TO ORLANDO, FLORIDA, WHERE PRESIDENT TRUMP LANDED A SHORT TIME AGO, AND HE IS THERE TO SPEAK WITH A HOST OF POLICE CHIEFS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. AS YOU CAN SEE THERE HE IS GREETING GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT, WHO HAS PLENTY ON HIS PLATE AS THEY PREPARE FOR HURRICANE MICHAEL. PRESIDENT TRUMP IS APPROACHING THE PODIUM NOW. LET’S LISTEN IN NOW. >>YOU CAN SIT. IT’S GREAT TO BE WITH YOU. AND I WANT TO THANK CHIEF DEKMAR FOR THE WONDERFUL INTRODUCTION AND FOR YOUR LIFETIME OF DISTINGUISHED SERVICE. A VERY SPECIAL FRIEND OF MINE. I’M THRILLED TO BE HERE IN THE GREAT STATE OF FLORIDA, WITH THE INCREDIBLE MEN AND WOMEN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. ON BEHALF OF ALL AMERICANS I WANT TO EXPRESS OUR ETERNAL GRATITUDE FOR WHAT YOU DO EVERY SINGLE DAY TO PROTECT OUR FAMILIES, DEFEND OUR STREETS, AND TAKE DOWN CRIMINALS. AND WHAT YOU DO IS KEEP AMERICA SAFE. AND NOBODY DOES IT BETTER THAN YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU. AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOUR AMAZING FAMILIES. BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT WITHOUT THEM YOU COULDN’T DO IT. AND THEY’RE HERE, AND THEY ARE INDEED FANTASTIC PEOPLE. SO THANK YOU TO THE FAMILIES. APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH. [APPLAUSE] WE ARE THRILLED TO BE JOINED TODAY BY A TRUE FRIEND OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT. AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT RICK HAS BEEN INCREDIBLE WHEN IT COMES TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. ANYTIME YOU NEED FUNDS FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, HE’S ON THE PHONE. MR. PRESIDENT, WE NEED MORE FUNDS. WHAT’S IT FOR THIS TIME, RICK? IT’S FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT. AND I SAY YOU GOT THEM. AND SPEAKING OF THAT. YOU GOT THEM. [APPLAUSE] YOU GOT THEM. WHEN LAW ENFORCEMENT WANTS IT, THEY’RE REASONABLE. THEY WANT IT, AND WHAT YOU DO IS SO INCREDIBLE. SO I JUST WANT TO SAY RICK IS A TREMENDOUS GOVERNOR, AND HE IS YOUR BIGGEST FAN. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND ALSO, ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR BIG FANS, I WILL TELL YOU THAT IS ATTORNEY GENERAL, PAM BONDY WHO IS WITH US TODAY. AND THANK YOU, PAM. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WHEREVER YOU MAY BE. SHE’S IN THIS BIG ROOM, SOME PLACE. THANK YOU. INCREDIBLE WOMAN. THANK YOU AS WELL TO OUR DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL ROD ROSENSTEIN FOR BEING HERE. FLEW DOWN TOGETHER. THE PRESS WANTS TO KNOW WHAT DID YOU TALK ABOUT. BUT WE HAD A VERY GOOD TALK, I WILL SAY. THAT BECAME A VERY BIG STORY, ACTUALLY, FOLKS. WE HAD A GOOD TALK. AS HURRICANE MICHAEL NEARS LANDFALL, WE ARE WORKING WITH STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS IN FLORIDA TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS AND WE URGE ALL RESIDENTS TO BE PREPARED AND TO HEED LOCAL OFFICIALS. I TOLD RICK SCOTT THAT WE’RE READY FOR YOU. WE HAVE ALREADY BRIEFED FEMA, AND FEMA’S GETTING PREPARED, AND IT LOOKS LIKE A BIG ONE. