Trump-Elections: The Police Candidate

His uncertain electoral future leads Donald Trump to dive in low-key rhetoric.

His outbursts focus on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Andrés Correa, a journalist for El Diario Nueva York, revealed this Sunday a warning from the president to hundreds of officers from the New York police force:

“This guy has been taking away your dignity and your respect. And I tell you that on November 3rd you will get it back ”.

"No one will be safe in Biden's country."

The event was organized at his luxurious golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

There Trump received electoral support from the New York City Police Benevolent Association, the union that represents nearly 24,000 officers from that law enforcement body and thousands of its retirees.
As it’s known, both have tense relations with the Democratic mayor of that city, Bill de Blasio.

Patrick Lynch, its president, confessed that he could not remember a moment in 36 years where the union would have endorsed a presidential candidate as it has done now.

Correa points out that what happened was criticized by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who commented ironically:

“That union supported Trump. I'm sure this is part of their neighborhood outreach plan ”.

And she wrote on Twitter: Also, does anyone else see a potential problem with police unions - enforcement arms of the state with lethal weapons - promoting “preferred” candidates for office or is that just me?

The aforementioned journalist pointed out that Trump took advantage of the occasion to intensify his attacks against Biden and Kamala Harris.

The president dared to say that Kamala and Biden were at the center of "a left war against the police."

According to the summary of the Fox News network, "the Trump campaign seeks to raise doubts about the ability of Biden-Harris to keep peace in the largest cities in the country."

The New York newspaper recalls that after the violent protests over the killing of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, the president said that cities with Democratic mayors have become "a hell for violence and impunity."

What you imagined, Trump is the favorite candidate of the police.
