Donald Trump reacted to the attack on Paul Pelosi during an interview with Americano Media.
He said what happened to Paul Pelosi was a “terrible thing” and discussed the general crime issue in Democrat-run cities.
Trump said, what is happening in Chicago “was far worse than Afghanistan.”
Former President Donald Trump shared his reaction to the assault of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul in a new interview on Saturday.
“These people are crazy. They’re going to release stone cold killers out of the jails. Nobody knows why. I mean, they need room or something. Yeah, with Paul Pelosi, that’s a terrible thing; with all of them, it’s a terrible thing. Look at what’s happened to San Francisco, generally, look at what is happening in Chicago. It was far worse than Afghanistan,” Trump said during the interview.
“When I had Afghanistan. I told you, 18 months, we went without one soldier being shot and you look at what happens in Chicago in one weekend; last weekend was brutal. It was like a warzone. No, we have to give the police back their dignity, their respect. They can solve the problem,” he added.
During the interview, Trump also called for police officers to be given back their dignity and respect.
He said they are the solution to fixing the problem.
The former president said police officers must be given back their dignity and respect in order to solve the problem.
“But today if a police officer says something that’s slightly out of line it’s like the end of his life, the end of his pension, the end of his family,” Trump said. “We can’t do that. We have to give the police back their authority and their power and their respect. Because this country is out of control.”
