Joe Biden just lost a whole lot of votes.
The National Association of Police Organizations has backed President Donald Trump for Re-Election on Wednesday.
They had backed Obama/Biden twice during their Administrations.
From our friends atFox News:
The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) endorsed President Trump’s reelection Wednesday, praising his “steadfast and very public support” for law enforcement.
NAPO did not endorse a candidate in the 2016 election but endorsed former President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections.
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 in a letter.
The police association, which represents more than 1,000 police associations and 241,000 officers, met with Trump on Monday.
Officers have faced routine disparaging in wake of nationwide racial injustice protests, and some have called out presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden for not condemning anti-police rhetoric.
While Biden’s campaign has staunchly opposed the idea of abolishing police departments, the candidate said that some funding should “absolutely” be redirected from the police.
In a Now This interview with activist Ady Barkan, the presumptive Democratic nominee said police forces don’t need surplus military equipment, saying this is what leads them to “become the enemy” in a community.
Biden campaign Rapid Response Director Andrew Bates said last month that the former vice president supports “the urgent need for reform,” which he said 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 Biden campaign has pointed to the former vice president’s criminal justice plan, which proposes an additional $300 million for community policing. Bates said that the funding would “improve relationships between officers and residents” and would “provide the training that is needed to avert tragic, unjustifiable deaths.”
Trump, for his part, has billed himself as the president of “law and order.” During the NAPO meeting Trump on Monday planned to make his pitch to the National Association of Police Organizations as to why the group should endorse him.
“Our officers have been under vicious assault,” Trump said Monday during a roundtable with people whose lives have been positively impacted by law enforcement. “Reckless politicians have defamed our heroes as the enemy…These radical politicians want to defund and abolish the police.”
Trump added: “My administration is pro-safety, pro-police and anti-crime.”
The Hill also covered the monumental backing of support for the President's reelection campaign:
The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents more than 1,000 police units and associations across the country, announced Wednesday it is endorsing President Trump in his reelection bid.
“Our endorsement recognizes your steadfast and very public support for our men and women on the front lines, especially during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by so many,” the association said in a public letter to Trump.
The Trump campaign lauded the endorsement as highlighting that Trump is the “Law and Order President,” a term he deemed himself last month as he threatened to mobilize federal resources to clamp down on protesters demonstrating against police brutality across the country.
“President Trump fights every day for the cops that keep us safe. Joe Biden has done nothing to stop his party’s 'defund the police' movement and remains silent as police officers across the country are being attacked by violent rioters and protesters,” Bob Paduchik, the campaign’s senior advisor for law enforcement and labor unions, said in a statement.
“This endorsement for President Trump highlights that as the Law and Order President, he is defending the hardworking people who risk their own lives every day to keep our communities safe," he added.
The police association’s endorsement also comes after Trump held a law enforcement roundtable at the White House earlier this week."
It'd be polite to say that Democrats are leaving our law enforcement out to dry.
But really, they're complicit in the Police that are being ambushed, assaulted, and murdered by criminals all over this country in the last several weeks.
Joe Biden isn't beholden to principals but rather to opportunism.
When push comes to shove, he won't support our Police either.
He'll fold to the mob on them just like he has folded to the mob on every other majory subject being discussed in this year's campaign.
I'm glad that the National Association of Police Organizations see that too.