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? IT LOOKS LIKE ANOTHER BIG ONE. BUT WE’VE HANDLED THEM WELL. WE’VE HANDLED THEM VERY WELL. AND THAT INCLUDES THE ONE THAT JUST LEFT US IN FLORIDA. IT NEVER ENDS. BUT WE’RE ALL PREPARED, AND HOPEFULLY IT WON’T BE AS BAD AS IT’S LOOKING. IT LOOKED A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO LIKE IT’S NOT GOING TO BE MUCH, AND NOW IT’S LOOKING LIKE IT COULD BE A BIG ONE. I WANT TO ALSO EXTEND MY THANKS TO ORLANDO CHIEF JOHN MINA AND THE ENTIRE ORLANDO POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR HOSTING US IN THIS GREAT CITY. JOHN, WHERE IS JOHN? THANK YOU, JOHN. GREAT JOB. GREAT CITY. SAFE CITY TOO, JOHN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. GREAT JOB. I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE BOARD OF IACP AND CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR INCOMING PRESIDENT CHIEF PAUL SELL. WHERE IS CHIEF? GOOD CHIEF. I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR THE CHIEF. I KNOW THE CHIEF. THAT MEANS I GUESS I HAVE TO BE HERE NEXT YEAR, CHIEF, IS THAT RIGHT? LOOKING LIKE THAT, RIGHT? IT’S OKAY. FOR YOU GUYS, ANYTHING I CAN DO I’LL DO. VERY IMPORTANTLY — [APPLAUSE] I WANT TO RECOGNIZE OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT PARTNERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD WHO HAVE TRAVELED HERE TO SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCE, AND TO STRENGTHEN THE FINAL COOPERATION THAT WE ALL PRACTICE TOGETHER. WE HAVE GREAT, GREAT COOPERATION ALL OVER THE WORLD. WE DEEPLY VALUE YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND YOUR PARTNERSHIP. AND THANK YOU VERY MUCHER FOR — VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] THIS YEAR, WE PROUDLY CELEBRATE THE 125th ANNIVERSARY OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CHIEFS OF POLICE. IT’S A GREAT GROUP. TODAY I STAND BEFORE YOU AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO TELL YOU THAT MY ADMINISTRATION WILL ALWAYS HONOR, CHERISH, AND SUPPORT THE MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE, AND WE ARE PROUD TO DO IT. [APPLAUSE] WORKING TOGETHER WE HAVE ACHIEVED EXTRAORDINARY PROGRESS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST VIOLENT CRIME. WE UNDERSTAND THAT REDUCING CRIME BEGINS WITH RESPECTING LAW ENFORCEMENT. FOR TOO MANY YEARS, WE HAVE WATCHED POLITICIANS ESCALATE POLITICAL ATTACKS ON OUR COURAGEOUS POLICE OFFICERS. AND I’VE NEVER SEEN IT MORE THAN OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS. IT’S DISGRACEFUL. POLITICIANS WHO SPREAD THIS DANGEROUS ANTI-POLICE SENTIMENT MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR CRIMINALS, AND MORE DANGEROUS FOR LAW- ABIDING CITIZENS. [APPLAUSE] AND THEY ALSO MAKE IT MORE DANGEROUS FOR POLICE. AND IT MUST STOP, AND IT MUST STOP NOW. BEFORE I TOOK OFFICE LESS THAN TWO YEARS AGO, OUR NATION WAS EXPERIENCING A HISTORIC SURGE IN VIOLENT CRIME. IN 2015, 2016, ADDITIONAL 128,000 VIOLENT CRIMES WERE COMMITTED NATIONWIDE COMPARED TO THE TWO PREVIOUS YEARS. THAT’S A TREMENDOUS NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL CRIME. OVER THE SAME PERIOD, WE WITNESSED THE STEEPEST TWO YEAR CONSECUTIVE INCREASE IN MURDERS IN NEARLY HALF A CENTURY. BUT WE ARE TURNING THAT TIDE AROUND VERY RAPIDLY, AS YOU ALL KNOW IN THIS ROOM. WE ARE TAKING BACK OUR STREETS FROM DRUG LORDS, GANGS, AND CRIMES. WE ARE BEING TOUGH. WE’RE BEING SMART. BY THE END OF THIS YEAR MURDERS IN MAJOR CITIES ARE ESTIMATED TO DROP BY CLOSE TO 10% FROM THEIR LEVELS IN 2016. AND I HAVE DIRECTED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE TO IMMEDIATELY GO TO THE GREAT CITY OF CHICAGO TO HELP STRAIGHTEN OUT THE TERRIBLE SHOOTING