Electing Trump Will Be the Most Important Victory Ever for the Animal Movement

donald-trump progressivesElecting Trump should be the primary goal of every American animal activist. It is more important than anything the animal movement has ever done.

The goal of the animal movement is to save animal lives and to end animal suffering.

But all of the work of all animal activists around the world only saves about a million animals per year, mostly dogs and cats.

That equals 50 million over the last 50 years. (A disheartening aside, that is about the number of animals that will be murdered in slaughterhouses during the next work shift.)

Most animal activists are shocked when I explain that Trump will save more animals each year than has the entire worldwide animal movement over the past 50 years.

And it is about half the number that President Trump will save each year by abrogating our trade agreements with Mexico, Canada, Colombia, China, Korea, Vietnam, Peru, etc.

Trade agreements kill animals. Hundreds of millions of animals every year die specifically because of our trade agreements, which make it cheaper and more profitable to produce animal corpses. Using Third World labor, US companies ship animals overseas to be tortured, slaughtered, butchered, and returned to the US for sale in American stores and restaurants. Trade agreements require that nations forbid Country of Origin labeling to prevent consumer boycotts. The Obama administration has already enacted such a ban on labeling. Trade agreements override US labor, environmental, and anti-cruelty laws. They make it impossible to ban live export for slaughter of for animal sacrifice in the Middle East, dooming hundreds of thousands of sheep, lambs, goats, and calves to imprisonment in ships’ holds for weeks before being cruelly murdered by religious zealots.

Trump opposes trade agreements. Hillary Clinton supports them.

And Trump has promised to repudiate and abrogate every trade agreement to which the US is a party.

If Trump does what he has promised, it will mean tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of animals saved every year.

It will be the most sweeping blow for animals in history.

And it will be accomplished by someone who does not really care about animals.

The animal movement has never had the possibility of accomplishing so much as it has with prospect of a Trump presidency.

Most animal activists who criticize Trump point to Trump’s serial killer sons who hunt big game and post horrific pics of themselves with poor creatures they have murdered for fun. And while Trump himself does not hunt, like Bernie Sanders, he condones and supports hunting.

Trump also owned a steak company and buys his wife furs.

At first glance, Trump seems an unlikely ally for animal activists, and an even more unlikely savior of animals.

But Trump, with the stroke of a pen, will save more animals than anyone in history.

Central to Trump’s campaign has been his opposition to trade agreements and his pledge to reject every one of them when elected. Under the Constitution, the president has the power and authority to cancel treaties, which trade agreements are. Trump will need no Congressional approval to cancel trade agreements, it is a power of the office.

Can anyone imagine Trump not exercising all the power at his disposal?

If animals are your priority, you have no choice but to vote for Donald Trump. But if you are like most people, you have priorities that are more important to you than the animals.

Most animal activists are politically progressive, and many are swept up in the euphoria of the prospect of electing the first woman as president. For those with such an agenda, the fact that Hillary Clinton is perhaps one of the greatest enemies that animals have is unimportant. Clinton’s support of trade agreements causes the suffering and deaths of hundreds of millions of animals each year, yet she manages to pay lip service to animal welfare concerns on her website and thereby silences many activists who do not take the time to carefully look at her policies or her record.

The litmus tests I employ for every election is which candidate will do the most for animals or which will cause animals the least suffering. Even Bernie supported hunting and dairy farms, so even the best candidate in the race was greatly flawed. Of Trump and Hillary, Trump has pledged to repudiate our trade agreements. When he does so, HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of animals will not be slaughtered each year. Think of that number! Every year Trump will save easily twice the number of animals as has been saved by the entire worldwide animal movement over the past 50 years!

  1. With all due respect, I do not agree with your article. It’s true that perhaps, SOME animals — those used for food and shipped overseas alive to be killed, processed and sent back — COULD benefit. But don’t you think it’s more likely that Trump will find a way to open more slaughterhouses here in U.S. so as not to be forced to ship those animas overseas at all, thereby creating more jobs here? How does this save animals?

    And what about when Sarah Palin and Trump’s sons take over the Dept of the Interior? Or when counless wild animals are indirectly killed due to the anti-animal policies of a Trump dictatorship? We can expect laying oil pipelines on public lands, increased urban development, fracking, more roads and highways, drilling in national parks, increased offshore oil drilling to name a few. This administration will make sure that the 1/3 of all wildlife that is left on the planet is wiped out. Sorry, but I don’t think having Trump/Pence in the highest office in the land is remotely good for animals in any way.

  2. If Trump was Pro Animal Welfare .. he wouldn’t have stacked his cabinet with Anti Animal Welfare members, all or most of all 64 members he has chosen are Anti Animal Welfare with Forrest Lucas leading the pack .. i fear these are very dark days ahead for all our animals, both wild and domestic and the war against animal cruelty to all animals has becomes 10 times worse.

    FACT: Trump’s Agriculture Advisory Committee members are staunch PRO SLAUGHTER/ANTI ANIMAL WELFARE individuals..

    FACT: Forrest Lucas is high on Trump’s list to be appointed as the Secretary of Agriculture or the Department of Interior.

    FACT: Forrest Lucas is behind (and creator of) Protect the Harvest.

