If the MSM and liberal celebrities would take a second to relax rather than hammer President Trump for every little thing, they might begin to realize he’s been doing a number of good things for the country.
For example, today Trump is helping police officers.
45’s administration has just lifted a ban on sending some military equipment to cops.
From Washington Examiner:
The Trump administration is set to restart a program that allows the flow of certain types of surplus military equipment and weapons to state and local law enforcement.
The so-called militarization of police, which is made possible by the Department of Defense’s 1033 program, was scaled back by former President Barack Obama in 2015 after the Ferguson, Mo., riots in August 2014 became a major controversy.
The Obama order still allowed the transfer of equipment such as tactical vehicles, non-lethal weapon launchers and riot gear if the state and local police departments were able to prove a need. But armored vehicles, bayonets, grenade launchers and large-caliber weapons and ammunition were barred from transfer.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to announce the new policy at a speech to the Fraternal Order of Police in Nashville on Monday morning, according to documents obtained by the Washington Examiner.
The Washington Examiner has also learned that President Trump will sign an executive order rescinding the Obama policy later on Monday, and it will go into effect immediately. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Of course the Obama administration scaled it back after Ferguson. Cops are the bad guys. They don’t deserve as much protection as possible!
Law enforcement needs our utmost support during these crazy times.
Have you seen the nonsense that occurred in Berkeley, CA this past weekend? I’m sure some military gear would’ve come in handy.
