The choice this November couldn't be any clearer.
The Democrats want to defund the police and in some cases ABOLISH the police.
President Trump wants to provide law and order that protects ALL Americans.
Anyone who loves America, their neighbor, and their own safety has one leader who truly stands for them: President Trump.
During a live roundtrable, President Trump made a stunning revelation: he has a multi-step program that would improve policing without defunding a single law enforcement agency.
Trump held a roundtable with black leaders, but CNN and MSNBC refused to cover it.
For those interested, the full hour and a half roundtable where Trump discussed policing, race relations, and the economy can be viewed here:
The media and far left radicals have mocked Trump for "hiding in a bunker."
The reality, however, is that President Trump is confronting these difficulties head-on.
Instead of covering the roundtable, it appeared that mainstream news outlets were focused on criticizing the president rather than airing his strong leadership.
The Hill confirms that an Executive Order is around the corner:
President Trump said Thursday that his administration is working on an executive order that will encourage police to meet "professional standards" for the use of force in the line of duty.
“We’re working to finalize an executive order that will encourage police departments nationwide to meet the most current professional standards for the use of force, including tactics for de-escalation,” Trump said during a roundtable with law enforcement, faith leaders and small business owners in Dallas.
Trump said the order would encourage police to use “force with compassion.” He also defended his call for law enforcement to "dominate the streets" in order to quell protests after the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was killed in police custody on May 25. Protests nationwide have been largely peaceful, with some incidents of looting in larger cities.
“And that means force, but force with compassion. But if you’re going to have to really do a job, if somebody’s really bad, you’re going to have to do it with real strength, real power,” Trump said.
“I said we have to dominate the streets,” he continued. “And I was criticized for that statement. … Well, guess what, you know who dominated the streets? People who you don’t want to dominate the streets."
The White House previously signaled Trump was considering an executive order to address police reform, while lawmakers from both parties are working on legislation to address the issue. Democrats released their reform bill on Monday, and Republicans plan to unveil their own next week.
Trump used his remarks to express broad support for law enforcement. He said it was important to have “law and order” in America — a refrain that has he has used often over the past several days — and said it was important to invest more energy and resources into training and recruiting police. Trump said there would always be “bad apples” in police forces but described them as rare.
“We have to work together to confront bigotry and prejudice wherever they appear,” Trump said. “But we’ll make no progress and heal no wounds by falsely labeling tens of millions of decent Americans as racists or bigots. We have to get everybody together. We have to be in the same path. If we don’t do that, we’ll have problems.”
Trump also targeted those supporting efforts to “defund the police,” a movement that has grown amid protests over Floyd’s death. Left-leaning activists and some progressive lawmakers have called for some funds to be redirected from police departments to social programs.
President Trump has been consistent on his position of law and order.
Long before the riots, lawlessness, and looting, Trump stood for compassionate law enforcement that protects ALL American people.
The plan that Trump revealed at the roundtable has 4 distinct points.
Trump proved that two things can be true at once.
First, we need reform to help minimize a tragedy like this happening again.
Second, rioting and looting cannot be condoned.
NPR reports on the 4 pillars of Trump's plan:
President Trump on Thursday met with pastors, law enforcement officials and small-business owners at a church in Dallas to discuss plans to "build safety, opportunity and dignity," following recent nationwide protests against police brutality.
"It's going to end up very good for everybody," Trump said.
The new model calls for: increasing access to capital for small business owners in minority communities; confronting racial disparities in health care; an executive order to encourage police departments to meet professional standards for use of force and de-escalation tactics, as well as a pilot program for social workers to work with police departments; and a push for Congress to enact school choice – a longstanding policy of his administration.
Trump's remarks, a response to recent protests and calls for racial justice sparked by the May 25 killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, did not mention Floyd by name. But, he continued to speak harshly of the protesters who have demonstrated in large numbers across the country in response to the killing and lavished praise on police and law enforcement.
Attorney General William Barr, who has also taken a hard line against protesters, also attended the event.
The administration's four-point plan, which a White House official described as a move towards "holistic revitalization and recovery," comes as demonstrators and officials across the country have called for additional visibility to the social and economic hardships faced by many racial minorities in the country.
What else was announced?

He will be able to champion compassionate policing without the media twisting his words.
