The National Fraternal Order of Police, a 330,000-member union of law enforcement officers, has endorsed Donald Trump for president, reports Buzzfeed.
“Our members believe he will make America safe again,” FOP President Chuck Canterbury said in a statement. Trump “seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today” and “understands and supports our priorities.”
Donald Trump met with the union in August to seek their endorsement and filled out a survey on their issues. Hillary Clinton did not seek the union’s endorsement, according to the statement.
Within organized labor, two other unions have formally endorsed Donald Trump: the National Border Patrol Council, which represents 16,500 border patrol agents, and the New England Police Benevolent Association, which has 5,000 members across Massachusetts and New Hampshire. But polls and door-knocking by independent labor group Working America have pointed to broader support among rank-and-file union members, especially white men without college degrees.
