The Firefighters and Paramedics Union of Philidelphia has officially endorsed Donald J. Trump for re-election. In a press release, the union stated that they are breaking with the endorsement of Democrat candidate Joe Biden calling the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) endorsement “undemocratic.” When members of the union were ultimately surveyed and an outstanding majority chose to support President Trump citing that the leadership of Obama-Biden was responsible for the closure of multiple Philadelphia fire companies.
Trump publicly thanked the union for their endorsement, calling it a “great honor.”
A GREAT HONOR, THANK YOU!! https://t.co/OpgQwAPPtV
