Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump called himself the “law and order candidate” and ripped Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as deceitful and incompetent during remarks in Virginia on Monday.
Trump praised the police at the outset of his speech in Virginia Beach in response to the mass shooting in Dallas, Texas, that killed five policemen last week. Trump said he would fight to make sure every American citizen had a safe home and 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,” Trump said. “I am the law and order candidate.”
