Donald Trump: Forgotten America's Law and Order Candidate

Over the past two weeks Donald Trump has offered compelling visions of two key issues in the presidential Donald Trumpcampaign; economic growth and winning the war Islam has declared on the West. Last night Trump defined a third leg of his campaign against Hillary Clinton, and it is one we have been urging for months; law and order. 

As is his habit, Trump was direct and unhesitant to lay blame for the current unrest squarely where it belongs – in the lap of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and their Far Left allies.

The narrative that has been pushed aggressively for years now by our current Administration, and pushed by my opponent Hillary Clinton, is a false one. The problem in our poorest communities is not that there are too many police, the problem is that there are not enough police. 

More law enforcement, more community engagement, more effective policing is what our country needs.

Just like Hillary Clinton is against the miners, she is against the police. You know it, and I know it.  

But Trump went further than any Republican we can think of in recognizing who actually suffers from these policies; the poor people Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and their Far Left allies claim to represent:

Law and order must be restored. It must be restored for the sake of all, but most especially the sake of those living in the affected communities. 

The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods. It is their jobs, their homes, their schools and communities which will suffer as a result. 

There is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct. Crime and violence is an attack on the poor, and will never be accepted in a Trump Administration. 

The truth of Trump’s analysis is even recognized by the rioters. 

Although CNN edited it out, Sherelle Smith, the sister of a black man who was killed by police in Milwaukee on Saturday, was quite clear in calling for rioters to take their violence “to the suburbs.”  

“Stop burning down sh-t we need in our community,” Ms. Smith said in her extended remarks. “Take that sh-t to the suburbs. Burn they sh-t down. We need our sh-t. We need our weaves. I don’t wear it. But we need it.” 

Interestingly, Donald Trump defined the “war” we are fighting for the quality of life of our inner city citizen in much the same terms as he defined the domestic war we are fighting against radical Islam after the Pulse night club terror attack in Orlando, Florida.

The war on our police is a war on all peaceful citizens who want to be able to work and live and send their kids to school in safety. 

Our job is not to make life more comfortable for the rioter, the looter, the violent disruptor. Our job is to make life more comfortable for the African-American parent who wants their kids to be able to safely walk the streets. Or the senior citizen waiting for a bus. Or the young child walking home from school. 

For every one violent protestor, there are a hundred moms and dads and kids on that same city block who just want to be able to sleep safely at night. My opponent would rather protect the offender than the victim. 

Hillary Clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today, and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime, and lost opportunities. 

I care too much about my country to let that happen. 

The notion that the job of government is to ensure “domestic tranquility” and the peaceful enjoyment of their lives by its citizens is so alien to Democrats and establishment Republicans, who have turned the federal government into an evil caricature of Santa Claus, that they will undoubtedly fail to recognize that it is straight from the Preamble to the Constitution and was one of the chief responsibilities the Framers sought for the new Federal government. 

In his speech last night Trump once again put himself on the side of forgotten Americans, this time not in the Rust Belt, but in America’s inner cities. It remains to be seen if Trump’s message will punch through the media filter and the plantation culture of inner city politics, but to those inner city residents who hear it, the working parents, business owners, church leaders and retirees, it will be a long overdue promise of liberation from the Hell to which generations of Democratic misrule has consigned them.

Trump's Milwaukee Message

WOW! Thank God Trump has turned off his "a__hole" switch and turned on his "statesman' switch. Let's hope it stays that way. Now I can actually vote for him enthusiastically!

One question (I hope Trump, his new campaign managers, and Ben Carson are reading this): Why isn't Ben Carson actively campaigning for Trump in the black ghettos, where his skin color and his background would make him a more acceptable and effective messenger? (Sorry Ben, but you know as well as I that black racism is still alive and well in our inner cities.)
