Trump smacks down calls to defund the police

As some Democrat leaders cave to the demands of radical leftists, Donald Trump refuses to bow to the mob.

Though Trump has begun the process of meeting with leaders to enact law enforcement reforms, he ended any speculation that he is willing to defund or dismantle the police. 

“We won’t be defunding our police. We won’t be dismantling our police,” Mr. Trump said on Monday. “Sometimes you’ll see some horrible things like we witnessed recently, but 99, I say 99.9, but let’s go with 99% of them are great, great people.”

Trump held a law enforcement round table on Monday to assess possible reforms addressing the long-standing problem of police brutality but made it clear that he stands with the nation’s officers.

Trump continued that despite the hysteria building in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the US’s crime statistics are “among the best numbers we’ve ever had in terms of recorded history.”

“There’s a reason for less crime, it’s because we have great law enforcement. I’m very proud of them,” He said.

Americans tend to agree with Trump that police reforms to amp up accountability and improve training are reasonable actions but that defunding the police is not the answer.

According to a report by the Cato Institue, “few people support calls to abolish or defund the police: 9 in 10 black, white and Hispanic Americans oppose reducing the number of police officers in their community—and a third say their community needs more officers the Cato survey found.”

  1. The Clintons and the Obamas had 16 years and did nothing for the people, the country, they were to busy whats in this for me. Then we get a man that truly loves this country and wants to make things better for all. Democ Rats cant let that happen so they will do and say along with the fake news make up and turn things around to suit there agenda. Come November 2020 they gonna need there crying towels for sure. TRUMP 2020 get out there and vote TRUMP 2020

    1. wat denken ze nou, als er geen politie meer is, wat er dan gebeurt??
      chaos !!! brandstichten, winkels beroven, vrouwen verkrachten, etc want er is dan toch niemand meer die er iets tegen doet. zo een vreselijke domme gedachtengang…wie denken ze dat dan de orde zal handhaven?? sharia ??

  2. I say this in truth knowing what I am about to confess. I was married to a police officer and good man for 25 years. I watched a good man change from my best friend to someone I didn’t know. He witnessed things no person should have to see, he became a stranger to me. This was devastating for me and changed me as well. No he didn’t become a bad cop, but the blue code of conduct prevented him from turning in the dirty no good ones. Been nearly 40 years now he is still in law enforcement but that blue code continues to devide all people of all colors when it comes to police officers. Think about the three officers that did nothing to stop a murderer. Take down the blue shield and then you can fix this otherwise nothing changes.

    1. Mu dad and his younger brother were Chicago policemen for 38 years…Dad retired first and his younger brother retired 2 years after him…They have seen far worst than what the protester did, for 2 or 3 days…My dad had to put up the Gangsters on the Southside and Westside..Capone from Cicero, Illinois…Luciano, Tony (Tuna) Accardo from the Southside to the Westside, River Forest, Illinois…Then came the title: Mafia, the word came from Italy..Mafia from Illinois…Emwood Park, Merlrose Park, Northlake, Elmwood Park, South Elgin, Maywood for the Race Track…And Downtown Chicago…It used to be all Booze, and bank robberies..Today, it’s all about drugs and the Underground..
      The Mafia today, are very quiet and make their businesses quietly…

  3. Back when I was a youngster the police in my community were awesome they understood kids stages in life and took the time to talk to us and help show us a path of righteousness. Today there is no integrity, pride , moral compass ! It’s all about power , greed and not caring about others like there above the law . I say weed out the police that have a lot of complaints and bad issues on there record and start teaching moral integrity if possible get rid of bad apples and let us all heal by all of are actions and start caring about each other instead of just are self’s . We won’t make it without owner good policing !

  4. Thank you PresidentTrump for upholding our police officers. Yes there are some BAD COPS, but also we have LOTS OF BAD POLITICIANS. Are we going to get rid of ALL them. How l wish that could happen. Vote thecrooked politicians out in November. Keep TRUMP/PENCE and all who know right from wrong. The DemocRATS doesn’t know that anymore—they are crazy. Lawless and unthankful for what you have done for our country.👏👏👏👍👍👍🙏🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  5. Hey, l know what let’s do X—DEFUND ALL THE CROOKED POLITICIANS IN WASHINGTON AND WE GET RID OF ALL THIS HATRED AND UNREST IN OUR COUNTRY!!!!🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏

  6. you got it, Booster!! If politicians were held accountable for the things they do to undermine society, we’d all be better off. Another thing that should be defunded is “fake news!” Our media largely helps to stir unrest, and hatred among “the classes.” All Americans deserve to be safe, and to have an equal chance to better themselves…..unfortunately, too many politicians smile, and pat themselves on the back as they give us “handouts” to buy re-election thinking we’re all too stupid to discern their self centered plan. Almighty God sees…and they will all be held accountable one day.

  7. Thank you President Trump for holding a meeting to work toward improving the training for our police members. For every bad bad officer, there are 99 good ones. Their job is hard, but they deserve our respect and I believe reviewing their training procedures will be a good step. I am thankful for the protection they give us. Every job will have some who need to be replaced or disciplined, but we shouldn’t hold all the good servants responsible for the few bad ones.

  8. I agree with Trump! No need to defund the police because of a few bad apples. It was definitely a disgrace what the officer (s) did, regardless of color. It happens to other races also, they just don’t get the publicity! I’ve been pulled over by both good and sarcastic police. Always will be a bad apple in a bushel. Get rid of the Unions, that’s the first thing and give better training.

  9. do people ever think what will happen if police are not around. I for one have wanted to know why he wa taken in the first place??
