In the wake of the tragic and coordinated attack on law enforcement in Dallas, Texas, where five officers were killed and six more shot by snipers that preached Black Lives Matter, Donald Trump took to social media to express himself.
In fine form, he laid out exactly what the issue is, and how to fix it. It’s not more political correctness – it’s by identifying the root cause of the issue and getting rid of it for good. We don’t need more bloodshed on the streets, and we don’t need more dead citizens, police or not. Obama isn’t helping, but actively making things worse by meeting with Black Lives Matter, which should be classified as a terrorist group at this point.
Here’s what Trump said on Facebook:
LAST NIGHT’S HORRIFIC EXECUTION-STYLE SHOOTINGS OF 12 DALLAS LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS – FIVE OF WHOM WERE KILLED AND SEVEN WOUNDED- IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY. IT IS A COORDINATED, PREMEDITATED ASSAULT ON THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO KEEP US SAFE.
WE MUST RESTORE LAW AND ORDER. WE MUST RESTORE THE CONFIDENCE OF OUR PEOPLE TO BE SAFE AND SECURE IN THEIR HOMES AND ON THE STREET.
THE SENSELESS, TRAGIC DEATHS OF TWO MOTORISTS IN LOUISIANA AND MINNESOTA REMINDS US HOW MUCH MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE.
THIS MORNING I OFFER MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS FOR ALL OF THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES, AND WE PRAY FOR OUR BRAVE POLICE OFFICERS AND FIRST RESPONDERS WHO RISK THEIR LIVES TO PROTECT US EVERY SINGLE DAY.
OUR NATION HAS BECOME TOO DIVIDED. TOO MANY AMERICANS FEEL LIKE THEY’VE LOST HOPE. CRIME IS HARMING TOO MANY CITIZENS. RACIAL TENSIONS HAVE GOTTEN WORSE, NOT BETTER. THIS ISN’T THE AMERICAN DREAM WE ALL WANT FOR OUR CHILDREN.
THIS IS A TIME, PERHAPS MORE THAN EVER, FOR STRONG LEADERSHIP, LOVE AND COMPASSION. WE WILL PULL THROUGH THESE TRAGEDIES.
I couldn’t agree more. We need to solve these problems with a level-headed approach and we can’t give in to impulse and emotional irrationality. We need to make the country great again, because the current President is doing all he can to destroy the nation from within. We are stronger than this.