WAVE. WE WANT TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT FAST. THERE’S NO REASON FOR WHAT’S GOING ON THERE. [APPLAUSE] I’VE TOLD THEM TO WORK WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO TRY TO CHANGE THE TERRIBLE DEAL THE CITY OF CHICAGO ENTERED INTO WITH ACLU, WHICH TIES LAW ENFORCEMENT’S HANDS. AND TO STRONGLY CONSIDER STOP AND FRISK. IT WORKS AND WAS MEANT FOR PROBLEMS LIKE CHICAGO. IT WAS MEANT FOR IT. STOP AND FRISK. [APPLAUSE] AND RUDY GIULIANI WHEN HE WAS MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY HAD A VERY STRONG PROGRAM OF STOP AND FRISK AND IT WENT FROM AN UNACCEPTABLY DANGEROUS CITY TO ONE OF THE SAFEST CITIES IN THE COUNTRY, AND I THINK THE SAFEST BIG CITY IN THE COUNTRY, SO IT WORKS. GOT TO BE SAFELY APPLIED, BUT STOP AND FRISK WORKS. THE CRIME SPREE IS A TERRIBLE BLIGHT ON THAT CITY, AND WE’LL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO GET IT DONE. I KNOW THE LAW ENFORCEMENT PEOPLE IN CHICAGO, AND I KNOW HOW GOOD THEY ARE. THEY COULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM IF THEY WERE SIMPLY ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB, AND DO THEIR JOB PROPERLY, AND THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT TO DO. SO CHICAGO, WE’RE GOING TO START WORKING WITH YOU, AS OF TODAY. [APPLAUSE] THANK YOU. IN THE FISCAL YEAR 2018, MY ADMINISTRATION BROUGHT CHARGES AGAINST MORE FEDERAL FIREARM DEFENDANTS, AND MORE VIOLENT CRIMINALS THAN EVER BEFORE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. AND TO HELP FORMER INMATES BECOME LAW-ABIDING AND PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY, WE ARE ALSO WORKING ON A PRISON REFORM BILL. VERY, VERY BIG AND COMPREHENSIVE ONE. AND THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN, I THINK WE’VE ALREADY DONE. WE HAVE RECORD NUMBERS OF JOBS RIGHT NOW IN THE UNITED STATES. THERE’S NEVER BEEN A TIME WHERE MORE PEOPLE ARE WORKING IN OUR COUNTRY THAN RIGHT NOW. [APPLAUSE] AND OUR UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS IN ALMOST EVERY CATEGORY ARE AT RECORD LOWS. THEY ARE RECORD LOWS. AFRICAN AMERICAN, BEST IN HISTORY. ASIAN AMERICAN, BEST IN HISTORY. HISPANIC AMERICAN, BEST IN HISTORY. WE ARE DOING INCREDIBLY WELL AS AN ECONOMY, AND THAT’S A GREAT THING WHEN YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE COMING OUT OF PRISON, UNABLE TO GET A JOB. TOTALLY UNABLE TO GET A JOB. IT’S A HOPELESS SITUATION. NOW THEY’RE GETTING JOBS TO A CERTAIN EXTENT, AND TO A LARGE EXTENT, BECAUSE WE’RE DOING SO WELL. EMPLOYERS ARE FORCED TO TAKE PEOPLE THAT THEY MAY BE WOULDN’T HAVEDONE, AND SOME OF THOSE EMPLOYERS GET BACK TO ME, AND SAY MR. PRESIDENTS, IT’S AMAZING HOW GOOD THESE PEOPLE ARE. NOT ALL OF THEM. NOT ALL OF ANYBODY OR ANY CATEGORY IS GOING TO BE GREAT. BUT TREMENDOUS RESPONSE. AND THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN GIVEN A SECOND, OR EVEN IN SOME CASES A THIRD SHOT AT IT, AND THEY’RE DOING REALLY WELL. SO THE ECONOMY BEING SO GREAT, AND THE JOBS PICTURING ABOUT — PICTURE BEING SO STRONG, PEOPLE ARE GETTING A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. I JUST WANT TO THANK LAW ENFORCEMENT. IT’S A GREAT THING. AND IN PARTICULAR, I HAVE TO THANK THE IACP FOR WORKING WITH US ON THIS EFFORT, AND FOR ENDORSING IMPORTANT PRISON REFORM LEGISLATION ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, AND WE’RE DOING FEDERAL LEGISLATION, BUT ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. YOU FOLKS HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC. EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY ADMINISTRATION WE WILL STAND FOR LAW, ORDER, AND JUSTICE. JUST TWO DAYS AGO THE SENATE CONFIRMED A SUPREMELY QUALIFIED NOMINEE WHO WILL BE A FAITHFUL DEFENDER OF THE RULE OF LAW. