The activist preacher tore into the Republican at the weekly gathering of his National Action Network in Harlem on Saturday.

A day earlier, the president spoke to law enforcement professionals at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood. Trump said violence and murder on US soil by the MS-13 gang, which is linked to El Salvador, justify a strong police response.

The president said his administration is removing from the United States gang members terrorising communities on Long Island and other parts of the country.

He added:

“Now, we’re getting them out anyway, but we’d like to get them out a lot faster, and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, I said, please don’t be too nice.”

That means, for instance, shielding their heads from being bumped while getting into a police vehicle, Trump said.

They were “a reckless disregard for the law, and set a tone that is dangerous and biased in this country”.
