President Trump is very clear about this:
We should SUPPORT those who put their lives on the line every day for their country. This includes police officers and other emergency responders, as well as the military. This is starkly different than the position of his predecessor, who didn’t seem to give two figs about cops and men in uniform.
Remember the day when we were supposed to honor such individuals? Did you see the VERY large difference between how Trump and Republicans responded and what Barack Obama and Democrats said…?
That should say it all. But to drive the point home further, one of Trump’s first actionable items is simple: Blue Lives DO Matter!
As Time reported earlier, not long after Trump was ushered in as the 45th U.S. president, the White House released six issue statements on its website and one was called, “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community.”
The Trump administration has pledged to be “a law and order administration” while eradicating what is most certainly a “dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America.” Obviously, this is a full 180 from Obama and we just couldn’t be happier.
This also resonates with Trump fans, as one of his big campaign platforms revolved around law and order. On top of which, the statement in question puts movements like Black Lives Matter in the crosshairs, as it’s obvious that such groups have discriminated against police officers in dangerous ways.
“‘Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter,’ the Trump administration says, while adding that ‘supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens’ ability to protect themselves.’”
Hell yeah! This is exactly why we needed someone like Trump in the White House! Maybe we’ll stop putting terrorists before our own authorities (good job there, California), and maybe police officers won’t be scared of civilians.
Their jobs are hard enough and it shouldn’t be an administration’s goal to make their jobs HARDER.
