For eight years, Barack Obama constantly criticized law enforcement agencies at the federal, state and local levels. In many cases, Obama supported criminals and condemned law enforcement officers for doing their jobs.
In Ferguson, Missouri, Obama took the side of Michael Brown and condemned police officer Darren Wilson, even after it was proven that Brown was guilty of robbery, assault, failing to comply with a police officer, resisting arrest and attempted murder of a police officer.
After 11 months with Donald Trump in the White House, police officers nationwide are happy with the support they are receiving from the White House.
(Fox News) – As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump praised the virtues and sacrifice of law enforcement officers in his many campaign speeches. To beleaguered cops, the president’s inauguration signaled the welcome end of eight years of unwarranted criticism from the Obama administration.
In the President Trump’s Joint Address to Congress, he cautioned against the path followed by President Obama. The new president said that Americans “must work with, not against – not against – the men and women of law enforcement. We must build bridges of cooperation and trust – not drive the wedge of disunity.”
President Trump added: “Police and sheriffs are members of our community. They’re friends and neighbors, they’re mothers and fathers, sons and daughters – and they leave behind loved ones every day who worry about whether or not they’ll come home safe and sound. We must support the incredible men and women of law enforcement.” I couldn’t agree more…
Family and friends of mine in law enforcement, kept telling me that they felt that Obama was waging a war against law enforcement and encouraging the growing anarchy and violence against police that took the lives a number of officers. One officer I knew told me that if Obama ever travelled to his jurisdiction, he would not take a bullet to protect him. He says he would gladly do so for President Donald Trump.
