Speaking to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation at their 45th Annual Awards Dinner, President Barack Obama had harsh words about the efforts Fox News takes to make it seem like he hates cops.
I want to repeat, because somehow this never shows up on Fox News. I want to repeat, because I’ve said it a lot, unwaveringly, all the time, our law enforcement officers do outstanding work in an incredibly difficult and dangerous job.
President Obama continued:
They put their lives on the line for our safety. We appreciate them and we love them. That’s why my task force on 21st century policing made a set of recommendations that I want to see implemented to improve their safety, as well as to make sure that our criminal justice system is being applied fairly.
