Donald Trump held a press conference on Friday in which he announced that he is no longer a birther and believes Barack Obama was born in the United States. Hours later, he scored an endorsement that likely meant more to him than any of his previous ones…
This could NOT have come at a better time!
The nation’s largest police union on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for president, lauding his commitment to police officers.
The Fraternal Order of Police gave the GOP presidential nominee its endorsement after he received support from more than two-thirds of the group’s national board.
“[Trump] has seriously looked at the issues facing law enforcement today. He understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again,” said Chuck Canterbury, the FOP’s national president.
“He’s made a real commitment to America’s law enforcement and we’re proud to make a commitment to him and his campaign by endorsing his candidacy today.”

Trump made an aggressive play for support of the police officers’ union after making “law and order” part of his campaign message.
The businessman met with the leaders of The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) at Trump Tower in May and has made stops on the campaign trail at the union’s local chapters. “I’m on your side 1,000 percent,” Trump told a FOP chapter in North Carolina. “What you do is incredible.”
