(PoliticalLookout.com)- President Donald Trump has long said that he would protect the American people. During a recent interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, the president reaffirmed that commitment and said that his administration is preparing to do something “much stronger” to combat rising violence and crime in Democrat-controlled cities
The president described how he has already sent in tens of thousands of federal law enforcement agents to clean up the city streets and arrest dangerous instigators, but he also suggested that he’s going to be doing much more. The comments came after his administration sent federal agents from ICE and CBP into Portland and Seattle, where far-left violence has been raging for weeks non-stop.
“I have offered them all, every one of them, and there’s 10 of them,” Trump said. “We’re offering all of them. Let us go in. We will clean it up. We will clean it up.”

The president said that he is ready and willing to send in a further 75,000 agents who “really know what they’re doing” in order to clean up Democrat-controlled cities. Trump also suggested, however, that he would rather do it with the support of Democratic leaders – a move that stands in stark contrast to the narrative pushed by Democrats that the president is an authoritarian dictator.
“But, as you know, we have to be invited in,” Trump said. “At some point, we’re going to have to do something that’s much stronger than being invited in. But we have to be invited in.”
President Trump also told Hannity that the cities that are the most dangerous in terms of violent crime are being run by “very liberal people.” He said that in some cases, those leaders could also be described as “radical left” Democrats.
“If they invited us in, we’d go in with 50,000, 75,000 people,” he added. “We would be able to solve it, like you wouldn’t believe, and quick. But they just don’t want to ask, maybe for political reasons. But they don’t want to ask. It’s a disgrace.”
President Donald Trump has been calling for law and order for weeks and months, but Democratic leaders refuse to accept help from the federal government likely over fears that it could help Trump in the November presidential elections.
