President Trump Receives Endorsement from Police Unions
National Association of Police Organizations endorses President Trump.
The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents more than 1,000 police units and associations nationwide, is endorsing President Trump’s re-election bid, recognizing his “steadfast and very public support” of law enforcement officers.
“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,” wrote the group’s president, Michael McHale.
Florida Police Benevolent Association, the largest police union in Florida with 30,000 members, voted to endorse President Trump in the 2020 election.
The Florida Police Benevolent Association’s president, John Kazanjian, said that Trump has sided with law enforcement amid a wave of anti-police sentiment during nationwide protests against police brutality and racial injustice that have taken place over the past several months.
“I spelled it out. What’s going on in not just in Florida but across this country that, ‘Hey, you know what, we’re getting beat up. We’re being used like a punching bag, and we’re tired of it. And President Donald Trump has been there for us. He supported us,'” .