    FACT: Protect the Harvest IS Pro slaughter and against any animal welfare including being opposed to establishing felony level penalties for malicious cruelty against horses, dogs and cats. This group supports puppymills and pitbull fighting, gestation crates for swine and cages for poultry. They not only want to bring back horse slaughter to US soil but they want to have horsemeat sold in US grocery stores for human consumption as another source of meat ( american horses are not raised as a food animal and are given all kinds of drugs and medications that are banned world wide from being used in food producing animals for human consumption, ALL products on the market for equines state in bold, capital letters “Not For Use In Horses Intended For Human Consumption”, this includes fly spray, wormers, shampoos, wound sprays and ointments, hoof products and vaccines )

    FACT: Other EXTREMELY vocal pro slaughter individuals, who are being considered for CABINET positions, are: Mary Fallin – Governor of Oklahoma, she is ready for defunding to not be included in the upcoming 2018 Federal Budget so that Oklahoma may start horse slaughter; Cynthia Loomis – House of Rep. (WY) who was quoted saying horse slaughter is a “lovely and peaceful euthanasia” for the wild mustangs/burros being held in long-term holding facilities; Sid Miller – Texas Agriculture Commissioner who tried twice to make it legal in the State of Texas to sell horse meat for human consumption; Terry Barnstead – Governor of Iowa, who was the first governor to sign into law an “ag-gag” order that in effect punishes whistle blowers and gives factory farmers the green light over animal welfare and employee safety; and Bruce Rastetter – factory farmer millionaire of Iowa (who is reportedly the front runner for Department of Agriculture Secretary over Sid)…He made his money with large scale hog factory farms and his brother is the head of a company which builds the hog gestation crates.

    • You obviously only read the title of my article. I never suggested that Trump was in favor of animal welfare. Quite the opposite. I observed that he does not care about animals, and that the benefit to animals of a Trump presidency would be unintentional. However, that unintentional benefit would exceed any intentional efforts by Hillary Clinton.
      The laundry list of animal abusers you have cited is no worse than those in Obama’s administration, nor worse than Hillary choice to lead her transition team, Ken Salazar. Trump, Hillary, and even Bernie, support animal agriculture. The choice in politicians is always which will do the least harm to animals. Hillary was the status quo, and the status quo is the worst for animals in human history. It can only get better from here, or it can trigger political revolution. The animals will do better with either.

Factory farms, puppy and kitten mills, horse slaughter, extermination of wild horse herds or the sake or gas exploration and cattle grazing… all profitable, and fit his theory that if it makes money, it’s good. Animals may become unwilling victims of “making America great again”. America may not be so great for animals. I hope I’m wrong.

    “Oh, he campaigned on this promise!” Yeah, and? He campaigned on a wall on the Mexican border he won’t be able to put up.

    • I will be happy to dig out the statistics. But you are mistaken if you think that the problem is not being able to find slaughter facilities or slaughter companies in the US. What is occurring is that American wholesalers are purchasing foreign produced meat at prices below those that domestic producers must charge.
      Animals die under trade agreements because animal corpses are cheaper to produce using Third World labor. Cheaper production costs mean lower prices and increased demand. Ending trade agreements will raise costs, increase prices, and drive down demand. Imported corpses will face tariffs, Country of Origin labeling, and taxes to protect American producers. Domestic slaughter will decrease, as some foreign markets will be closed to US exporters, further increasing prices and reducing supply.
      Trump’s objections to trade agreements are twofold. Firstly, they do not prohibit currency manipulation, which has beleaguered our trade with China. Secondly, they force US labor to compete with Third World labor.
      As animal corpses are cheaper under our trade agreements because of Third World labor, any renegotiation of our trade deals to comport with Trump’s positions would necessarily benefit animals, even if unintentionally.
      By ending trade agreements, or even renegotiating them, Trump will save more animals than anyone in history ever has. And about twenty times the number that the animals movement has saved over the last hundred years.

      • Of course they are. It is profitable for Big Ag to produce corpses even if they are not consumed by people. Government subsidies for the slaughter industries makes them immune from many of the uncertainties of markets. Wholesalers and distributors, however, can buy imported corpses cheaper than then can be purchased from domestic producers. Were trade agreements to be rejected, those wholesalers and distributors would be forced to buy from domestic sources, increasing their costs and driving up prices to retailers, resulting in increased prices to consumes and decreases in consumption.

      Trump’s primary objection to our current trade agreements is that they force American labor to compete with Third World labor. That is also the reason that animals corpses are cheaper to produce in Third World countries than in the US. And that is the driving force that causes the deaths of hundreds of millions of animals every year under our trade agreements. Whether Trump summarily rejects those agreements or forces them to be renegotiated with protections for the American workforce, the result will be the same for the animals. Hundreds of millions fewer will be murdered every year.

  14. I like your augument which has logic and truth. But unpeel the onion a bit more. The biggest factor in making meat cheap is agricultural subsidies for growing animal feed. Trade issues are much less important. If you want a a fundamental economic solution the applying the Henry George idea of Land value tax and externality taxes in the damage of oil and chemicals would fundamentally rebalanced food production away from meat. It would make land use more efficient and mean lots of land would return to nature.

CEO’s cause most cancer, pollute our water, foul our air, sever our mountain tops, steal, cause poverty, war, terrorists, own the media, courts, destroy the land, frack. I feel the democrats will keep Hillary to the left although the CEO’s will pull on her strings too. They are the real terrorists.

      • Trump and the Republicans will be unable to cut any environmental regulations, just as they will be unable to build a border wall. Congress will be divided, as it has been under Obama. Neither Trump nor Hillary will be able to get anything controversial to their desks.

  22. His vice president nominee has voted to stop funding our Wild Mustangs and his pick for secretary of the Interior, Lucus, is an avid hunter, and big promoter of hunting even Wild Mustangs to control populations. Yes, your right his sons and buying fur is another disqualifying point.

    • There is no doubt that the Republicans would abolish the EPA, sell off federal lands, open National Parks to mining, hunting, and drilling, etc. IF THEY COULD. Nothing of the sort can possibly occur, as nothing controversial will pass a divided Congress. No border wall, no mass deportations, and no dismantling of environmental protections.
      Trump will save hundreds of millions of animals by rejecting trade agreements. More animals than there are people in the country! Every year he is in office!
