Former President Donald Trump attended Thursday’s wake of New York City Police Officer Jonathan Diller, who was gunned down in the line of duty on March 25. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has made crime a focus of his third White House campaign, and accused President Joe Biden of lacking toughness.

“We have to get back to law and order,” President Trump said to reporters gathered outside the funeral home. “This is happening too often.”

The visitation for Officer Diller, who was fatally shot during a traffic stop on Monday, was being held in suburban Massapequa. Police said the 31-year-old was shot below his bulletproof vest while approaching an illegally parked car in Queens.

Officer Diller, who was married and had a 1-year-old son, was rushed to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
