He’s the candidate that will maintain law and order in our country.
Donald J. Trump.
Elect Biden, and you’ll see BLM and ANTIFA running wild through the streets.
That’s why Trump’s received so many endorsements from police and police unions around the country.
And he just secured the endorsement of the largest police union in the country!
Business Insider has the details:
The largest police union in the US, which represents more than 355,000 police officers, endorsed Donald Trump for president on Friday.
“Look at what the national discourse has focused on for the last six months. President Trump has shown time after time that he supports our law enforcement officers and understands the issues our members face every day,” said Patrick Yoes, President of the Fraternal Order of Police in a press release. “The FOP is proud to endorse a candidate who calls for law and order across our nation.”
The statement aligns with President Trump’s attempts to brand himself as “your president of law and order,” a claim his rival Joe Biden has questioned. Trump reacted to nationwide protests against police brutality by condemning looting and sending National Guard troops and federal law enforcement to Washington, D.C. and Portland Oregon, while falsely accusing Biden of trying to defund the police.
The FOP isn’t the only police union to come out in support in Trump. During last week’s Republican National Convention, Pat Lynch of the Patrolmen Benevolent Association, the largest police union in New York City, endorsed Trump as well, Gothamist reported.
The National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted the following in support of Trump:
This is a big deal folks.
The line in the sand is clear.
Choose Trump for law and order, or choose Biden for chaos.
And if you didn't catch it at the RNC, a big-time police union leader, Michael McHale, explained why police are so pro-Trump.
The LA Times reported on McHale's explanation:
While Kenosha, Wis., and other cities continued to rock Wednesday with protests over the police shooting of an unarmed Black man, the Republican National Convention heard from a police union leader who said the true root of violence in the streets is elected officials “refusing to allow law enforcement to protect our communities.”
Michael McHale, president of the Nation Assn. of Police Organizations, made no reference to this week’s shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He instead focused on how President Trump would protect police and communities from what he depicted as the menace of people taking to the streets.
“The violence and bloodshed we are seeing in these and other cities isn’t happening by chance,” said McHale, a veteran police officer from Sarasota, Fla. “It’s the direct result of refusing to allow law enforcement to protect our communities.”
“The differences between Trump/Pence and Biden/Harris are crystal clear,” McHale said. “Your choices are the most pro-law-enforcement president we have ever had or the most radical anti-police ticket in our history.”
