Law and order has always been a central part of President Trump’s political brand.
Since mass riots across the nation and left-wing calls to defund the police, the president’s support for law and order has reached new levels.
Trump and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continue to work with one another to bring an end to violence happening in various cities; however, Democrat state leaders are complicating this process by refusing to accept help from the federal government.
Amid calls to defund the police, the president has clearly articulated his support for police and the law enforcement community. Furthermore, Trump also continues to back policies that allow police to do their jobs.
This is why the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed President Trump’s re-election campaign on Friday, confirms Breitbart News.
