We have to bring law and order back to this country - Donald Trump



Donald Trump turns up the racially charged rhetoric with three simple words.
Ahead of the Republican national convention in Cleveland this week, Donald Trump is doubling down on a phrase burdened by the country's history of racial strife.

"We have to bring law and order back to this country," the presumptive nominee said on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning.

The words "law and order" recall the racially charged politics of the tumultuous civil-rights era. The phrase was frequently used by politicians in the 1960s who opposed the civil rights demonstrations and seemed to imply that African Americans were inherently unruly and dangerous.

Some law-and-order policies, such as the the crime legislation President Bill Clinton signed in 1994, have had support from black voters who hoped that policing and strict punishments for criminals would control violent crime in their neighborhoods.

Yet Trump's resurrection of the phrase, with all its connotations, could prove especially divisive at a time when crime rates are historically low and when many in both parties are calling for a less punitive criminal justice system
