Trump speaks at police officer’s memorial service on Capitol Hill
Mr. Trump has long made a point of voicing his support for the law enforcement community, frequently holding and attending events for the men and women in blue.
“I want to express my gratitude for what you do every day, protecting our communities, our families, our streets and taking down crime,” Mr. Trump told the International Association of Chiefs of Police in October of last year. “What you do is keep America safe and no one does that better than you. My administration always honors, cherishes and supports the men and women in blue.”
The president’s speech comes amid a “little squabble” over trade with China, as the president put it, and as a subpoena war wages on between the White House and Capitol Hill. An agreement has been reached forto testify before the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Community, as questions linger from that committee’s Russia probe.
