Donald Trump made another decree that is certain to ruffle some liberal feathers.
Speaking before the New England Police Benevolent Association in Milford, New Hampshire on Wednesday, the Republican presidential front-runner decreed a Trump administration would issue an executive order to give all cop killers the death penalty.
“They’ve had a hard time, police forces throughout the country have had a hard time. A lot of people killed,” he said.
“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order if I win would be to sign a strong, strong statement that will go out to the country, out to the world, that anybody killing a policeman, policewoman, police officer, anybody killing a police officer — death penalty. It’s gonna happen. OK? We can’t let this go,” Trump said to applause.
The police union subsequently gave its endorsement for president to the real estate mogul.

Trump received a lot of support on social media for his idea.
#Trump says death penalty to cop killers. We DO NEED fiercer punishment for 100% guilty killers, not lifetime support in prison.
