Donald Trump: “I am the Law and Order Candidate!” [VIDEO]

In the wake of the mass shooting in Dallas that left 5 police officers dead and several others injured, GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump weighed in on the issue at a campaign stop in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

He identified himself as the “law and order candidate,” in contrast to Hillary Clinton, whom he called “weak, ineffective, [and] pandering.” In addition, he pointed out her apparent propensity for corruption by referencing her email scandal, an “embarrassment” which he said shows that she’s either a “liar or grossly incompetent,” or “probably both.”

Along with being the “law and order candidate,” Donald Trump also said that he’s the “candidate of compassion,” something that he said is not possible without first providing security for all Americans.

Here’s what he had to say:

We must maintain law and order at the highest level, or we will cease to have a country. 100%, we will cease to have a country.

I am the law and order candidate. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is weak, ineffective, pandering, and as proven by her recent e-mail scandal – which was an embarrassment not only to her, but to the entire nation as a whole – she’s either a liar or grossly incompetent. One or the other. Very simple. Personally, it’s probably both.

Not only am I the law and order candidate, but I’m also the candidate of compassion. Believe it – the candidate of compassion.

But you can’t have true compassion without providing safety to the citizens of our country. Every kid in America should be able to securely walk the streets in their own neighborhood without harm.

Everyone will be protected equally and treated justly without prejudice. We will be tough. We will be smart. We will be fair. And we will protect all Americans.
