President Trump took a shot at former President Barack Obama in a speech before federal, state, and local law enforcement Friday, and said unlike the "old days," the American people have their backs.

"We have your backs. Believe me, we have your backs, 100 percent. Not like the old days," Trump said during a speech at Suffolk County Community College on Friday.

"When you want to take over used military equipment, they were saying you couldn't do it. You know what I said? That was my first day, you can do it," Trump said, referencing the Pentagon's 1033 Program. "In fact, that stuff is disappearing so fast, we have none left. You really knew how to get that. But that's my honor, and I'll tell you what, it's being put to good use."

Trump spoke with members of law enforcement about MS-13, a violent international gang that has been linked to a surge of violence on Long Island.
