If there’s one thing Trump loves, it’s the police. The guy has made it abundantly clear that he’s not believing those “hands up, don’t shoot” lies and he’s not buying the narrative that cops are bad because a few of them screw up every year. Our country depends on the rule of law. Period.
Here’s the latest example of Trump understanding that concept.
From BizPac Review:
The president spread a little holiday cheer at his Mar-a-Lago residence, providing “a full Christmas spread” for local law enforcement, members of the military and Secret Service, CNN reported.
Christmas dinner meals were served throughout the day Monday for those working to keep Trump safe, with the president picking up the tab for the holiday feast.
“All shifts” were ensured a meal, according to CNN reporter Noah Gray.
Gotta love it. So refreshing to hear that.
It’s pretty awesome how much Trump respects the police.
From CBS News:
President Trump on Friday said that law enforcement in the U.S. deserve a greater level of respect and gratitude than they currently receive. Speaking at the FBI National Academy graduation ceremony, he also said that criminals who kill police should receive the death penalty.
Mr. Trump called on the audience to deliver a message back to their precincts: “The president of the United States has your back, 100 percent.”
The president said that America’s police has a “true friend” in the White House with him as president, and that he will be “more loyal than anyone else can be.”
During his speech, he began speaking about the nation’s crime rate and said, “What the hell is going on in Chicago? What the hell is happening there?” He said that police departments nationwide are “overstretched” and “totally under-appreciated — except by me.”
“This anti-police sentiment is wrong and it’s dangerous and we will not stand for it,” he said. “We believe criminals who kill police officers should get the death penalty.”
Trump is absolutely right.
From Fox News:
President Trump declared Monday that attacks on law enforcement “are a stain on the very fabric of our society” and “must end right now,” during the National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service.
The president made respect for law enforcement a theme of his remarks outside the U.S. Capitol.
He urged Americans to thank police officers on the beat and vowed to make it a “personal priority” to ensure police are treated “with honor and respect.”
“The attacks on our police are a stain on the very fabric of our society,” he said, calling law enforcement the “thin blue line between civilization and chaos.”
That’s what a leader looks like.
Of course, there are bad police officers.
However, the vast majority of cops are good people trying to do the right thing.
Alienating them and disrespecting them is not only silly it’s low brow.
Don’t be like the liberal left.
It’s a bad look.
Wouldn’t it have been nice to hear that from Obama?
