Trump Makes ‘Law and Order’ Pitch to Black, Latino Voters in WH Speech

President Donald Trump gave a “peaceful protest” campaign speech Saturday from the White House as he continues his coronavirus recovery, telling Black and Latino supporters “you have to have police support you.”

Trump ridiculed former Vice President Joe Biden and Democrats during the “Blexit” campaign rally organized by Candace Owens and former Arizona police officer Brandon Tatum. The Blexit group touts itself as a movement encouraging minorities to leave the Democratic Party.

His repeated calls for “law and order” were paired with searing criticisms that Biden has “betrayed” Black and Hispanic Americans during his decades in office. Chants of “USA” echoed across the White House lawn as Trump said minority communities are rejecting “radical socialism” and a “nationwide crusade against” police officers that he claimed was being led by Biden.

Trump said his “pro-police” campaign is necessary in order for Blacks and Latinos in cities across the U.S. to feel safe under urban Democratic leaders.

“Sleepy Joe Biden, he’s betrayed Black and Latino Americans, if you think he can run this country you’re wrong. For half a century. We’ve got to vote these people into oblivion, got to get rid of them, so bad for our country,” Trump said. “Black and Latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialist left and embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police—we have to have law and order—and pro-American agenda. I want to thank the Blexit Foundation for organizing this event.”
