Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Major police lobbying group endorses Trump’s re-election bid, despite backing Obama-Biden ticket in 2012”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) – a lobby group representing some 2,000 police units and unions, as well as hundreds of thousands of officers – handed its endorsement to Trump on Wednesday evening, citing his “steadfast and very public support” for law enforcement.

“We particularly value your directing the Attorney General to aggressively prosecute those who attack our officers,” the group added, referring to Trump’s response to a spate of mass protests over police brutality kicked off in May, many of which have devolved into violent clashes between demonstrators and police.

NAPO is pleased to support your re-election campaign for president, and we are confident of your continued strong support of America’s law enforcement community.

While NAPO endorsed Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 presidential runs – and Biden as VP in the process – the organization has since soured on the career politician, with NAPO’s executive director Bill Johnson explaining that Biden had shifted too far to the political left and abandoned much of his previous support for police.
