Since the Trump presidency has begun, police officers have had a lot more support from the federal government.
Two big reasons to celebrate:
First, our president won’t be saying our officers”act stupidly,” and second, the Department of Justice won’t be trying to usurp their authority by federalizing the crap out of them.
Our NEW president understands the danger that our police officers face on a daily basis. It’s why he vowed to support our brave men and women in uniform on Day One.
He is also acutely aware that our lost officers leave behind families who remain saddened, but stalwart.
“During his speech at the 36th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Monday, President Donald Trump honored all of America’s police officers who have fallen in the line of duty, as well as their families.
However, he took a little extra time out for the son of one of those officers, a 6-year-old boy named Micah.
In a video that’s quickly gone viral, the president reached under the podium and flipped his personal cap to the young boy who lost his police officer father in a gun battle in Phoenix, Arizona, last year.

“‘I want you to know that patriotic Americans of all backgrounds truly support and love our police,’ the president said.
