President Trump made an appeal to Hispanic voters in Nevada on Sunday, warning them that Democratic rival Joseph R. Biden “is not a strong person” to fight crime and that he would stop the economic recovery in its tracks.
Speaking at a roundtable with supporters in Las Vegas, the president cited a shooting over the weekend in which a gunman ambushed two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car.
“The thing with Biden is he’s not a strong person, and he’s not strong for law and order, and everybody knows that,” the president said. “When you see a scene like that happening last night in California — a woman, a man, shot at stone-cold range through a window — we are looking for that person.”
He pledged, “When we find that person, we are going to get much faster with our courts and we have to get much tougher with our sentencing.”
