President Donald Trump met with representatives from the Fraternal Order of Police at the White House Tuesday, and during an on-camera press session, he pledged to always support our nation’s men and women in blue.
“As I traveled the country during my campaign, I had the great privilege to spend time with amazing police officers who risk their lives every day to keep us safe, and I made a crucial pledge,” POTUS stated. “We will always support — and you people know that better than anybody, you know me — the incredible men and women of law enforcement.”
“I will always have your back 100 percent like you’ve always had mine and you showed that on November 8th.”
“Sadly our police are often prevented from doing their jobs,” Trump continued. “When policing is reduced, the main victims are the citizens of our society.”
“In too many communities, violent crime is on the rise, and in too many places our citizens have not been safe for a very very long time. These are the painful realities many in Washington, D.C. do not want to talk about. They just don’t want to hear about it.”
