Anti-sex trafficking activist and filmmaker Jaco Booyens told Fox News host Mark Levin there is “no question” President Donald Trump has done more than previous presidents to address sex trafficking.
Booyens discussed Trump’s background fighting sex trafficking in a segment of “Life, Liberty and Levin” that aired Sunday. He also praised Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the role it plays in protecting victims of sex trafficking.
“This president, Donald Trump, has done more to try to address this than previous presidents? Barack Obama?” Levin asked Booyens.
Booyens’ film “8 Days” tells the story of a teenager who is sex trafficked after sneaking out to a party.
Booyens said sex trafficking is a crime that “doesn’t ask if you are conservative or liberal” but is instead a sex addiction Hollywood and the internet fuel.
“Someone doesn’t wake up in the morning saying I want to buy sex with a 12-year-old girl — oh and by the way she has to be a virgin,” Booyens said. “They start somewhere else.”
“It starts with a pornographic culture, soft porn,” the anti-sex trafficking activist added. “It’s the objectification of women, which we as a country have done a great job at completely objectifying women to sex objects and emasculating men.”
Booyens also told Levin that CNN and MSNBC had shown no interest in giving his work a public platform. “I say that not to point finger or blame,” he said. “That’s just a fact.”
