As suggested by Machiavelli, there is a need to carefully balance between individual freedoms and the rules of law in a civil society. In America, the first and second amendment rights make it much more difficult to exercise law and order. Police in America face a greater risk of getting shot as compared to most countries where guns are not readily available. Not surprisingly, President Trump is a strong advocate of law and order. He believes a country cannot exist if it cannot protect its borders and if there is no respect for law and order by the citizens. He campaigned for a border wall to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs into the country. He has also defended the police and called for the National Football League to stop their players from kneeling in protest during the flag display and the national anthem.
