Whether You Support Trump or Not, We Should Agree on One Thing: Human Trafficking is Bad
Guest Editorial by Pamela Parlin
It’s natural for somebody to be a devil’s advocate in most scenarios, especially against a politician or a president. But yesterday, I witnessed our president pledge to end human trafficking. The support was huge, but there was a lot of resentment for some reason. That reason is that the idea came from Donald Trump.
But first, let’s me be honest and say this Twitter user took the words out of my mouth:
@ABC I cannot stand him. I'd be disingenuous if I didn't say that this is a massive problem that has been ignored. He's right.

As human beings, we should all be glad that our president is an egalitarian who supports the freedoms of all individuals and is pledging to help victims of human trafficking. Disagreeing with that is much worse than calling yourself an “anti-feminist” or “alt-right,” in my view (and in the view of any sane individual).
Here are a few examples of people who just have to disagree with Donald Trump, no matter what:
@ABC he has no clue what he is talking about!

@ABC but he aided and abetted it for years. Why now? Not enough money in it for him?

@ABC what rock has he been under, Ashton Kutcher was on Capital Hill talking about this last week. Trump do your homework before you speak.

It would in fact be considered disingenuous to deny the fact that human trafficking is an issue that needs to be solved. But a lot of people aren’t trying to find any common ground with this administration, let alone the common ground morality. The regressive left and the establishment are more concerned with finding any way they can to run President trump out of office…forget trying to actually come together and help solve humanitarian issues.
It shouldn’t matter if you disagree with Trump politically or not, you shouldn’t disagree with wanting to end human trafficking. Politics are warping people’s brains.
