Former President Donald Trump unveiled his new plan to stop "out-of-control crime and keep all Americans safe" in a video released on Monday. In the video, the 2024 presidential candidate outlined how he "reduced violent crime and stood strongly with America’s law enforcement."
"On Joe Biden’s watch, violent crime has skyrocketed and communities have become less safe as he defunded, defamed, and dismantled police forces," Trump said. "Joe Biden and the ‘Defund the Police’ Democrats have turned our once great cities into cesspools of bloodshed and crime."
Trump outlined the steps he will take to make the United States a safer country.
A press release stated that "Trump will sign a record investment in hiring, retention, and training for police officers. The bill will increase vital liability protections for America’s law enforcement officers."
"Police forces have been gutted by Democrats," Trump said. "The Democrats want to take protections away from our police. We want them to do their jobs and we want them to do their jobs right," Trump said.
Secondly, Trump will require local law enforcement agencies receiving Department of Justice grants to "return to proven policing measures such as stop-and-frisk, strictly enforcing existing gun laws, cracking down on the open use of illegal drugs, and cooperating with ICE to arrest and deport criminal aliens."
Third, Trump said he will "take on the radical Marxist prosecutors who have abolished cash bail and refuse to charge criminals. President Trump will direct the DOJ to open civil rights investigations into radical leftist prosecutor’s officers, such as those in Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco to determine whether they have illegally engaged in race-based law enforcement."
Trump said he will work with Congress to ensure that victims of those policies have the right to sue local officials "for harm and suffering."
Fourth, Trump would, as president, instruct the Department of Justice to "dismantle every gang, street crew, and drug network in America." Trump has also called for the death penalty for drug and human traffickers.
"We already know where these turf wars and drug dens are. We know who the people are. And we're going to charge them and charge the culprits with every crime that we can find. We're going to be fair, but we're going to be tough. We also need the death penalty for drug dealers, so important. And I'd also add to that human traffickers. Drug dealers and human traffickers. They get the death penalty, watch it stop and stop quickly," said Trump.
Fifth, Trump has committed to deploying federal assets, including the National Guard, to restore law and order across the country when local law enforcement refuses to act.
"Fifth, in cities where there has been a complete breakdown of law and order, where the fundamental rights of our citizens are being intolerably violated, I will not hesitate to send in federal assets including the National Guard until safety is restored," Trump said. If Nancy Pelosi would have accepted our National Guard or our soldiers, you wouldn't have had January 6, but she and the mayor of DC didn't do that.
Sixth, Trump said he will order the Department of Education and the DOJ to overhaul federal standards on disciplining minors.
"Many of these carjackers and criminals are 13, 14, and 15 years old. I will order the Education and Justice Departments to overhaul federal standards on disciplining minors. So, when troubled youth are out of control, they're out on the streets and they're going wild, we will stop it. The consequences are swift, certain and strong and they will know that," he said.
Finally, Trump said he will sign concealed carry reciprocity legislation, fully secure the border, dramatically increase interior enforcement, and wage war on the cartels. "Your Second Amendment does not end at the state line. In addition, I will of course fully secure the border, dramatically increase interior enforcement, and wage war on the cartels," he said.
"We have never had a border so secure as it was just two years ago. And now our border is the worst anywhere in the world, and possibly of all time. There’s never been a country that allowed to happen what's happening in the United States right now, where millions of people are pouring across our borders. They come from mental institutions. They come from the prisons. They’re all being led out so they can come into the United States. They’re poisoning our country.
"We will also take back our streets from the homeless, the drug addicted, and the mentally ill. I will discuss those plans in much more detail very soon. That is how I will bring back public safety to America. I want to thank you. We're going to Make America Great Again and we're going to Make America Safe Again," Trump concluded.
