A few changes were made to the official White House website on the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, including adding a “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community” page under the “Issues” section.
The page, as expected, discusses the growing disrespect for police officers, violent crime, and keeping our communities safe. It even addresses non-peaceful protesting, which has made national headlines for disruption and violence.
Trump also made sure to mention his administration’s commitment to upholding Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
It reads, in part:
One of the fundamental rights of every American is to live in a safe community. A Trump Administration will empower our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and keep our streets free of crime and violence. The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration. President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the public. The dangerous anti-police atmosphere in America is wrong. The Trump Administration will end it.
Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, or the violent disrupter.
Supporting law enforcement means supporting our citizens’ ability to protect themselves. We will uphold Americans’ Second Amendment rights at every level of our judicial system.
