The New York City Police Benevolent Association — a union that represents 24,000 NYPD officers, endorsed President Trump as NYC descends into lawlessness, thanks to Democrats’ catastrophic “Defund the Police” movement.
Pat Lynch is the president of the NYC PBA. He has been in law enforcement for 36 years and has been the NYPD union boss for 21 years.
Lynch said this is the first time during his career that the union has ever endorsed a presidential candidate.
“I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the President of the United States until now. That’s how important this is,” Lynch said at Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. “We need your strong voice across the country.”
After staying neutral during the 2016 election, Lynch said the union could no longer sit on the sidelines after NYC’s Democrat mayor, Bill de Blasio, “launched a crusade against the police.”
In contrast, Lynch said President Trump “earned the endorsement” with his unwavering support of law enforcement, who are trying to keep the public safe from the lawless thugs that Democrats have empowered with their reckless demonization of police.
Lynch also praised the President for not canceling their meeting despite a family emergency.
Trump was in New York City before the NYPD event to visit his 71-year-old brother, Robert Trump, who was hospitalized with an unknown illness. (Update: Robert Trump has died.)
In accepting the NYC Police Benevolent Association’s endorsement, President Trump warned: “No one will be safe in Biden’s America.”
Trump added: “Our country is suffering from a radical far-left movement…that is trying to defame, demoralize, defund, dismantle and dissolve our great police departments. It’s a left-wing war on cops. If Sleepy Joe Biden were to become president, he would immediately pass legislation to gut every single police department in America.”
The President continued: “Joe Biden’s police strategy will be modeled on the Bill de Blasio catastrophe. No one will be safe in Biden’s America.”
Across the United States, Democrat-controlled cities have spiraled into anarchy and lawlessness, thanks to the Left’s anti-police rhetoric, which is being fueled by the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement.
The race riots are based on a lie — gleefully fomented by the left-wing media — that white cops are hunting down black men.
This false narrative is being bleated around the clock, even though statistics contradict this anti-white, anti-police trope.
For every 10,000 black people arrested for violent crime, 3 are killed
For every 10,000 white people arrested for violent crime, 4 are killed
I'm going to keep tweeting this until someone can explain to me how this is possible if there is truly pervasive racial bias in policing

Percentage of people killed by police officers annually:
Can anyone provide me the name of even ONE hispanic or white person that was killed by a police officer this year?

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the Left is stoking resentment among black people to ignite a race war. Why? It has nothing to do with helping blacks and everything to do with removing President Trump by any means necessary.
“What they are seeking is total control of the country. None of this has anything to do with George Floyd,” Carlson said. “With every night of rioting, they grow bolder. They would like to eliminate all law enforcement for good.”
Recent polls show that police departments are one of the most trusted institutions in the country. Most police departments support Trump. And that’s why the Left wants to “Defund the Police.”
After taking over the media, academia, Big Tech, and Hollywood, power-hungry leftists now want police departments under their thumb.
“Most African-Americans still support the police,” Tucker said. “A 2016 Pew poll found that 55% of African-Americans had confidence in the police within their own communities.”
Carlson continued: “A study by the Bureau of Justice Statistics from 2011 found that among those who called the police for help, more than 90% of African-Americans felt the police behaved properly.”
Tucker added: “What would happen if we got rid of the police? Things would fall apart instantly. In the absence of law enforcement, it means thugs are in charge. They can do whatever they want to you. The mob literally rules.”
Carlson continued: “That probably sounds like a nightmare to you, because it is. But the people pushing this idea don’t see it as scary because they don’t fear the mob. Because they control the mob. And they see violence as an instrument of their political power. With mobs in the streets that they control, they will finally get what they want — Donald Trump out of office and a hammerlock on the country. That’s what’s happening.”
