The NYPD is showing former President Donald Trump some love, according to a report in The New York Times that the paper doesn’t necessarily approve of.

The department appears to be protecting Trump from undue media attention as he enters and exits the Manhattan courthouse each day. The NY Times reported:

Trump continues to receive favorable treatment from the New York City Police Department. For a week, a large N.Y.P.D. dump truck has parked in the intersection of Hogan Place and Centre Street, with a uniformed driver sitting inside. Minutes before Trump’s arrival each morning, the dump truck has pulled a half-car length forward, blocking news photographers’ views of him entering the side door of the courthouse. And this afternoon, like those before it, the driver did the same maneuver for Trump’s 2:37 p.m. departure.

The New York Police Department’s treatment of Trump follows his attendance at a commemoration ceremony in March for a police officer who was killed in the line of duty. Trump attended the ceremony on the same day that President Joe Biden attended a high-dollar fundraiser with former President Barack Obama.

Under Biden’s administration, crime and migrant crime have both ravaged the nation. “We have a new form of crime in the United States—it’s called ‘migrant crime,’” Trump told Breitbart News in March. “Now, it would be called and normally I would call it ‘Biden migrant crime,’ but that’s too long and too crazy.

“But everyone knows we have a new category in crime. So we have crime, and we have migrant crime. It’s vicious, and it’s horrible, and these people are very tough. Everyone talks about the migrants coming to America; many of these people are real bad people. Many of them are sick. Many of them are mentally ill,” he said at the time.

During his presidency, Trump placed a strong emphasis on “law and order” in response to the nationwide unrest in 2020. As a result, a significant number of police and law enforcement organizations endorsed Trump over Biden. The Trump campaign estimated that approximately 900,000 officers endorsed him in the 2020 election.
