Donald Trump is known for his strong stance on immigration, strong support for veterans, and strong support for police officers…oh, and patriotism!
Police officers are clearly under attack across the country, particularly from those who feel cops are just out to kill black people. Not to mention, liberal protesters find it approporiate to burn the American flag virtually anytime something doesn’t go their way.
Well, Trump has made it clear what would happen to cop killers, months ago…
From The Hill:
“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order, if I win, will be to sign a strong, strong statement that would go out to the country, out to the world, anybody killing a police man, a police woman, a police officer, anybody killing a police officer, the death penalty is going to happen,” he [Trump] said.
“We can’t let this go,” he added, speaking to a New Hampshire crowd alongside the New England Police Benevolent Association[…]
“I want to let you know, the police and law enforcement in this country, I will never ever let them down,” he said.
“The job they do and the job all you in this room do is second to none, and everyone in our country knows that.”
Trump also just made a statement that will make flag burners think twice before they set fire to the stars and stripes…
From Washington Post:
President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened loss of citizenship or jail for those who burn the American flag, saying such protests — which the Supreme Court has declared to be free speech — should carry “consequences.”
Trump offered his thoughts in an early-morning post on Twitter, saying, “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag.”
You can bet Black Lives Matter and most liberals across the country will not be happy about this, but you can rest assured Trump doesn’t care what they.
