Election Police

Police union endorses Trump

Avatar

The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) has officially endorsed President Donald Trump’s reelection, praising his steadfast and very public support for law enforcement.

“NAPO has endorsed President Trump in his reelection campaign. Here is our endorsement letter which was issued following today’s meeting,” the group tweeted.

In the letter, NAPO President Michael McHale said Trump’s support is needed “during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by so many.”

“We particularly value your directing the Attorney General to aggressively prosecute those who attack our officers,” McHale wrote.

On Monday, Trump expressed his frustrations for how police in America have been being treated as of late.

“Our officers have been under vicious assault,” he said. “Reckless politicians have defamed our heroes as the enemy. These radical politicians want to defund and abolish the police. My administration is pro-safety, pro-police and anti-crime.”

NAPO endorsed former President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections. They did not issue an endorsement in 2016.

NAPO isn’t the first law enforcement group to back away from Biden. His recent shift to the left and police reform talks have caused many officers to question his leadership. The Detective Endowment Association told Fox News that they worry if Biden would stand up for them.

“Joe Biden was a very strong supporter of them years ago, and he’s been kidnapped now by the anti-police rhetoric,” the association said. “There’s a big question amongst our members if Joe Biden is going to stand up and support the police.”

The Biden campaign says that the former vice president believes there is an urgent need for reform.

“This includes funding for public schools, summer programs, and mental health and substance abuse treatment separate from funding for policing so that officers can focus on the job of policing,” the campaign said.

Biden’s criminal justice plan proposes an additional $300 million for community policing. The campaign says that the funding will improve relationships between officers and residents and would provide the training that is needed to avert tragic, unjustifiable deaths.

NAPO represents more than 1,000 police associations and 241,000 officers.

    Starting Nov. voting with 241k in the bag? (No pun intended), POTUS could do worse. I’m sure by now a few thousand dems have come over into the light also, seeing as how they’re stuck with quid pro Joe and all. It seems inevitable that other first responders will follow suit since Trump supports them all bar none. I was worried earlier this year, but it’s getting easier to breath every day. Just sayin’.

    Creepy senile Joe has been a crook, liar and an idiot his whole life. They did not give him the nickname of doofus for nothing. With the onset of dementia he is unable to tell the difference between his sister and his wife. Who in their right mind would want him to be president of our country? The best thing they could do for senile Joe is to find him his rocking chair and make sure he uses it somewhere out of sight.

    Having worked in law enforcement in the 60 good for them with there support it’s a shame as how the Democrat’s are belittling them in some cities.I hope the American people show there support at the poles this fall and elect Trump,were going to need good Leadership after our country was destroyed by these leftest.What we forget is Trump ran as being a business person ruining for office and not a politician running to be popular and do nothing as the past Presidents.

    I hope for the sake of this country and the life’s lost to protect it will not be in vain, look at what’s going on in this country and the lack of leadership of the Democratic Governorship along with Mayor’s.Having worked in Law enforcement i never dreamed that we would have allowed the things going on by the left and letting our elected official turn there backs on our law community. Hope the voting public take this into account and it should not be Democrat or Republican but Country and partner looking at Biden and company your looking at another Hong Kong.
