After speaking to police cadets at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, Long Island, Friday about the violent MS-13 gang, President Trump sent out a Twitter post Friday evening, confirming his commitment to clean up the streets and protect American communities.
The president was condemned by the left for his comment that the MS-13 criminals shouldn’t be handled gently when being apprehended by law enforcement. The Suffolk County Police Department also responded, saying they “would not tolerate the roughing up of prisoners.”
“We will defend our country, protect our communities and put the safety of the AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST!” President Trump tweeted.
He included a video clip of his introduction at Friday’s event.
