NYPD Publicly Slams And Shames President Trump

By Erica Diaz

Donald Trump is receiving some pointed criticism after a speech in Brentwood, N.Y. on Friday. 

During his speech to members of law enforcement, President Trump took the opportunity to encourage police officers not to be "too nice" when dealing with suspects they are arresting. At one point he stated: 

"Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head... you can take that hand away, OK?"

People criticized the speech and the officers who applauded Trump's suggestion almost immediately.
