Chicago FOP Slams Superintendent for Trump Speech Snub

"He is the president of the United States. And, the reality of this is there are plenty of times I've sat listening to speeches that I didn't care for, and I certainly didn't walk out on them," Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham said.

The decision by Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to skip President Trump's upcoming address to officers is wrong and politically motivated, a police union official said Friday.

Superintendent Eddie Johnson's decision not to attend the International Association of Chiefs of Police's annual convention -- where the president is scheduled to speak next week - prompted a vote of "no confidence" from the city's Fraternal Order of Police, the union that represents thousands of officers.

Appearing on "Fox & Friends," Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham said that Johnson's decision bothered him.

"He is the president of the United States. And, the reality of this is there are plenty of times I've sat listening to speeches that I didn't care for, and I certainly didn't walk out on them," he said.
