Trump: “Chokeholds Sound So Innocent, So Perfect”

Sometimes if you’re alone and you’re fighting somebody, it’s tough. We have some real bad people. You saw that in the last couple of weeks. I think the concept of chokeholds sounds so innocent, so perfect, and then you realize if it’s a 1-on-1. Now if it’s 2-on-1 that’s a little bit of a different story. Depending on the toughness and strength. You know, we’re talking about the toughness and strength. There’s a physical thing here also.

“But if a police officer is in a bad scuffle and he’s got somebody and that does happen, so you have to be careful. With that being said it would be I think a very good thing that – generally speaking – it should be ended. I want to see really compassionate but strong law enforcement, police force, but law enforcement, and I don’t want to see mistakes.” – Donald Trump, in a just-aired segment of his interview with Fox & Friends host Harris Faulkner.
