Mr. Trump:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch to:

(a) enforce all Federal laws in order to enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers, and thereby all Americans;

Thomas Paine (or Pain;[1] February 9, 1737 [O.S. January 29, 1736][Note 1] -- June 8, 1809) was an English-American political activist, philosopher, political theorist, and revolutionary.

This shall be known as the "what is good for the goose rule" and shall remain in effect as long as any United States government whether federal, state, local, tribal or otherwise that derives its reason to exist from those it governs. If at any time such government no longer is subject to the goose rule, or willfully disregards the goose rule, the people shall no longer have any allegiance to that governance and may without regard for prejudice or force, withdraw their consent to be governed.

Mr. Trump:

(b) develop strategies, in a process led by the Department of Justice (Department) and within the boundaries of the Constitution and existing Federal laws, to further enhance the protection and safety of Federal, State, tribal, and local law enforcement officers; and
