The God-Emperor observes that the 2nd Amendment takes precedence over entangling foreign alliances:
President Trump announced Friday that he would un-sign the global arms pact known as the Arms Trade Treaty in the latest illustration of his aversion to international pacts and world governance. “I’m officially announcing today that the United States will be revoking the effect of America’s signature from this badly misguided treaty,” Trump said during a speech before the National Rifle Association in Indianapolis. “We will never allow foreign bureaucrats to trample on your Second Amendment freedom.”
The origins of the treaty, which sets out international rules for sales and transfers of everything from small arms to large planes and ships, date to the George W. Bush administration. It was negotiated under the auspices of the United Nations and signed in 2013 under President Barack Obama but has never been ratified by U.S. lawmakers.
It will be interesting if he similarly defends the 1st Amendment, which is under active assault from everyone from AIPAC to Twitter.
