The Democrats could long count on NAPO. But the party of destruction chose the mob and the attendant violence, rioting, looting, murder. And the election is coming down to the civilized vs. the savage.

National Association of Police Organizations endorses Trump

By Joshua Rhett Miller, NY Post, July 16, 2020 |

A coalition of police unions and associations across the country is endorsing President Trump’s re-election bid, recognizing his “steadfast and very public support” of law enforcement officers.

The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents more than 1,000 police units and associations nationwide, threw its support behind Trump in a letter released Wednesday acknowledging his “continued strong support” of cops tasked to protect Americans.

“Our endorsement recognizes your steadfast and very public support for our men and women on the front lines, especially during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by so many,” wrote the group’s president, Michael McHale.

The group also praised Trump for directing Attorney General Bill Barr to “aggressively prosecute those who attack our officers,” a reference to ongoing nationwide protests against racial injustice in the aftermath of George Floyd’s police-custody death, some of which have included violence against police officers.

The endorsement by the association — which met with Trump on Monday — comes after it did not back a candidate in the 2016 election, Fox News reports. It did, however, support former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in both the 2008 and 2012 elections.

McHale told Fox News that Trump garnered more than the two-thirds majority of votes needed among its members to secure the endorsement.

“So it’s with great pride that I announce on behalf of our National Association Police Organization our endorsement of President Donald J. Trump,” McHale said, later adding that he expects Trump to win in November while citing his signing of the Law Enforcement Mental Health and Wellness Act and other measures for the backing.

The Trump campaign, meanwhile, quickly praised the endorsement as more proof that he’s the “law and order” commander-in-chief while simultaneously attacking Biden as powerless to shore up Democrats.

“Joe Biden has done nothing to stop his party’s ‘defund the police’ movement and remains silent as police officers across the country are being attacked by violent rioters and protesters,” Bob Paduchik, the campaign’s senior advisor for law enforcement and labor unions, said in a statement.

“This endorsement for President Trump highlights that as the Law and Order President, he is defending the hardworking people who risk their own lives every day to keep our communities safe.”
