Reaction to President Trump’s Peace Officers Memorial Day Speech
ALEXANDRIA, VA – National Police Support Fund, a national political organization founded as a response to the growth of the anti-police movement, was in Washington D.C. this week for Peace Officers Memorial Day.
President Donald J. Trump spoke at the memorial ceremony for the third straight year. His remarks were focused on remembering the lives of fallen officers and calling on Congress to impose tougher penalties on those that kill cops. The speech was delivered to a crowd of thousands of law enforcement officers, their families, and their allied supporters from across the country that had gathered to remember those lost in the line of duty.
Based on the reactions from the crowd, the speech was well received. Executive Director of National Police Support Fund, Simon Lewis, said “We are very happy that the White House is making the issue of ambushes and attacks on police a top priority. We need to do everything we can to protect law enforcement.”
The President’s speech was just one of the many events and attractions that brought thousands of law enforcement officers from around the country to the nation’s capital for National Police Week. According to its blog, National Police Support Fund attended many other events throughout the week, including the Police Unity Tour bike ride and the honor guard competition.
When asked about the events of the week, Mr. Lewis added, “It’s a tough week for the law enforcement community but it’s great to see the country come together and remember those that we’ve lost. It was a real honor to be a sponsor this year and we’re looking forward to next year.”