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] AND WILL DEFEND THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. THE NEWEST SUPREME COURT JUSTICE, BRETT KAVANAUGH [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] AND I WILL TELL YOU WHEN I DECIDED ON BRETT, AND WE HAVE TREMENDOUS TALENT IN OUR LEGAL SYSTEM. BUT I DECIDED ON BRETT. I SAID HE’S FLAWLESS. A FLAWLESS PERSON. THE BEST STUDENT. A GREAT SCHOLAR. INCREDIBLE RECORD OVER MANY YEARS, AND YET HE’S A YOUNG MAN. I SAID BRETT, CONGRATULATIONS, THIS IS GOING TO BE A PIECE OF CAKE GET YOU CONFIRMED. THIS IS GOING TO BE SO EASY. IT SHOULD GO QUICKLY, NICELY. DON’T EVEN WORRY. HE WAS SO THANKFUL. HE SAID, MR. PRESIDENT, THIS IS THE GREATEST HONOR OF MY LIFE. UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT. THE GREATEST OF MY LIFE. SO I HAVEN’T HEARD HIM SAY THAT AGAIN TO ME. BUT HE’S A GREAT PERSON, AND IT WAS VERY, VERY UNFAIR WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM. FALSE CHARGES. FALSE ACCUSATIONS. HORRIBLE STATEMENTS THAT WERE TOTALLY UNTRUE, THAT HE KNEW NOTHING ABOUT. FRANKLY TERMS THAT HE HAD NEVER HEARD IN HIS LIFE. HE WAS THIS, HE WAS THAT. HE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THESE TERMS. WAS A DISGRACEFUL SITUATION, BROUGHT ABOUT PEOPLE PEOPLE WHO ARE EVIL, AND HE TOUGHED IT OUT. WE ALL TOUGHED IT OUT TOGETHER. WE HAVE TO THANK THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS THAT FOUGHT SO HARD FOR THIS, BECAUSE IT WASN’T EASY, AND IT WAS A GREAT HONOR TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS SITUATION. A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE SAID LET’S GIVE IT UP, LET’S GO IN A DIFFERENT SITUATION. WE DON’T GIVE UP. YOU DON’T GIVE UP. JUST DON’T DO IT. HE’S GOING TO BE A GREAT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE. WATCH. A GREAT ONE. HE WILL BE A GREAT ONE. WE WILL PERFORM THE SWEARING IN TONIGHT AT 7:00 P.M. AT THE WHITE HOUSE. THAT’S A VERY EXCITING. SO I LEAVE HERE, AND I GO HOME, AND I SWEAR IN A MAN WHO WILL BE A TRULY GREAT UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT JUSTICE, THAT’S GOING TO BE MY HONOR. THANK YOU. I’M GOING TO TELL HIM ABOUT THE SPONTANEOUS APPLAUSE BEFORE I EVEN FINISH YOU PEOPLE. BECAUSE YOU KNEW WHAT I WAS ABOUT TO SAY, AND I DIDN’T SAY IT AND YOU STARTED BEFORE I COMPLETED. THAT’S THE KIND OF, THAT’S ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, I’M DOING RALLIES, AND PEOPLE ARE LOVING THAT MAN, AND LOVING THAT CHOICE, SO I THINK WE’RE ALL GOING TO BE VERY HAPPY IN ORDER TO KEEP EVERY AMERICAN SAFE WE ARE ALSO MAKING OFFICER SAFETY A TOP PRIORITY. IN 2016, AN OFFICER WAS ASSAULTED IN AMERICA AN AVERAGE OF EVERY 9 MINUTES. 11 OFFICERS WERE SHOT IN FLORENCE, KILLED AND NUMEROUS INJURED. OUR HEARTS BREAK FOR THE FAMILY OF FALLEN OFFICER, CARAWAY. WE PRAY FOR HIS LOVED ONES AND THOSE OFFICERS STILL RECOVERING. WHEN AN OFFICER IS ASSAULTED OR KILLED IT’S A WOUND INFLICTED UPON OUR ENTIRE NATION. [APPLAUSE]>>AND I HAVE TO SAY THIS, I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND ONE THING, HOW MUCH OUR COUNTRY LOVES YOU AND THE JOB YOU DO. YOU DON’T HEAR IT FROM THEM. [APPLAUSE]>>YOU DON’T HEAR IT FROM THEM. [APPLAUSE]>>THEY DON’T TELL YOU THE REAL FEELING. