Trump issues executive order protecting police with stern warning for criminals: ‘Your day is over’

President Donald Trump drew the ire of progressives when he signed three executive orders to protect police officers and punish criminals.

The president pledged to enforce laws on the books and to create tougher penalties for “crimes of violence” against police Thursday after the swearing-in of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“I am directing the Department of Justice to reduce crimes and crimes of violence against law enforcement officers,” the president said. “It’s a shame, what has been happening to our great, our truly great, law enforcement officers. That is going to stop as of today.”

Attorney General Sessions will “review existing federal laws to determine whether those laws are adequate to address [officers’] protection and safety,” according to the one of the orders.  “Following] that review, [Sessions will] make recommendations to the president … including, if warranted, legislation defining new crimes of violence and establishing new mandatory minimum sentences for existing crimes.”

With his new attorney general behind him President Trump said the first order will “break the back of criminal cartels.” The second order creates a DOJ task force to reduce crimes of violence. And the third order was directed to prevent violent crimes against police.

President Trump said the swearing-in of Sessions and signing of the orders was a “clear message to the gang members, drug dealers terrorizing innocent people.”

“Your day is over,” the president said. “A new era of justice begins and it begins right now.”

Detroit Police Chief James Craig praised the president’s decisions when he spoke to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto.

“This is about creating safe cities, safe communities and neighborhoods,” he said. “I’m excited with the change. I think it’s well overdue.”

Chief Craig believes that the support for law enforcement from the president will help reduce crime as it increases morale among police.

“What we’ve seen in so many cities – and I can name a few – [is] that when the morale goes down, and police officers don’t feel supported, certainly violent crime is not being adequately addressed. I’ve seen it in too many places,” he said.

As the president received praise from the chief, liberals on social media went ballastic at the idea of enforcing laws and supporting police.

It’ as if they believe the people shot by police were doing nothing and police drove by and shot them for no reason.

Black History Month? Are they suggesting that enforcing the law is somehow racist against black people?

Yes. Yes they are.

It is supposed to be scary … to criminals.
