President Trump slammed “anti-police prejudice” at an event for fallen law enforcement on Capitol Hill Tuesday.
“If we want to bring down violent crime, then we must stand up for our police. We must confront and condemn dangerous anti-police prejudice.”
“Can you believe this prejudice with respect to our police? We’re not going to let bad things happen to our police. so we must show appreciation, gratitude and respect for those who police our streets and patrol our communities. in 2016, an officer was assaulted in America on an average of every 10 minutes. Can you believe that? It’s outrageous and it’s unacceptable. we must end the attacks on our police, and we must end them right now.”
Trump also told the stories of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. (RELATED: Trump Tells The Story Of A Fallen Border Patrol Agent — It Will Bring Tears To Your Eyes)
