Trump Tells Fraternal Order Of Police

Trump Tells Fraternal Order Of Policeā€

President Donald Trump, who often has hammered Chicago for its violence, is meeting Tuesday with police union officials including Dean Angelo Sr., the president of the union for Chicago's rank-and-file officers.

There were more than 760 homicides in Chicago last year, the most in 20 years.

President Donald Trump is proposing immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs like medical research, infrastructure and community grants so USA taxpayers, not Mexico, can cover the down payment on the border wall.

The president pointed to the example of Chicago, where almost 700 people have been shot so far this year.

Trump said he was "removing criminals all over the country". "Almost 700 more have already been shot since January of this year alone", Trump said.

In addition to gun violence, union leaders talked with Trump about the opioid crisis and sanctuary cities, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Its Chicago affiliate says it has 8,202 members.

"He made commitments to us that he would support law enforcement if he was elected, and keep our views in mind as he undertook to uphold the threshold responsibility of a president, which is to protect public safety", Pasco said at the time.

The President reaffirmed that "we will always support the incredible and women of law enforcement".

"I will always have your back 100 percent like you've always had mine and you showed that on November 8th". Angelo said the consent decree was not discussed during the meeting, but other issues were including standards for hiring and retaining officers, and reporting requirements that the union said has led to a decline in traffic stops. "Find out who they are, please, and let us know".

The FOP represents a number of big city police departments, and Angelo said during the meeting the national FOP president expressed concerns with the Trump administration's pledge to cut federal funding for sanctuary cities, including Chicago.
