After watching the screening of Sound of Freedom, former president Donald Trump announced that he will work to give child traffickers the death penalty if re-elected in 2024.
Trump released a video discussing the issue of child trafficking and urged people to see the film.
In the video, Trump discussed some of his accomplishments surrounding the issue while he was in the White House and hopes to finish the job if re-elected.
“I will immediately end the Biden border nightmare that traffickers are using to exploit vulnerable women and children,” Trump said.
“We will fully secure the border. I will wage war on the cartels, just as I destroyed the ISIS caliphate.”
The 45th President said he would also return trafficked children to their families.
“I will use Title 42 to end the child trafficking crisis by returning all trafficked children to their families in their home countries, without delay,” Trump also asserted.
“I will urge Congress to ensure that anyone caught trafficking children across the border receives the death penalty immediately.”
Trump vowed to support the death penalty for traffickers.
Title 42 allows the President to curb migration to protect public health.
Meanwhile, Sound of Freedom is raising more awareness of child trafficking.
Jared Geesey, SVP of Global Distribution with Angel Studios, said in a statement:
“SOUND of FREEDOM has become the people’s movie. It was chosen by over 100,000 people in the Angel Guild, fueled by untold tens of thousands through our ‘Pay it Forward’ program, and is dominating the box office as the result of a ground-up, grassroots movement of everyday people who are making this an historic success.”
“This is the opposite of the top-down system developed by Hollywood gatekeepers. We are empowering people to be part of choosing, funding, and sharing stories that amplify light and impact culture.”
On Friday, the film’s star, Jim Caviezel, praised Trump on Truth Social after attending the screening for the film.
“Mr President @realDonaldTrump,
@SoundofFreedomMovie really jumped in Box Office Numbers after we visited you at Bedminster the other night….We are gonna have an incredible weekend because of you Sir!
