Pat Lynch, president of the Police Benevolent Association, said law enforcement is “staring down the barrel” of a public safety disaster and slammed Democrats for having “walked away from us.”
“The Democrats have walked away from us. Democratic politicians have surrendered our streets and institutions,” Lynch said Thursday at the Republican National Convention. “We must expose the left’s lies about police officers and the job we do. And we will do that, because we have something they don’t. We have a real leader. We have President Donald J. Trump.”
“Unlike the Democrats, who are running in fear of the mob in the street, President Trump has never apologized for standing up for law and order,” Lynch continued. “Unlike the Democrats, who froze in the face of rioting and looting, President Trump gives law enforcement the support and tools to put a stop to it – period, end of story.”
Lynch praised President Trump for his staunch support and “powerful voice defending police officers.”
“We hear the words of our President, who says to cops everywhere ‘I will never let you down.’ We’ve been fortunate to have his powerful voice defending police officers,” Lynch said. “We know that we absolutely cannot afford to lose it.”
“When it comes to your safety, your families’ safety and the safety of all Americans, there is no other choice. You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America. You can have four more years of President Trump. Or you can have no safety, no justice, no peace,” Lynch added.
The PBA union with 50,000 active and retired NYPD officers recently endorsed Trump’s reelection during an event at Trump’s private golf club in New Jersey.
