Trump expected to lift ban on military gear to local police forces

Good move by President Trump.  This ban never should have never occurred in the first place.  Out police forces needs all types of equipment to with public unrest that is stoked by the Left as a political tool taught to them by Saul Alinsky. 

USA Today reports the Trump administration is preparing to lift a controversial ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to police departments whose battlefield-style response to rioting in a St. Louis suburb three years ago prompted a halt to the program.

The new plan, outlined in documents obtained by USA TODAY, would roll back an Obama administration executive order that blocked armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition and other heavy equipment from being re-purposed from foreign battlefields to America's streets.

On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled to address the annual meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union, and he may outline the program changes there.
