HALL: President Trump supports law and order

In times of such extremism and outright violence, choosing a leader for our nation has never been so crucial. Unlike the radical leftists controlling Joe Biden’s campaign, President Trump has made it evident that he represents law and order.

On June 1, 2020, President Trump addressed the American people from the Rose Garden and pledged to always uphold the laws of this great nation after “professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa and others” ravished American cities and disrupted thousands of peaceful protests for weeks on end. “America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom and our very way of life. But where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future. We must never give in to anger or hatred. If malice or violence reigns, then none of us is free. I take these actions today with firm resolve and with a true and passionate love for our country. By far, our greatest days lie ahead.”

Meanwhile, Democratic leaders were educating candidate Biden in the ways of liberal delusion. In 2002, then-Sen. Biden wrote an op-ed for the Delaware State News calling for the placement of more cops on the streets, claiming that more cops equated to less crime. Eighteen years later, Biden has abandoned this logic and become a Trojan Horse for the radical left like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Kamala Harris, his chosen running mate. Both, who were voted as 2019’s most liberal senators, have totally abandoned the men and women in uniform in North Carolina and across the nation.

These leftists are supporting and standing up for demonstrators who say that public safety reimagined is a future without police. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — a co-chair of Biden’s climate task force — says police departments need to be “defunded,” even claiming a $1.5 billion cut to the NYPD is not enough.

Simply put, President Trump is winning over the silent majority as the anti-police Democratic party is hiding their candidate in the basement. I am confident that voters in North Carolina understand that this November’s election comes down to one easy choice: law and order or chaos?

When I became a part of the North Carolina House of Representatives five years ago, I vowed to work tirelessly to improve the quality of life for all citizens. That mentality and promise is one that voters should look for in a commander in chief — President Donald J. Trump is the only one who will answer the call for an end to the madness and restore order to our great state of North Carolina.
