The White House was glowing blue on Monday night in honor of law enforcement officers — something many Americans have been wanting to see for years.

President Donald Trump put on the public pro-police display for Peace Officers Memorial Day.
Speaking at a Monday service for fallen police officers, Trump said he would “always support the incredible men and women of law enforcement as much as you have always supported me.”
Last year, President Barack Obama faced intense scrutiny for refusing to turn the White House blue following the Dallas police shooting, even after a request from the head of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association.
It seems that once again Trump put his money where his mouth is at the White House.

The law enforcement community and police supporters were in full support of Trump’s show of support.
