Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden used to get votes by posing as a “middle-class Joe” to appeal to blue-collar voters.
As the election day draws closer though, it’s becoming very apparent that Biden is shedding these voters at a record pace. Biden just got the devastating news that another major police union has endorsed Donald Trump — and this one’s in a swing state.
Biden has stopped short of joining the chorus of leftists voices calling to defund the police, but has repeatedly voiced his support for “redirecting” police funds to other programs — which is still defunding the police.
While President Trump regularly calls upon the nation to respect and support law enforcement officers, Biden consistently sides with anti-police protesters.
Biden has clearly given up on courting Americans that live outside of Biden’s elitist bubble, and The Police Officers Association of Michigan’s powerful statement in support of Trump is proof that Biden has lost his “average Joe” appeal.
“President Trump never fails to recognize our homeland’s security personnel at home and abroad,” said the labor organization’s president, James Tignanelli, in a statement this week. “He supports the police while the previous administration preferred to insult them or to find them guilty without due process.”
“At a time when civic leaders are choosing to tolerate televised felonies because a group of people are ‘offended,’ we need real leadership,” Tiganelli continued.
Detroit News noted on Thursday that, “At the state level, the Police Officers Association of Michigan has one of the most active political action committees connected to law enforcement.”
