The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) announced it is endorsing President Trump on Friday and praised him for his calls for law and order.
“Public safety will undoubtedly be a main focus for voters in this year’s election,” FOP President Patrick Yoes said in a statement. “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.”
Trump has made law and order and support for the police a main focus of his reelection campaign, the Hill reports. The FOP said it sent a questionnaire to both Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden and received responses from both campaigns in mid-July.
The FOP, which has over 355,000 members, endorsed Trump in 2016. It said that then Democratic nominee Hilary Clinton's campaign did not seek the endorsement and did not return the union's questionnaire.
