President Trump apparently has no plans to pardon “America’s toughest sheriff” Joe Arpaio at his campaign-style rally Tuesday night in Phoenix.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Air Force One that there would be no discussion of a pardon and no action taken on that front at any point on Tuesday.
Trump himself recently told Fox News that he was “seriously considering” a pardon for the former Maricopa County, Ariz., lawman.
“I might do it right away, maybe early this week,” Trump told Fox News on Aug. 13. “I am seriously thinking about it.”