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>THEY DON’T TELL YOU THE TRUE FEELING BUT I KNOW THE TRUE FEELING. I KNOW THE TRUE FEELING. YOU DON’T HEAR IT FROM THE MEDIA, BUT I CAN TELL YOU I KNOW THE FEELING, AND THESE PEOPLE — THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY LOVE YOU. SO I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW IT DIRECT. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU. I LOVE HIM TOO. HE’S JUST NOT MY TYPE. I’M SORRY.>>[LAUGHTER]>>HE’S NOT MY TYPE. THANK YOU. ONE OF MY VERY FIRST ACTIONS AS PRESIDENT WAS TO DIRECT MY ADMINISTRATION TO TAKE ALL NECESSARY ACTION TO PROTECT LAW ENFORCEMENT FROM ACTS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST ALL OF YOU. WE BELIEVE THAT CRIMINALS WHO KILL OUR POLICE OFFICERS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY WITH TRIAL, BUT RAPIDLY AS POSSIBLE, NOT 15 YEARS LATER, 20 YEARS LATER, GET THE DEATH PENALTY. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>AND IMPORTANTLY WE ARE ALSO MAKING SURE YOU HAVE THE EQUIPMENT YOU NEED TO DO THE JOB. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>THAT’S WHY WE ARE ALLOWING LOCAL POLICE TO ACCESS SURPLUS MILITARY EQUIPMENT. [APPLAUSE]>>WE’VE BEEN DOING THIS FROM THE FIRST DAY OF MY ADMINISTRATION. WHERE OTHERS DIDN’T WANT YOU TO HAVE THAT EQUIPMENT FOR VERY STRANGE REASONS.>>[LAUGHTER]>>THEY SAID THEY LOOK TOO TOUGH. THEY LOOK TOO STRONG. IT’S NOT A GOOD LOOK. PEOPLE ARE SHOOTING AT YOU AND THEY’RE WORRIED ABOUT YOUR LOOK. SOME DAY YOU’LL EXPLAIN THAT ONE TO ME, PLEASE. I DON’T QUITE GET IT. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>EXPLAIN IT. THIS EQUIPMENT DOESN’T ONLY PROTECT YOUR LIVES AND SAFETY, IT PROJECTS THE LIVES AND SAFETY OF EVERY CITIZEN THAT YOU SERVE. DURING HURRICANE HARVEY, SURPLUS MILITARY EQUIPMENT HELPED RESCUE MORE THAN 9,000 PEOPLE. [APPLAUSE]>>WE ARE ALSO TAKING UNPRECEDENTED ACTION TO HELP OUR LOCAL POLICE FIGHT THE WORST DRUG EPIDEMIC IN OUR HISTORY. THE OPIOID CRISIS WHICH TOOK NEARLY 50,000 AMERICAN LIVES LAST YEAR. WE HAVE SECURED THE MOST FUNDING IN HISTORY TO GIVE YOU THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO HUNT DOWN THE TRAFFICKERS AND STOP THESE POISON US DRUGS FROM COMING INTO OUR COUNTRY. I’M ANNOUNCING $42.4 MILLION FOR THE HIGH INTENSITY DRUG TRAFFICKING AREAS PROGRAM TO ATTACK THIS EPIDEMIC. [APPLAUSE]>>THIS GRAND FUNDING WILL GO TO MORE THAN 50 INNOVATVE PROJECTS TARGETING THE GREATEST DRUG THREATS FACING THE UNITED STATES. AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT LAST YEAR IN THE BUDGET, THIS YEAR, ALSO LAST YEAR WE GOT $6 BILLION — $6 BILLION TO WORK ON THE OPIOID PROBLEM AT EVERY LEVEL. INCLUDING HELPING PEOPLE, REALLY HELPING PEOPLE THAT ARE IN NEED OF HELP. LAST YEAR WE INCREASED THE AVERAGE FEDERAL SENTENCE FOR DRUG TRAFFICKING TO ITS HIGHEST LEVEL SINCE 2013. