Trump: Biden Calls Police The Enemy, They Are Our Friend

President Trump said Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden views the police “as the enemy” at a press conference on Wednesday in the White House briefing room.

“The anti-police crusade from the Democrats and the radical left and radical-left Democrats also has to stop,” Trump said. “The left-wing war on cops puts our officers in danger and our communities a very grave risk. Can’t do this. Biden described the police as the enemy. They’re not the enemy. They’re the friend. They’re our friend. They’re helping us. And if you go to–I just saw a poll just came out our recently came out where African Americans by 84 percent wanted more police. They wanted safe neighborhoods.”

TRUMP: I created the greatest and fairest economy in history. The biggest gains went to lower-income Americans as they measure that kind of thing. We will be back to full strength very soon. We’re going to have a fantastic year next year. It’s looking like that. I think you’re going to have an incredible third quarter.

The numbers are looking very, very strong for the third quarter. We have numbers that we’re going to put out tomorrow, some of the individual things, and the car production, housing production, housing ownership. So many different things are–are just at levels that nobody thought possible as we round the turn on the pandemic.

The anti-police crusade from the Democrats and the radical left and radical-left Democrats also has to stop. The left-wing war on cops puts our officers in danger and our communities a very grave risk. Can’t do this. Biden described the police as the enemy. They’re not the enemy. They’re the friend. They’re our friend. They’re helping us. And if you go to–I just saw a poll just came out our recently came out where African Americans by 84 percent wanted more police. They wanted safe neighborhoods.

In Phoenix last night, a federal officer was gunned down in a drive-by shooting. In L.A. this weekend, everybody saw that, this horrible human being or whatever you might want to call him–I think him. They’re looking all over. They’re trying to find him. We’re going to find out–we’re going to get him.

But in LA this weekend, two sheriff’s deputies were ambushed and viciously shot. And they can never be the same. They’re getting better but they can never be the same. I’ll always stand by our heroes of law enforcement. And we want to stop this horrible rhetoric and stop it fast.
