President Trump signs executive orders for ‘new era of justice’


President Donald Trump just signed three new executive orders, which he says are meant to usher in a “new era of justice.”

“I’m signing three executive actions today designed to restore safety in America,” Trump announced from the Oval Office as he swore in Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The first he said, would “break the back of the criminal cartels that have spread across our nation and are destroying the blood of our youth.” The other two will create a task force on violent crime and will instruct Sessions to create a plan to prevent violence against police officers. “A new era of justice begins and it begins right now,” Trump said.

The actual language of the executive orders are not yet known.
