NYC police union issues historic endorsement for Donald Trump

President Trump just received a historic endorsement from The New York City Police Benevolent Association, a union representing 24,000 officers in the embattled city. 

The police union president, Patrick Lynch, said on Friday that he “cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the president of the United States until now,” citing the astonishing attacks on the city’s police department for the organization’s decision.

“I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the president of the United States until now,” Lynch said at Trump’s club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Friday. “That’s how important this is. …. Mr. President, we’re fighting for our lives out there. We don’t want this to spread to the country, we need your strong voice across the country.”

New York City’s police officers have been under extreme duress for months, beginning with the COVID-19 pandemic. In late March, New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot told NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan that she doesn’t ” give two rats’ asses about your cops” after he relayed an urgent request for 500,000 masks for his officers.

As a result of the New York City’s health department’s dismissal of the concerns about the safety of the city’s officers, the city’s police department experienced 5,490 cases of COVID-19, and 41 virus-related deaths.

After the virus ripped through the city, protest-turned-riots dealt another blow to New York’s finest, with city leadership again refusing to back its law enforcement officers.

President Trump noted in his speech accepting the union’s endorsement that, “As we gather today, our country is suffering from a radical far-left movement” in which Democrats want to “defame, demoralize, defund, dismantle, and dissolve our great police departments.”

Trump pointed to accounts of “left-wing mobs” vandalizing the city, destroying police cars, and attacking and beating police officers for weeks as proof of the “left-wing war on cops” that Democrats have backed and will continue to back under the Biden administration.

Lynch thanked Trump for his speech and support of the city’s cops: “The sign of a leader is someone who will stand at a podium like this and speak the truth and will say what needs to be said and will not be afraid to do it.”

    1. Trump is for the constitution,freedom, law and order and the economy for all citizens and the left is for hatred,divide and concur.rule the country as a slave labor force and control our freedoms and limit our income as they continue doing business with communist countries and build their type of police force.

  4. Thank you President Trump and to All the police out there who put their life on the line each and every day and for endorsing Our President. We can’t let the far left democrats win . I’ve even noticed some of the Democrat mayors are starting to wake up and realize that these protests aren’t all just peaceful and I think they ( the protesters) have now lost their privilege to walk the streets at the very first riot, looting, shooting, burning, murdering, etc… they have destroyed America and someone MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

  5. I am so proud of our President. I support you 100%. We need you more now than ever. Only you can Fix the mess that the Democrats are creating. Only you can build our economy again as you were doing before the China virus was released on us to take us down. We all need you President Trump. I’m praying for you.

  7. We should pray for the President and the country. The turmoil we are having now is short lived. We have to stay fear free because all mighty God is going to protect President Trump and prayer warriors. We will get through the turmoil if we have faith in God and President Donald J. Trump.

  8. I’m so very proud if pres Trump and VP Pence. They are both mighty warriors! Praying daily for both and their families.
    God gave the USA a second chance with Pres Trump. We MUST VOTE him back in. Go Trump 2020!!

  9. What should be expected.?? The president “backs the blue” and the democrats, Biden included, has screwed law enforcement every way they can.

  10. I support Trump and Pence 100%. But, when we have people who would rather live off the taxpayer as promised by dunpo_craps, we will have nothing but trouble. Unverified mail-in ballots will be a problem. All the freebies offered by the marxist liberal left is a problem. I see it first hand. People want to stay home and make babies while collecting more in government hand-out than their regular 40-hour pay. Some seem to think this $600 a week free money will continue forever and seem to think since they stayed home the employer should pay them the 40 hour salary as well. Yet, they will climb in their car and wait in line for hours for a free food box and complain that it is not enough or not what they like. I had one guy offer to sell me his food box! Americans have become lazy with the attitude some one owes them something except for those who want nothing but to work standing on their own two feet. Other words, the taxpayers!
