Is Trump Dealing With Domestic Extremism?

former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson worried that the Trump administration isn’t addressing the issue of domestic extremism “to the same extent” as Obama once did.

Johnson stated, “The threat exists among domestic extremists, as well as what we refer to as terrorist-inspired extremism from overseas. We began funding these local organizations to counter violent extremism late in the Obama presidency, and we wanted to fund groups that would address domestic extremism, groups like Life After Hate, for example, for those who are leaving extremist domestic groups. And my fear is that the current administration is not dealing with it in the same way, to the same extent.”

Do you agree with Johnson?
