Washington Times covered Trump’s rally in Henderson Nevada and had these details to report:
President Trump late Sunday said the “gloves are off” as he derided Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden as unfit for the presidency, too soft on anti-police protesters and inconsistent on fracking and other issues.
“He would surrender your country to the mob, you know that,” he said at Xtreme Manufacturing in Henderson, Nevada. “I’ll always stand with the heroes of law enforcement.”
He said flag-burners should go to jail for one year and that cop-killers should receive the ultimate punishment as authorities search for the assailant who ambushed two Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies. The officers remain hospitalized.
“If you murder a police officer, you should receive the death penalty,” Mr. Trump told cheering supporters.
If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this! https://t.co/K3sKh28GjX

The Daily Mail reported his speech in Henderson and had this to say:
He painted his rival as an ally of those who attack law enforcement.
‘Biden’s anti-police crusade must stop,’ he said.
‘For the entire summer Biden was quiet as his left wing supporters assaulted police officers,’ he said, adding a complaint that Biden didn’t say ‘law and order’ once during his political convention.
Trump has been portraying himself as the law and order president and has challenged Biden to say those words.
The president began his speech with words of prayer for two California deputies who were shot in an ambush while they were in their vehicle on Saturday night.
And he repeated his vow their attacker should receive the death penalty if they die.
‘If you murder a police officer, you should receive the death penalty,’ he said.
He called the person who shot two Los Angeles deputies as an ‘animal.’
‘He’s an animal. I was criticized by people for calling him an animal, he’s a human being. He’s not a human being,’ Trump said.

Should police killers receive the death penalty?
