During Donald Trump’s speech at the FBI Academy graduation ceremony, he bashed former President Barack Obama while calling for militarized police forces. He told the crowd, “The president of the United States has your back 100 percent,” just after bashing the FBI to reporters earlier while on the White House lawn.
“Just as I promised, we are allowing our local police to access surplus military equipment,” Trump said, “something the previous administration for some reason refused to do. Explain that one. Explain it to me, please. Never understood that one. Somebody out there can explain it. Anybody want to stand up and explain it?”
Trump also called for the execution of anyone who kills a police officer even though the death penalty is not legal in many states.
