WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Donald Trump’s plans for mass deportations once he is sworn in as US president would create problems between police and the communities they’re hired to protect and will prove counterproductive to law enforcement, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters after meeting with Trump on Wednesday.

"I gave him the perspective of the NYPD, that any initiative that would create a rift between our police all over the country and the communities they serve…that would sow distrust between law enforcement and neighborhoods, would be counterproductive," de Blasio said at a news conference outside Trump Tower, the president-elect’s longtime residence.

Furthermore, de Blasio said he stressed in his meeting with Trump the importance of inclusive policies that encourage residents to cooperate with police officers.
