In the 8 years since President Barack Obama has been in the White House, things have become more dangerous for police officers.
But Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump has made it clear that he supports the police! When Hillary Clinton is counting on increased racial tension to turn out voters, Trump is standing behind cops… and they know it!
That’s why the police officers in Colorado noticed, along with others. Trump is picking up critical endorsements:
The Denver Police Protective Association (DPPA), the Aurora Police Association (APA) and the Colorado Springs Police Protective Association (CSPPA) announced Monday, agreeing that Donald Trump’s support for law enforcement will ensure safer communities.
“After thoughtful consideration, we wholeheartedly believe Mr. Trump is the only candidate that will protect law-abiding citizens from those who choose to break the law,” Nick Rogers, president of the DPPA said, according to the Denver Post.
“The Aurora Police Association believes that Donald Trump’s strong support for law enforcement will ensure safer communities in Colorado and across our country,” Sgt. Bob Wesner, president of the APA said, according to the Aurora Sentinel.
Together, the three police unions represent about 2,700 members of the law enforcement community in the battleground state of Colorado. Recent polling places Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with a slight lead over Trump, but the Republican nominee sees the purple state as attainable, confirmed by the fact that Trump just visited the Rocky Mountain state Monday.
Fantastic news! The Colorado media has been heavily skewed against Trump, but these endorsements will help him in a big way.
There are two debates left, and we can count on Trump standing firm with our police officers. Cops deserve respect for what they do everyday, and we should only vote for candidates who support cops.
