Trump-Xi Palm Beach summit: ‘Significant law enforcement presence’ promised

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.

Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw says there will be a “significant law enforcement presence” when President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping arrive today for their summit at Mar-a-Lago.

 

Comparing law enforcement preparations to those that come as a hurricane is approaching, Bradshaw said sheriff’s deputies and the Secret Service will be quick to crack down at the first sign of unruliness around Mar-a-Lago or the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Manalapan, where the Chinese delegation is staying.

 

“We are not going to tolerate any civil disobedience, throwing of objects, or any other type of disorderly conduct whatsoever. At the first sign of that, it will be dealt with…People can come there, express their opinions, hold up all the signs they want to all day long, but when it turns to something other than that, then we are fully ready and capable to make sure that it doesn’t get out of hand,” Bradshaw said.
