Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., on Wednesday called for anyone convicted of killing a law enforcement officer to receive the death penalty and decried “senseless violence” against police.
“For months, the radical left’s defund the police movement has promoted violence, chaos and anarchy in cities across our country, while villainizing and attacking the brave men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives to keep us safe,” Loeffler told Fox News Wednesday.
“If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer,” Trump continued.
The president has been calling for the death penalty for people who kill police officers throughout his administration.
“If we’re going to be a nation of safety and security, we must be unified in our commitment to ending the senseless violence against law enforcement officers once and for all.”
