President Donald Trump scolded the establishment media for not sufficiently supporting law enforcement on Monday, during a speech at the International Association of Chiefs of Police convention in Florida celebrating their 125th anniversary.

“I have to say this, I don’t think you understand one thing, how much our people of this country love you and the job you do, and you don’t hear it from them,” Trump said, gesturing toward the media cameras in the room.

The audience clapped and cheered wildly in response to Trump’s remarks.

“They don’t tell you the real feeling, but I know the true feeling, you don’t hear it from the media,” Trump continued. “I just want you to know it direct.”

After one man in the audience yelled, “I love you!” Trump jokingly replied, “I love him too, he’s just not my type, I’m sorry.”

Trump said he believed that criminals who killed police officers should be tried quickly and get the death penalty.
