POLICE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Making America Great Again has always been about defending the rule of law, supporting the men and women of law enforcement and upholding our nation’s most sacred traditions and values. Mob violence goes against everything I believe in and everything our movement stands for.
No true supporter of mine could ever endorse political violence. No true supporter of mine could ever disrespect law enforcement or our great American flag. No true supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans.
If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement, you are attacking it and you are attacking our country. We can not tolerate it.”
-Donald Trump via The White House, “A Message from President Donald J. Trump,” YouTube.com, Jan. 13, 2021