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS, WE’RE ENSURING THERE ARE REAL TOUGH CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE WHO FLOOD OUR STREETS WITH DEADLY POISON. THANKS TO YOUR PARTNERSHIP, LAST YEAR OUR BRAVE, ICE AGENTS SEIZED 1 MILLION POUNDS OF NARCOTICS INCLUDING ALMOST 7,000 POUNDS OF HEROIN AND MORE THAN 2,300 POUNDS OF FENTANYL, SAVING THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES. AND THIS YEAR WE’RE WAY AHEAD OF THOSE NUMBERS. LAST YEAR ALONE, ICE REMOVED NEARLY 130,000 CRIMINAL ALIENS FROM OUR COUNTRY. AND AS YOU KNOW MY COMPETITORS DON’T LIKE THAT. THEY DON’T LIKE THAT. THAT’S THE OTHER THING YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN TO ME SOME DAY. INCLUDING THOUSANDS OF VICIOUS GANG MEMBERS AND MS 13 PREDATORS, THEY’RE GONE. [APPLAUSE]>>THEY’RE GONE. YET THESE BRAVE ICE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SUBJECTED TO SHAMELESS ATTACKS BY LEADING MEMBERS OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY INCLUDING OUTRAGEOUS CALLS TO ABOLISH ICE, AND ALSO THEY’RE NOT A BIG HELP TO US IN LAW ENFORCEMENT. THEY DON’T WANT TO GIVE US THE KIND OF FUNDS YOU PEOPLE ARE REQUESTING, BUT YOU’RE GETTING THEM ANYWAY BECAUSE WE’RE GIVING THEM TO YOU, BUT THEY FIGHT US AT EVERY TURN. THE DEMOCRATS FIGHT US AT EVERY SINGLE TURN WHETHER IT’S LAW ENFORCEMENT OR MILITARY, THEY FIGHT US AT EVERY TURN BUT WE WIN. WE CONDEMN THE VILLA FICATION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AND WE STAND WITH BORDER PATROL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT IN GENERAL. WE ALSO STRONGLY OPPOSE EFFORTS FROM POLITICIANS TO SHACKLE LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS AND PREVENT THEM FROM COOPERATING WITH THEIR FEDERAL PARTNER, SO LET’S SEE WHETHER OR NOT CHICAGO AS AN EXAMPLE LOCALLY ACCEPTS HELP. THEY NEED IT. WE’LL STRAIGHTEN IT OUT FAST. WE’RE GOING TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT FAST. I ASSUME THEY WANT TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT. SOMETIMES I THINK MAYBE IS IT POSSIBLE THEY DON’T. BUT WE’RE GOING TO BE THERE. WE’RE GOING TO TRY AND HELP THEM. EVERY DAY THESE SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES FORCE THE RELEASE OF CRIMINAL ALIENS AND GANG MEMBERS RIGHT BACK ONTO OUR STREETS. PUTTING INNOCENT CIVILIANS AT GRAVE RISK, MANY PEOPLE BEING KILLED. I WILL FIGHT EVERYDAY FOR YOUR RIGHT TO COOPERATE WITH FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AND TO PROTECT YOUR COMMUNITIES AS YOU WISH AND I KNOW MOST OF YOU IN THIS ROOM, I THINK PROBABLY EVERYBODY IN THIS ROOM WORKS BRILLIANTLY WITH OUR FEDERAL AUTHORITIES, AND IT’S OUR HONOR TO DO IT INCLUDING FUNDING BY THE WAY, INCLUDING FUNDING. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>LAST WEEK, MY ADMINISTRATION ALSO PROVIDED HISTORIC LEVELS OF FUNDING TO IMPROVE SCHOOL SAFETY THROUGH STOP SCHOOL VIOLENCE GRANTS, WE’RE GIVING LOCAL SCHOOLS AND POLICE DEPARTMENTS THE RESOURCES THEY NEED TO HIRE MORE OFFICERS AND TRAIN MORE TEACHERS AND BETTER DETECT AND ADDRESS EARLY WARNING SIGNS OF MENTAL ILLNESS BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. I MADE A LOT OF STRIDES IN THE LAST YEAR. [APPLAUSE]>>HEAVY FUNDING BUT YOU’VE MADE A LOT OF STRIDES. IN EVERY ACTION WE TAKE, WE ARE DEFENDING AMERICAN SAFETY AND TREASURY, THE EXTRAORDINARY — I MEAN WE’RE HELPING AS MANY MEN AND WOMEN WHO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITIES. HERE WITH US TODAY ARE ALL FOUR NOMINEES FOR THE IACP POLICE OFFICER OF THE YEAR AWARD. OFFICER TAYLOR RUST SERVES WITH THE PLANO, TEXAS POLICE DEPARTMENT. GOOD PLACE. [APPLAUSE]>>WHERE’S TAYLOR? TAYLOR, WHERE’S TAYLOR? COME ON UP HERE, TAYLOR. RUN UP HERE. THEY’LL LET YOU UP. COME ON UP. WE’LL GET ALL OF THEM UP. COME ON. [APPLAUSE]>>A YEAR AGO, TAYLOR RACED TO