Trump Endorses Police Killing People Without Trials: ‘There Has to be Retribution’

President Donald Trump openly endorsed police killing people without trials during a bizarre interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Sept. 12.

Trump was speaking about the police killing of self-described anti-fascist Michael Forest Reinoehl who was suspected — never placed on trial — of fatally shooting a far-right activist in Portland, Oregon:

I put out, “When are you going to go get him?” And the U.S. Marshals went in to get him. There has to be retribution.

Speaking to the Washington Post, a witness contradicted the police narrative that Reinoehl “produced a firearm” when officers attempted to arrest him:

Reinoehl was clutching a cellphone and eating a gummy worm as he walked to his car… That’s when officers opened fire without first announcing themselves or trying to arrest him.
