WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he will dispatch more federal civilian police agencies to violent hotbed cities where local police are being overrun. Trump already sent Department of Homeland Security officers to Portland, Oregon and pledged to help Chicago this week.
“My first duty as President is to protect the American people, and today I’m taking action to fulfill that sacred obligation,” the President said. “In recent weeks, there has been a radical movement to defund, dismantle, and dissolve our police departments. Extreme politicians have joined this anti-police crusade and relentlessly vilified our law enforcement heroes. To look at it from any standpoint, the effort to shut down policing in their own communities has led to a shocking explosion of shootings, killings, murders, and heinous crimes of violence. This bloodshed must end. This bloodshed will end.”
A surge of federal law enforcement is coming to a city overrun by protesters and anarchists near you.
“Today, I’m announcing a surge of federal law enforcement into American communities plagued by violent crime. We’ll work every single day to restore public safety, protect our nation’s children, and bring violent perpetrators to justice. We’ve been doing it, and you’ve been seeing what’s happening all around the country. We’ve just started this,” he added.
