Donald Trump to first responders: "We're with you"

BY WFOX

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump got a standing ovation as he walked into a room full of first responders in St. Johns County.

On Monday, Trump sat between St. Johns County Sheriff David Shoar and Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and with a backdrop bearing the words “Taking care of people.” Trump vowed to protect those in uniform if elected.

 

“You’re in a very tough position, but you get no backing, you don’t get any backing, so that will change,” Trump said.

Inside the room were police officers, firefighters and paramedics.

Many voiced their concerns about not feeling support from the White House and some described feeling under attack.

 

A St. Lucie County firefighter talked about being shot at while on the job.

“In certain areas of the county, we are issued bullet proof vests and we wear them when we get out of the vehicle,” the St. Lucie firefighter said.

With the election 15 days away, Trump recognized the importance of Florida and said, “If we win Florida, we win the whole thing.”

 

“We’re doing very well in Florida. Where we are now which is my second home. I’m here all the time and I have tremendous amounts of employees and jobs very successful in Florida, different parts of Florida,” Trump said.

In all, he spoke to the group for about 20 minutes, claiming that he’s going to win and citing that some polls have him ahead of the election. He also thanked the first responders for their support.

 

 

Later, Trump tweeted that he was honored to have the endorsement of the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, but the agency denied making any official endorsement.

5:57
and you know what you think that's just
6:01
a total breakdown of our society to tone
6:04
it down
6:06
can you imagine it going to a flyer for
6:08
they're putting out fire people shooting
6:10
very more and more of the last year's so
6:14
this is over the last couple of years
6:16
this phenomena to lack of respect for
6:20
our country
6:27
coast is clear
6:34
guilty
6:38
condition that's the problem was the
6:42
executive branch they've always
6:45
adventure government used to support his
6:49
partner safety of the seismic shift in
6:56
America with police force and she was so
7:08
afraid subject is pretty good thinking
7:13
to drugs and violence that she had a
7:16
very bad incident just because of what
7:20
situation that you get me back so i
7:34
think that's a resounding thing we will
7:35
hear from everybody at this table is a
7:37
real partner together we are we all work
7:40
together we may wear different uniforms
7:41
but we all that we depend on each other
7:44
and
7:44
and where the first time table for the
7:49
thousands millions of law enforcement
7:51
officers firefighters and paramedics out
7:53
there
7:54
we're glad somebody's gonna stand with
7:56
us this will stand with us to make and a
8:00
hard job safer that's that's why we're a
8:03
hundred simplified receta Jewish sound
8:05
the next speaker is a retired Special
8:08
Agent in Charge was telling from the
8:10
fourth wall this is actually my awesome
8:12
that works a lot better
8:36

8:48
an increase or first half from last year
8:53
in my 30 years its part 1 45 is $OPERAND
9:01
of those 214 businesses of ambush
9:07
attacks on police officers in this is it
9:14
not recruit retain their families
9:19
worried about to get our president and
9:23
Hillary Clinton continued to show not
9:27
support for all 44 absolutely and that
9:32
their losses for contributes more
9:38
four police officers and very violent
9:41
situations and is it wasn't for all of
9:44
us not only long as firefighters also
9:47
very very concerned about that
9:51
yes our enforcement officers were as use
9:55
that thousands and thousands of hours
9:58
every day this compared to let's say 15
10:03
years ago I can tell you my respect not
10:06
only myself but is longer than the blind
10:20
out everything else society whether it's
10:22
