Trump Promises New Police Protections

Former President Donald Trump made a number of promises to protect police this week following the slaying of an NYPD officer during a traffic stop. The former president’s statement came after a number of conservatives criticized leading Democrats for what they call attacks on police officers.

The former president made the announcement during a campaign event in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

“We will very importantly restore law and order to our country, and I’m going to indemnify all police officers and law enforcement officials throughout the United States to protect them from being destroyed by the radical left for taking strong actions on crime,” he said.

“When I’m re-elected I will crack down on the left-wing jurisdictions that refuse to prosecute dangerous criminals,” said Trump.

The former president has received considerable support from a number of police organizations. This week the Police Officers Association of Michigan endorsed Trump.

Association President Jim Tignanelli told the former president “Today on behalf of 12,000 law enforcement people that the Police Officers Association of Michigan represent, we want you to accept our endorsement for President of the United States.”

Last week Trump visited the wake of slain NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller in New York State. The former president spoke to the family of the fallen officer and promised to restore law and order to the country.

Around the same time, President Joe Biden attended an expensive fundraiser in New York City alongside former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

There was a significant contrast while Biden spent time with celebrities while Trump waited in the rain alongside Diller’s family and police officers.

“The other day I was very honored to visit the family of an amazing man, New York Police Detective Jonathan Diller. You read about it, who was gunned down by a vicious thug, who was originally arrested by different law enforcement agencies over twenty-one times for very serious crimes. And the person with them was a known killer,” Trump said in Wisconsin Tuesday.
