“In recent weeks, a radical left-wing movement has begun to stop funding and disband police departments. Politicians of extreme views have joined this crusade against the police,” Trump said, speaking at the White House.
According to him, such actions have led to a sharp increase in homicides, gunshot wounds, and other violence.
“This bloodshed must end, and it will end. Today, I am announcing a sharp increase in the number of Federal law enforcement officers in our municipalities involved in violent crimes,” the President said, promising to bring those responsible for such crimes to justice.
“We have no choice but to intervene (in the situation),” Trump concluded.
