“We cannot tolerate, as a society, the spilling of innocent, young, wonderful, vibrant people — sons and daughters, even husbands and wives.”
President Donald Trump gave a speech in New York on Friday to law enforcement officers about street gangs, which he wants to crack down on.
He ended up giving a rambling soliloquy that touched on, well, a lot of stuff. Here are some of the most bizarre comments he made.

“He looks very mean. I said, ‘That’s what I’m looking for.'”
“He looks very nasty. He looks very mean. I said, that’s what I’m looking for,” Trump said about the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Tom Homan. “That’s exactly what I was looking for.”
“Like in the old Wild West, right?”
“One by one we’re liberating our American towns. Can you believe that I’m saying that?” Trump said while speaking about MS-13 gang members. “It’s like I’d see in a movie. They’re liberating a town, like in the old Wild West, right?”
“Don’t worry about it.”
In a vague comment, Trump referenced issues with other countries, but it was unclear what exactly he was talking about.
“We had some problems with certain countries, still do with a couple, but we’ll take care of them, don’t worry about it,” Trump said.