THE SCENE OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER IN A NEIGHBORHOOD, ENTERED THE HOUSE WITHOUT ANY BACKUP AT ALL, AND SHOT AND KILLED A MURDER. IT TURNED OUT TO BE SOMEONE WITH A BAD PAST, SAVING THE LIVES OF FOUR CIVILIANS. OFFICER RUST, WE SALUTE YOU AND YOUR REMARKABLE COURAGE. YOU’RE AN INCREDIBLE GENTLEMAN. STAY UP HERE WITH ME. COME ON. SAY A COUPLE OF WORDS. [APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU. YOU’LL HAVE TO FORGIVE ME. I’M MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE IN THE SITUATION, THAT THE PRESIDENT DESCRIBED THAN BEING HERE UP. IT’S A TREMENDOUS HONOR FOR ME TO BE HERE. I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING ICAP HAS DONE FOR ME, MY FAMILY AND MY WIFE AMBER IS HERE. SHE’S BEEN A TREMENDOUS SUPPORT AS WELL THROUGH THIS WHOLE THING. [APPLAUSE]>>IT HAS BEEN A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE FOR ME AND IT’S AN HONOR TO BE SPOKEN IN THE SAME BREATH AS THE OTHER OFFICERS SITTING OVER THERE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [APPLAUSE]>>THAT WAS A GOOD JOB. HE’S RUNNING FOR OFFICE SOON, YOU WATCH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. LAST MAY, OFFICER MARK DALLAS WAS ON DUTY AT DIXON HIGH SCHOOL IN ILLINOIS WHEN HE HEARD GUNSHOTS. WITHIN, LISTEN TO THIS, THREE SECONDS, HE WAS AT THE SCENE RIGHT OUTSIDE THE AUDITORIUM WHERE THE ENTIRE SENIOR CLASS WAS GATHERED AND WAS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE. THE SHOOTER FLED AND FIRED SHOTS AT HIM. BUT OFFICER DALLAS CHASED HIM DOWN BEFORE A SINGLE STUDENT WAS INJURED. OFFICER DALLAS’ SON JOSHUA — [APPLAUSE]>>– WAS ONE OF THE SENIORS INSIDE OF THAT AUDITORIUM. AFTERWARDS JOSHUA SAID, I WASN’T SCARED FOR MY LIFE AT ALL BECAUSE I KNEW MY DAD WOULD PROTECT US. HOW GOOD THAT IS THAT? [APPLAUSE]>>THANK YOU OFFICER DALLAS. WHERE ARE YOU?úCOME UP HERE. THAT’S PRETTY GOOD. [APPLAUSE]>>THAT’S PRETTY GOOD. SO HIS SON HAD A LITTLE CONFIDENCE IN HIM. THAT’S NOT BAD. THAT’S BEAUTIFUL. BEAUTIFUL STORY.>>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>PUBLIC SPEAKING IS NOT MY BEST, BUT I’M EXTREMELY NERVOUS, MR. PRESIDENT. I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING, THE SUPPORT YOU GIVE US AND I’M HONORED TO BE HERE WITH ICAP AND THE OTHER NOMINEES AND MY SON SAID HE WASN’T SCARED BECAUSE DAD WAS OUT THERE. I WAS DAD TO 128 OTHER KIDS IN THAT GYMNASIUM. [APPLAUSE]>>I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. I’M HONORED AND BLESSED TO BE HERE.>>BEAUTIFUL STORY. THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]>>THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL STORY. AND YOUR SON WAS RIGHT. IN OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR, WASHINGTON STATE TROOPER NATHANIEL DAWSON PURSUED A CAR THAT VIOLATED A TRAFFIC LAW. WHEN THE CAR STOPPED, TWO GUNMAN BEGAN SHOOTING AT TROOPER DAWSON. AND SHOOTING VERY VIOLENTLY. DESPITE HEAVY FIRE, TROOPER DAWSON GOT OUT OF HIS VEHICLE, AND FIRED BACK UNTIL THE SHOOTERS RAN AWAY AND WERE LATER APPREHENDED. THEY WERE VERY DANGEROUS CRIMINALS. OUR STREETS ARE SAFER, AND OUR CRIMINALS RECOIL IN FEAR BECAUSE OF BRAVE OFFICERS LIKE TROOPER DAWSON, AND I WANT TO THANK YOU. COME UP, PLEASE. TROOPER DAWSON. [APPLAUSE]>>WELL, IT’S A GREAT HONOR TO BE HERE TONIGHT. THANK YOU FOR ALL COMING, MR. PRESIDENT. I THINK WE ALL WOULD SAY THE SAME. WE’RE DOING OUR JOB AND TO BE RECOGNIZED IS JST EXTRA.

