Trump says he’d give police permission to ‘go and counter-attack’
Trump says police need to be “tougher.”
Ask Donald Trump, and he’ll tell you it’s police who are oppressed — and the solution is to give them permission “to go and counter-attack.”
In an interview with Bill O’Reilly Monday night, the Republican presidential nominee repeatedly claimed that electing him president would restore order and civility to city streets practically overnight. But when pressed by a friendly interviewer for specific plans, Trump had only one.
“Your tone is pro-police. How do you stop the bad guys from attacking them?” O’Reilly asked.
“By giving them back your spirit and by allowing them to go and counter-attack,” Trump said.
