How? By saying:
“The office of Sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.”
Eesh. At finest Classes was making an attempt to say that the title of “sheriff” was created in England, however that is a reasonably beneficiant studying.
First, there isn’t any motive to say race/nationality in any respect given the subject material. It is like if somebody apropos of nothing says ” that Tom Hanks is a wonderful white actor.” It is true, however you actually should surprise about somebody simply throwing that in like that.
Second, the way in which the sentence reads, it sounds extra like he is saying legislation enforcement is an Anglo-American custom.
In context, this matches proper into the Trump white nationalist populism narrative that white individuals ought to concern the opposite — immigrants, minorities, individuals from “shithole countries” — as a result of they’re criminals. In the meantime white individuals invented legislation and order.
It has been a part of his platform from the very first speech.
