The World’s Largest Police Union Endorses Trump

posted on September 21, 2016

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), representing 330,000 police officers, has officially endorsed Donald J. Trump for president.

Trump returned the FOP’s 12-page questionnaire on time and met with FOP representatives. The Clinton campaign, on the other hand, was weeks late returning the questionnaire and did not meet with the FOP. 

“Obviously, this is an unusual election,” said FOP President Chuck Canterbury. “We have a candidate who declined to seek an endorsement and a candidate without any record as an elected official. Mr. Trump, however, has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. … 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.” 

Trump expressed strong support for the Second Amendment, a position in line with the results of PoliceOne.com’s survey of cops. FOP Executive Director Jim Pasco said Trump “made commitments to us that he would support law enforcement if he was elected, and keep our views in mind.”
