Normally police unions support Democrats. This important endorsement certainly reflects a split in the Democratic Party as many on the left continue to attack police and push to defund departments. As skyrocketing crime continues across the country, it is reprehensible that anyone take this position.
The following is RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce’s statement on the NAPO endorsement:
“The endorsement of President Trump by the National Association of Police Organizations demonstrates Trump’s commitment to law enforcement and its mission in our nation. He has and will always defend our police and understand the vital role they play in our cities and all of our communities. Trump truly is the Law and Order President, who understands that these tireless men and women risk their lives each day to protect our citizens and keep our communities safe.”
