Monday, during a speech in Virginia Beach, VA, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he was “the law and order candidate.”
Trump said, “I’m going to fight to make sure every citizen of this country has a safe home, a safe school, and a safe community. We must maintain law and order, at the highest level, or we will cease to have a country, 100 percent. We will cease to have a country. I am the law and order candidate.”
He continued, “Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is weak, ineffective, pandering, and, as proven by her recent email scandal, which was an embarrassment, not only to her, but to the entire nation as a whole, she’s either a liar, or grossly incompetent. One or the other. Very simple. Personally, it’s probably both.”
He added, “Not only am I the law and order candidate, but I’m also the candidate of compassion. Believe it, the candidate of compassion. But you can’t have true compassion without providing safety for the citizens of our country. Every kid in America should be able to securely walk the streets, in their own neighborhood, without harm. Everyone will be protected equally, and treated justly, without prejudice. We will be tough. We will be smart. We will be fair, and we will protect all Americans.”
