Trump has hijacked the DNC convention… on twitter at least. Check out what the GOP nominee had to say and forward on. You will LOVE the message.
GOP nominee Donald Trump stole the limelight away from the Democrat National Convention Wednesday night by issuing a tweet that contained what the pitiful convention lacked: truth.
“Shooting deaths of police officers up 78 percent this year,” the presidential candidate and proud supporter of law enforcement tweeted. “We must restore law and order and protect our great law enforcement officers!”
Some liberals immediately tried to refute Trump’s tweet by claiming that police deaths have actually dropped during President Barack Obama’s presidency, but that had nothing whatsoever to do with the billionaire candidate’s assertion.
According to a study recently published by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the shooting deaths of law enforcement agents did in fact spike by 78 percent in the first half of 2016 compared to the previous year, Fox News reported.
Shooting deaths of police officers up 78% this year. We must restore law and order and protect our great law enforcement officers!

This spike in police deaths, as well as the increase in violent crime that resulted from the Ferguson Effect, show that law and order do in reality need to be restored to the United States, where far too many drug dealers and illegal immigrants, among others, run free.
