tv President Trump Criticizes Judges Considering Travel Ban CSPAN February 9, 2017 4:36am-5:04am EST
ce, under the russian government. >> how america lost its secrets. the man and the theft. >> he did enormous damage. i don't even know if his supporters say he did no damage. say he did- they enormous good. maybe he did some good. he started a national conversation. and he opened up a subject of interest. but i think where trump is certainly right is that this man has not faced justice and he deserves to face justice. whatever will be decided. announcer: sunday night at 8:00 eastern on c-span's the -- q and a. president trump spoke to launch force me officials about the ninth circuit court of immigrationis order. rate,o talked about crime
trucks entering the country from the southern border and police killed in the line of duty. the remarks were made during the winter meeting at the chiefs association. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. [applause] pres. trump: thank you very much. this is great to be with people i truly feel comfortable with. please sit down. they will say i didn't get a
standing ovation because they never sat down. and i say, i got one standing ovation, because they never sat down, but i want to thank you all. i have great, great love for what you do and the way you do it. when i'm with the police chiefs and sheriffs of our country, and these are the big ones, these are the really big ones, i want to thank you very much. and i thought before i spoke about what we are really here to speak about, i would read something to you. because you can be a lawyer or you don't have to be a lawyer. if you were a good student in high school or a bad student in high school, you can understand this. it is really incredible to me that we had a court case that is going on so long. as you know in boston, we won it with a highly respected judge and a very strong opinion, but noweren aa ats, l's st sayth a

both sides last night, and they were talking about things that have just nothing to do with it. i listened to a panel of judges, and i will comment on that -- i will not comment on the aten me ctalyne dg t i have to be honest that if these judges wanted to, in my opinion, help thcourt terms of respect forhe court, they would do what they should be doing. it is so sad, they should be -- when you read something so simple and so beautifully written, it is so perfectly written other than the one statement, of course, having to do with he or she. but when you read something so perfectly written and so clear to anybody and then you have lawyers, and i watched last night in amazement, and i heard things i couldn't believe, things that really had nothing
to do with what i just read. and i don't ever want to call a court biased, so i will not call it biased. and we have not had a decision yet. but courts seem to be so political, and it would be so great for our justice system if they would be able to read a statement and do what is right. and that has to do with the security of our country, which is so important. right now, we are at risk because of what happened. general kelly is an extremely talented man and a very good man, now secretary kelly, homeland security. we are doing our job. he is a great man.

i would not agree with them. but we need security in our country. we have to allow you folks to do your job. you are great people. great people. great men and women. and we have to allow you to do your job. and we have to give you the weapons you need. and this is a weapon you need. and they are trying to take away from you, maybe because of politics, or maybe because of political views. we can't let that happen. so with that, let's get on to business, right? it's really something. thank you.

[applause] pres. trump: there are many actions we in the federal government can take to help improve safety in your communities, but i believe that community safety begins with moral leadership. oupoceffer sris, d puesisthr ve every day, and theare entitled to an administration that has
their back. [applause] pres. trump: the first step in restoring public safety is affirming our confidence in the men and women charged with upholding our laws. and i'm going to add justices, judges in that category. and i am very proud to have picked judge gorsuch, who i think is going to be an outstanding member of the supreme court, outstanding. [applause] pres. trump: so i would like to begin my remarks with a declaration issued to all of you and delivered to every member of the law enforcement community all across the united states. my message today is that you have a true, true friend in the white house. you have. [applause] pres. trump: i stand with you, i
support our police, i support our sheriffs, and we support the men and women of law enforcement. [applause] pres. trump: right now, many communities in america are facing a public safety crisis. murders in 2015 experienced their largest single-year increase in nearly half a century. in 2016, murders in large cities continued to climb by double digits. in many of our biggest cities, 2016 brought an increase in the number of homicides, rapes and shootings. in chicago, more than 4000 people were shot last year alone. and the rate so far this year has been even higher. what is going on in chicago? we cannot allow this to continue.
we have allowed too many young lives to be claimed, and you see that. you see that all over. claimed by gangs, and too many neighborhoods to be crippled by violence and fear. 60% of murder victims under the age of 22 are african-american. this is a national tragedy, and it requires national action. this violence must end, and we must all work together to end it. whether a child lives in detroit, chicago, baltimore, or anywhere in our country, he or she has the right to grow up in safety and in peace. no one in america should be punished because of the city where he or she is born. every child in america should be able to play outside without fear, walk home without danger, and attend a school without
being worried about drugs or gangs or violence. so many lives and so many people have been cut short, their potential, their life has been cut short. so much potential has been sidelined, and so many dreams have been shattered and broken, totally broken. it is time to stop the drugs from pouring into our country, and by the way, we will do that, and i will say this. general now secretary kelly will , be the man to do it, and we will give him a wall, and it will be a real wall, and a lot of things will happen very positively to your cities, your states, believe me. the wall is getting designed right now. a lot of people say oh, oh, trump was only kidding. i don't kid. i don't kid.
i watched this, and they say, i was kidding. no, i don't kid. i don't kid about things like that, i can tell you. we will have a wall, and it will be a great wall, and it will do -- it will be a big help. stsksrl ouwas. wls wor ju a iae th wk. iisrorldo. its meo smtlth gas rrizg r citins anits meo su tt evy unamic c b raedn eirme o denc dni, vean ppt. yoha askedorhe soce tls, ansuor yone to gethjodo. wl wter c t he you mt osdend atncdea roolan li f as vlee agnslaenrcen [alae] pr. um walsewh haen
