.
  • In September 2017, Ivanka Trump and Deputy Secretary of State Sullivan joined more than 20 world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly for a global call to end modern slavery and to announce the State Department’s $25 million grant to the Global Fund to End Modern Slavery.
  • In February 2017, the President signed Executive Order 13773, “Enforcing Federal Law with Respect to Transnational Criminal Organization and Preventing International Trafficking.”
