Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi greeted the president on the tarmac.
The special counsel investigation is reportedly near completion, and the special counsel's team is said to be in negotiations with White House counsel on a possible interview with Trump. "But we had a very good talk, I will say".
Trump gave a more somber speech than he does at political rallies, but he still slipped in some inflammatory asides.
He said reducing crime starts with respecting law enforcement.
"The Democrats fight us at every turn".
He decried "disgraceful" politicians who criticize police actions.
'Politicians who spread this unsafe anti-police sentiment make life easier for criminals and more risky for law-abiding citizens, and they also make it more unsafe for police, and it must stop, and it must stop now, ' he said.
President Donald Trump delivered remarks at the 125th annual Conference and Exposition of the International Association of Chiefs of Police on Monday afternoon in Orlando, Florida - and he heaped praise on attendees' courageous efforts in working with federal Immigration and Customs' Enforcement (ICE) personnel to keep America safe.
President Donald Trump says they actually have a good relationship. Mr. Trump said he's asked the Justice Department to work with local law enforcement in Chicago to end the ACLU pact, which he called a "terrible deal" that "ties law enforcement's hands".
Illegal immigration is always a big part of that, from Trump's campaign promise to building a wall at the Mexico border, to eliminating sanctuary cities, the administration hopes a crackdown will reduce the crime rate.
In 2013, a federal judge ruled that the New York Police Department's use of stop and frisk tactics disproportionately targeted black and Hispanic people, saying police had violated the U.S. Constitution's protections against unreasonable searches.
"It works", Mr. Trump said of stop-and-frisk techniques. He went on to say that he ordered the feds, "to work with local authorities to try to change the awful deal the city of Chicago entered into with ACLU ... and to strongly consider stop and frisk". He also encouraged the city to embrace the stop-and-frisk policing method, in which large numbers of people are temporarily detained, questioned and sometimes searched for drugs and weapons. "The crime spree is a awful blight on [Chicago] and we'll do everything possible to get it done".
Terry v. OH was a 1968 Supreme Court case, decided 8-1, that gave police the power to stop and frisk a person they reasonably suspect is illegally armed or committing a crime, or about to commit a crime.
"I like his policies and what he's done for law enforcement", Mr. Jimenez said. "This is going to be a piece of cake getting you confirmed, '" he said to laughter.
