Trump Promises Cops He’ll Give Them Military Weapons If Elected

Sputnik

On Monday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Ohio police that, if elected, he would give them military weapons. He also told black and Latino voters that since they live in “war zones” they could only be safe by voting for him.

Trump met with the Akron chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, a union that has not yet endorsed a presidential candidate. He reportedly vowed to be “a cheerleader” for police if elected president, and said he would supply them with military weapons currently unavailable to them.

After protests surrounding police violence in Ferguson, Missouri, last year, President Barack Obama banned battlefield equipment, including grenade launchers, high-caliber weapons and tracked armored vehicles. Trump said it was “ridiculous” that police didn’t have access to combat resources.

Addressing non-white voters at a small rally hours later, the controversial billionaire said, “You could go to war zones in countries that we’re fighting and it’s safer than living in some of our inner cities that are run by the Democrats,” repeating an appeal he made to black voters last week, “What do you have to lose?”

Trump made promises, including, “I’ll straighten it out.” He also declared, “I’ll bring jobs back, We’ll bring spirit back. I’ll get rid of the crime, so you’ll be able to walk down the street without getting shot. Right now, you walk down the street, you get shot.”

The beleaguered Republican candidate then claimed that murders are “up all over the place no matter where you look”, even though FBI crime statistics show that homicides dropped to a 41-year low in 2014.

Trump’s recent overtures to non-white voters are the result of extremely low polling numbers, with one poll showing him earning only 1% support from African Americans. Despite this, the reality television star boasted last week that he would “get over 95% of the African-American vote” by 2020, a claim that made even his running mate, Indiana governor Mike Pence, laugh.

  1. Yeah , you walk down the streets and get shot .. By the police

    Now you’ll be able to walk down the street and get shot by the police with automatic military grade weaponry

    Someone stop this globe , I want off and away from all this political stupidity

    Ok trump
    If they can have it , so can we
    It has to be a level playing field or it’s going to end up anarchy

  2. The trumpet blowers still wont believe this. To them, their messiah can do no wrong and if you point out the facts, they’ll just call you a hillary supporter or a lib.

  3. Trump obviously wants to become the new Hitler or Stalin. We’re watching history repeat itself.

    Not that Clinton is any better. She’s merely more subtle in her evil.

    As for the pigs, can’t they already get just about any weapons they want, budget permitting? I can’t imagine that the bigger departments, like the NYPD and LAPD, are unable to get ANYTHING they order. Their breachers can get C4, for crying out loud. How much more “military” can they get? Apache helicopters? Jet fighters?

    Regardless of what the pigs have now or what they get later, it will all be up for grabs when the SHTF. Unfortunately, not all of it will fall into the hands of good people.

    1. My first thought also, BMF.
      I hope they get all the best gear, because it will very soon become OUR best gear.

      ’nuff said.

    2. Totally disagree the Hildebeast is more subtle in her pure evil. The sickness, criminality and vile evil literally drips from her pores.

      As I cannot stand the fake libertarian, Gary Johnson, looks the Constitution party candidate, Darrell Castle, for me if I bother to vote at all.

  4. No worry he will never see that oval office, how many time do I have to say this. Killory wont either. I promise.

  5. “Trump said it was “ridiculous” that police didn’t have access to combat resources.”

    After all, they’re only “here to help”.

    “Trump made promises, including, “I’ll straighten it out.” He also declared, “I’ll bring jobs back, We’ll bring spirit back. I’ll get rid of the crime, so you’ll be able to walk down the street without getting shot.”

    Carnival barker extraordinaire.

    Sheeple are SO gullible.

    1. The arch evil running was Rafael Cruz. You have a choice, Trump or Hillary. Choose wisely as the Supreme Court is on the line. Trump isn’t going to do half of what he says and Hillary will do more.

      1. “You have a choice, Trump or Hillary. Choose wisely as the Supreme Court is on the line.”

        Please tell me you’re joking.

  6. Tramp, sorry Trump, is trying to get their votes. They already have the weapons, I guess Trump is so out of touch, he is not sure of anything. BTW: Trump has gone 180 on just about everything.
