Trump blasts Democrat-run cities for disrespecting police

July 13, 2020 | 9:18am

President Trump on Monday blasted “Radical Left politicians” in American cities for allowing crime to run rampant and for failing to stand up for their police officers.

“Never in history have Police been treated so badly as they are in Democrat run cities – and these cities are a mess,” the president said in a Twitter post. “Police must take a stronger stand with the Radical Left politicians that are treating them so badly, and so disrespectfully!!!”

Trump has declared himself the “law and order president” after protests broke out across the country over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis that was for a period of time punctuated with looting and attacks on police.

The tweet is a continuation of the theme he pressed earlier this month during a speech at Mount Rushmore, in which he decried the “left-wing cultural revolution” for allowing “violent mayhem” to occur in American streets.

“They want to silence us. But we will not be silenced,” Trump said as the crowd cheered: “USA! USA!”

“We will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen!” he said.

Trump’s tweet comes following a weekend of violence in New York where 15 people were shot since midday Saturday, including a 1-year-old who was fatally shot Sunday night in Brooklyn.
