“I think it’s safe to say that under the previous administration it was not prioritized as the threat that President Trump has prioritized it as,” said Fernandez, who has been with the agency for decades, including during the Obama administration. “And President Trump’s approach on it has been on a comprehensive scale, hitting it from every resource and every tool and every authority that the U.S. government has — not just military, not just intelligence community, but law enforcement as well.” The DEA official pointed to ramped-up coordinated efforts from his agency as well as Customs and Border Protection and the Treasury Department and said he thought that, when comparing the Trump and Obama strategies, the “more robust approach has had a bigger effect and a bigger impact on the overall criminal network” and “a more positive effect for our national security.”
Once again we are seeing how Obama and the Obama administration empowered Iran, and even drug trafficking networks and narco-terrorism networks connected to Iranian proxies like Hezbollah. Obama not only allowed Iran a nuke deal, tons of uranium to come into Iran from Russia, and $150 billion dollars of taxpayer money into Iran...But a DEA official is basically pointing out that President Trump is combating a narco-terrorism network connected to Iran's proxy network that the Obama administration ignored. This reveal basically shows their is a problem at the border with Iranian proxy narco-terrorist networks at the border, as this DEA official has pointed out ramped up coordinated efforts with border authorities against Iranian proxy narco-terrorism networks. Not only did Obama hand Iran the nuke deal with billions in taxpayer funds, but the Obama administration was ignoring an Iranian proxy narco terrorism network at the border...Something now targeted by the Trump administration.
