No matter which side of the political aisle you’re on, or whether you have no side at all, it’s hard to argue that there has been a President in recent history that has been more publicly supportive of Law Enforcement than the current one.
Love him or hate him, President Donald Trump has stood with law enforcement officers, vowing to bring them back to a position of honor and respect. A far cry from others who have created an environment that has allowed for the current war on our police to reach critical levels.
If you take some time and wade through the many inaccurate news stories regarding the President, and tune out the news stations that are continuing to dredge up the same narratives, you will find one major positive consistent message- President Donald Trump loves and respects the men and women in law enforcement.
In recent months President Trump defended the NYPD officers that have seen a rash of attacks against their ranks with water and other items being thrown on them while on duty. The President tweeted in July:
“We love our Law Enforcement Officers all around this great Country. What took place in NYC with water being tossed on NYPD officers was a total disgrace,” he also challenged Mayor Bill de Blasio to take action “It is time for Mayor Bill de Blasio to STAND UP for those who protect our lives and serve us all so well.”
