President Donald Trump delivered a speech to attendees at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in Orlando on Monday.
Opening his remarks to the assembled law enforcement leaders at the annual conference, Trump said, "I have great, great love for what you do and the way you do it."
Trump added, "During my campaign for President, I had the chance to spend time with law enforcement officials all across our country. They are the most incredible people you will ever meet. And I just wanted to say to all of them right now, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you."
The president said that he wanted to convey the message that police in America have a "true friend in the White House."
"I stand with you," Trump said. "I support our police. I support our sheriffs. And we support the men and women of law enforcement."
