Police are "despondent" after the shooting deaths that targeted officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge and many feel that President Barack Obama does not do enough to back them, Sen. Bob Corker said on Monday, The Blaze reports.

Speaking at a breakfast for New York delegates to the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Cleveland, Corker said that in contrast police unions and other officers view Trump as a firm supporter.

The Blaze reported Corker as telling the delegates that "When they hear Trump's name, they light up, because they feel like they finally have someone who will stand behind them."

The first day of the RNC has the theme "Make America Safe Again," during which criticism is expected against Obama for his reaction to a wave of attacks targeting police officers.

Obama has accused critics of exacerbating a difficult situation and cautioned Americans at a press conference following the shootings in Baton Rouge to tone down "inflammatory rhetoric" and "careless accusations."

Corker, who was viewed as a possible running mate for Trump before Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was chosen, also talked about foreign policy with the delegates, The Jewish Week reported.

He criticized Obama for allowing Syrian President Bashar Assad to cross the "red line" he had imposed for using chemical weapons, which allowed Russia to regain its strong influence in the region.

In a similar fashion, Obama's failings empowered Moscow to exercise its muscle in west Crimea and weak American responses to crises around the globe and have emboldened enemies of the United States.
