In a speech before law enforcement, President Donald Trump said that America sees police as “role models” and blamed “dishonest media” for distorting the view of law enforcement in America.
According to USA Today, Trump made the remarks Wednesday at the Major Cities Chiefs Association Winter Conference in Washington.
“You’re the role models to young Americans all across this country, many of whom want to go into law enforcement, many of whom want to be a sheriff or a police chief, many of whom — they have great respect for you,” Trump said, according to The Hill. “Tremendous respect.”
“You don’t even realize it, but I will tell you, they have great respect and admiration for the people in this room and the people that you represent. And don’t let anyone ever tell you different,” he continued.
“Don’t let the dishonest media try and convince you that it’s different than that,” he added to applause from the attendees, “because it’s not.”
“I want you to know the American public totally stands with you. I want you to know the American people support you. I want you to know how proud we are, truly proud, to know you,” Trump said.
“We applaud your efforts. We thank you for your service. And we promise that you will always find an open door at the White House — an open invitation to our great cops and sheriffs nationwide. They’re great people. You are great people.”

Now, ask yourself this question: Could you ever see Barack Obama echoing such sentiments?
No, of course not. In fact, the former president was about as antagonistic towards police officers as he could get away with being. He certainly never corrected the media about the misconception that they developed about law enforcement.
There’s a new sheriff in town, and police couldn’t be happier.
