Trump senses the mood of the country, firmly positions himself as the ‘law and order’ candidate

In a Monday speech on veterans issues in Virginia Beach, Virginia, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump reacted to the police shootings in Dallas by sharply positioning himself as THE law and order candidate.

And why not? With Hillary Clinton firmly in the camp of the IMMUNE to law and order, there’s a demographic there for the taking.

Since the Democrats have pretty much got the BLM vote nailed down, going after the “silent majority” is definitely a good move for Trump.

Speaking of the thousands of shooting victims, “brutal drug cartels” and rampant violence in America’s inner cities, Trump said, “Our inner cities have been left totally behind, and I’m going to fight to make sure every citizen of this country has a safe home, a safe school, and a safe community.”

“We must maintain law and order at the highest level, or we will cease to have a country. 100%, we will cease to have a country,” Trump said in his speech. “I am the law and order candidate. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is weak, ineffective, pandering, and as proven by her recent e-mail scandal, which was an embarrassment, not only to her, but to the entire nation as a whole, she’s either a liar or grossly incompetent. One or the other. Very simple. Personally, it’s probably both.”

Trump continued, “Not only am I the law and order candidate, but I’m also the candidate of compassion … but you can’t have true compassion without providing safety for the citizens of our country. Every kid in America should be able to securely walk the streets in their own neighborhood without harm. Everyone will be protected equally and treated justly without prejudice. We will be tough. We will be smart. We will be fair, and we will protect all Americans.”

“It’s the job of the next President to make America safe again for everyone… everyone,” Trump said.
