It was this declaration which got him elected as President of the United States in the first place.
Over the last few years, many have forgotten that message.
Well here’s a few reminders:
President Trump followed through on his promise to fight the Deep State by creating Executive Order 13818 back on December 20, 2017.
This order blocks the property of persons involved in serious human rights abuse or corruption.

You’ll note that the link to the order has been removed from the White House website.
Why is that I wonder?..
It still exists here though.
Here’s just a small portion of Executive Order 13818 from the American Presidency Project:
I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.
I therefore determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

For comparison sake, Joe Biden also declared his own war.
The difference is that his war was declared on over 80 million American citizens:
