The Fraternal Order of Police announced it is endorsing President Trump for reelection.
The organization which prides itself on being the nation’s largest police union unanimously voted to back President Trump for another term as Commander-in-Chief
They revealed the endorsement was made by canvassing more than 355,000 of its members across the country.
“Public safety will undoubtedly be a main focus for voters in this year’s election,” said Fraternal Order of Police National President Patrick Yoes. “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. The FOP is proud to endorse a candidate who calls for law and order across our nation. He has the full and enthusiastic support of the FOP.”
“During his first four years, President Trump has made it crystal clear that he has our backs,” Yoes continued. “Our members know that he listens to the concerns of our brothers and sisters in uniform and is able to make tough decisions on the issues most important to law enforcement. President Trump is committed to keeping our communities and families safe.”
The organization represents nearly half of America’s 800,000 sworn police officers.
Of the last six presidential endorsements the organization made all but one candidate went on to win their bid for the White House. The organization endorsed Trump in 2016, declined to endorse in 2012 and the one candidate they backed that was unsuccessful was Senator John McCain in 2008.
