Trump Calls For Return To ‘Law And Order’

On Thursday, Donald Trump — while attending the wake for a slain New York City police officer — called for a return to “law and order,” reported the Daily Wire.

Trump met with people close to slain police officer Jonathan Diller, including his widow and 1-year-old son. Diller met his death on Monday during a traffic stop in Queens.

“What happened is such a sad, sad event,” Trump said after the funeral. “ Such a horrible thing, and it’s happening all too often and we’re just not going to let it happen, we just can’t.”

“But the Diller family will, you’ll never be the same, you can never be the same, but we have to stop it, we have to stop it,” Trump continued.

“We have to get back to law and order,” Trump stated. “We have to do a lot of things differently because this is not working. This is happening too often.”

“This is such a sad occasion. The only thing we can say is maybe something is going to be learned. We’ve got to strengthen it up, we’ve got to toughen it up,” Trump said.

The man accused of murdering Diller, 34-year-old Guy Rivera, was no stranger to police. Rivera had a history of run-ins with the law — at least 21 arrests — before gunning Diller down.

Diller had repeatedly instructed Rivera, who was sitting in the passenger’s seat of a car parked in Far Rockaway, Queens, to exit the vehicle. Rivera ignored Diller, pulled a gun, and shot the NYPD officer just below his protective vest.

Officer Veckash Khedna, Diller’s partner, then shot Rivera. Diller was taken to Jamaica Hospital but did not survive his wounds. Ironically, Rivera is being treated at the same hospital.

Rivera faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder related to Diller’s untimely demise.

In a press conference on Tuesday, NYC’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams admitted repeated crimes committed by “dangerous people” are a real problem in the city.

“We’ve been talking about the severe recidivism of dangerous people over and over again and how do we stop them from coming into our streets. There’s a total disregard,” Adams said.

“They could care less when they discharged that gun if they shot a cop or if they shot someone that was at Selvena Brooks‑Powers’ office, who was the councilperson that it happens right near her office. Just a total disregard,” Adams continued.

“These are bad people who are doing bad things to good people. It’s the good guys against the bad guys. And we have to recognize that,” he added.

When Democrats like NYC Mayor Adams admit there is a battle between good and evil taking place on the streets of American cities, Trump’s call for a return to law and order is not only timely but also a matter of life and death.
