Trump Set a Trap: 2018 E.O. Created Command Structure to Combat Election Fraud

Anticipating the theft of the 2020 election, President Trump signed an executive order in 2018 that created a Cabinet-level command structure for monitoring and exposing election fraud and foreign interference.

The executive order, entitled Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election, went largely unnoticed when Trump signed it in Sept. 2018 because the mainstream media was focused on accusing him of benefitting from “Russian election interference” to notice the steps he was taking to combat foreign election interference in general.

“I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” the president declared.

The executive order created a procedure for how the US Cabinet, spearheaded by the Director of National Intelligence, would monitor US elections for foreign interference and, if found, how to stop the resulting fraud and the foreign actors responsible once they’re identified.
