Policing Matters Podcast: What can cops expect from a Trump presidency?
Jim and Doug discuss what Trump means for Executive Order 13688, as well as various impacts his presidency will likely have on the criminal justice system
In an historic surprise victory, Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. What can police officers expect from the White House after his inauguration on January 20, 2017? Having already telephoned the families of officers killed in the line of duty, one might rightly surmise that Trump will demonstrate more support for law enforcement than the outgoing Democrat whose two terms saw police and politicians pitted against each other. Jim and Doug discuss whether or not Executive Order 13688 — which prohibits certain military surplus from being donated to police — will be repealed, as well as various impacts a Trump presidency will likely have on the criminal justice system.
