President Donald Trump Delivered A Speech To Police Officers On Long Island Friday

President Trump delivered a speech Friday to police officers on Long Island. There he highlighted the notorious MS-13, who has been a focal point of the administration’s “America First” agenda.

Trump also highlighted the recent raid done by ICE agents on Long Island and further commended the work of Law Enforcement Agents around the country stating that he would support law enforcement 100% and like no other president before him.

Trump took to calling perpetrators of violent crimes “animals” on a few occasions.

The President also made some comments about how officers should treat suspects.

“When you see these towns and you see these thugs getting thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in rough,” Trump said. “I said ‘please don’t be too nice.’ like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head. You know the way you put their hand up like don’t hit their head and they just killed somebody? I said ‘you can take the hand off.”

Trump’s comments have drawn condemnation from law enforcement agents around the country and other important figures such as Maxine Waters.
