WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — After a roundtable discussion in Dallas Thursday over police reform, President Donald Trump said the nation needs stronger police forces.

13th Congressional District candidate and former Chief Physician at the White House, Ronny Jackson, was in Dallas with the president.

Jackson said he thought the talks went well and said police departments shouldn’t be disrespected over a few bad apples.

“Mr. Floyd’s death was obviously a horrible thing and anybody who saw that had to be horrified by that,” Jackson said. “I hope the person who is responsible for that, I won’t even call him a police officer because I think he dishonored that enough he doesn’t even deserve that title, but anybody who saw that, I hope that guys go to jail.”

Thursday the president agreed and said, “we have to respect our police, we have to take care of our police, they’re protecting us and if they’re allowed to do their job they’ll do a great job and you always have a bad apple no matter where you go, you have bad apples.”
