    Nation's largest police union endorses Trump

    September 16, 2016
    By Ben Kamisar

    The nation's largest police union on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for president, lauding his commitment to police officers.

    The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) gave the GOP presidential nominee its endorsement after he received support from more than two-thirds of the group's national board.

    "[Trump] has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again," said Chuck Canterbury, the FOP's national president.

    "He's made a real commitment to America's law enforcement and we're proud to make a commitment to him and his campaign by endorsing his candidacy today."

    With labor groups overwhelmingly behind Clinton, Trump made an aggressive play for support from the police union.

    He met with top officials from the FOP at Trump Tower in May, and he has made stops on the campaign trail at the union's local chapters.

    "I'm on your side 1,000 percent," Trump told an FOP chapter in North Carolina in August. "What you do is incredible."

    The FOP had expressed anger at Trump's rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, for declining to fill out a questionnaire necessary to win the group's endorsement.

    The group characterized Clinton's refusal as a snub, and Canterbury referenced it in his statement Friday.

    "Obviously this is an unusual election. We have a candidate who declined to seek an endorsement and a candidate without any record as an elected official," he said.

    "Donald Trump may not ever have been elected to public [office] but he is a proven leader and that's what we need for the next four years — a leader unafraid to make tough choices and see them through."

    Trump has made "law and order" part of his campaign message while portraying Clinton as not supportive of law enforcement. Clinton has fought back against that charge with the help of officials like outgoing New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton.

    The FOP did not endorse a presidential candidate in 2012 after backing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008. The group has not endorsed a Democratic presidential nominee since Bill Clinton in 1996.

    Great support from The Police and the Border Patrol. They recognize lawlessness from this administration and its threat to the United States.

    Philly Fraternal Order of Police: Hillary Clinton ‘Disregarded and Blew the Police off’

    The Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police president John McNesby is criticizing Hillary Clinton for not seeking his organization’s endorsement.

    “They didn’t care. Their attitude, then, back in July, during the DNC, was they were going to win this thing anyway, so who cares? Now, I think the tides have turned a little bit and she’s on her heels,” McNesby told Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, discussing his organizations endorsement. “As many times as we’ve tried to…have it a fair process and an open process, the emails back were that they’re not interested and no thanks. Just snide things like that.”

    The National Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Trump last week.

    McNesby continued:

    "We’re falling in line with the national FOP and, basically, she just disregarded and blew the police off. You can’t go in and expect to get respect when you didn’t give it to us. We gave a very fair process, we thought. We put out a questionnaire and she absolutely refused…outright refused, with a nasty campaign rebuttal to why she wouldn’t. Simple as that, we went in and we participated with the candidate that cooperated. He filled it out. We met with him."

I hope the citizens of Philadelphia follow suit and support Donald Trump for President to make our country and cities great and safe again and put our poor beleaguered country on a new path in a new direction that benefits not only the sovereignty and integrity of our nation, but enriches and improves the lives of all of our citizens.
