WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump used a Capitol Hill ceremony for fallen law enforcement officers on Wednesday to criticize some big-city prosecutors he asserts don’t go after criminals who pose a severe threat to public safety.

Trump also called for the death penalty for killing officers. And he made an apparent reference to the case of actor Jussie Smollett. He says “those who file false police reports should face full legal consequences.”

Smollett was charged with felony disorderly conduct and accused of making a false police report after claiming he was attacked. The Cook County state’s attorney’s office abruptly dropped the charges in March.

Trump spoke Wednesday at the 38th annual memorial service, which honored 228 peace officers who died in the line of duty last year.