SERGEANT SELIS ENTERED THE BUILDING, ENGAGED IN A VICIOUS SHOOTING ATTACK AND CAPTURED THE CRIMINAL BEFORE ANYONE WAS HURT WHICH WAS INCREDIBLE, ACTUALLY. [APPLAUSE]>>SERGEANT SELLIS THAT WAS REALLY A JOB WELL DONE. PEOPLE ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. IT WAS AN AMAZING JOB. PLEASE COME UP.

    Trump moronic meglomaniacal goofball President unhinged paranoid delusional behavior lies as easily as he breaths and just as often has started a tariff sanctions war that America can't win destabilizing World Economic systems and assembled the worst cabinet in United States HISTORY more like a circus ๐ŸŽช filled only with clowns racist clowns warmongering clowns dangerous clowns.
    Everyone flips followed by indictments for Trump money laundering then impeachment proceedings and resignation.

  2. The United states of America should have a new and appealing name: The United States of Vinland or USV for short. Because Bjarni Herjolffson was the first European to discover America and Leif Erikson was the first one to step foot on it. All credit goes to the Vikings, not Christopher Columbus because he nearly wiped out the Taino Population in Hispaniola which is now known as Haiti and the Dominican Republic because he keeps looking for gold. Christopher Columbus day should be scrapped and replace it with NALF (Native American and Leif Erikson) day which is going to be from the 8th to 9th of October every year and it's for everyone no matter what nation they're from, no matter what faith they believe in, No matter what race and colour of skin they have and no matter what language they're speaking. The term american should be Vinlandic, the American nationality should be Vinlander and the Star Spangled banner should be the Vinlandic flag which consists a white cross with black around it inside the green.

  3. Stormy said Trump has a micro Penis so they had to have all these weird sex positions. I think this explains why Trump is so mean and hateful. He is lashing out.

  4. The ONLY way to reduce drug smuggling, drug related crime, in some cases drug addiction, and to bring the war on drugs to an end is to LEGALIZE ALL DRUGS. Period. End of story.

  5. Ariel Dumas, writer for the Colbert show, tweeted, "Whatever happens , I'm just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh's life." Shows where CBS stands. Traitors who are out to destroy people. SICK. Will never watch again.

  7. …it wont be hard to keep up the momentum against the radical left because we all know the left's next outrage rhetoric distraction is right around the corner. Don't you worry they were already cooking up their next fake outrage prank half way through the Brett Kavanaugh shenanigans, they harder at fabrication than anything else since they have nothing else. There is no one more intolerant than a liberal preaching tolerance. Seriously, which part of antifa is antifascist and tolerant? The part where they don't allow anyone to speak or the part where they hand out weapons before their planned protest disruption when they destroy property and physically assault people?

  8. Heโ€™s taking credit for everything Obama did. Itโ€™s like Obama had a full plate of food, ate only 80% of it. Then trump came in, ate the rest and then he boasts about how he finished the whole platter to himself.

  9. And God made it rain. There was a horrible stench in Orlando. Probably a result of the Trump Scott Bondi combination

  11. nice to have a pres who once again support's and honors our men and women in blue, before we had a thing and a fake AG that disrespected the very people who puts their lives on the line everyday to protect the general public .

  12. Assumption of innocence>safety or we are NOT America anymore. Let alone "great". It's an argument now on "what made/makes us great". Before, the issue was "how", now it's a discussion as to our nature.
    Stop and frisk=random checks=more profiling, more unfair "not out in the open but now out in the open" case, but that isn't America. So before bygone-age-conservatives clap, be aware that it's change happening…slippery slope kind of change.

  13. great man. democrats want an open border, no ICE, no rule of law and damaged law enforcement. republicans are the law and order party.

  14. AMERICANS NO REST WE MUST DEFEAT THE DEMOCRATS AND KEEP DEFEATING THEM UNTIL THEY DISSOLVE. THE DEMOCRATS ARE ANTI EVERYTHING DECENT AND GOOD!

  15. I hope you strange people out there find your selves dead! Haha including so called president Trump who sits there hand in hand with so called north korean so called leader kim fake un and talks garbage all day long to lock your minds up in their revengeful things!
