The New York City Police Benevolent Association formally endorsed President Trump re-election bid Friday evening, praising the law and order president for his “strong voice” supporting our New York’s finest and police officers across the nation.
“I have 36 years in this job, 21 as a president of this fine organization. I cannot remember when we’ve ever endorsed for the office of President of the United States, until now — that’s how important this is,” PBA President Pat Lynch said while presenting Trump a bronze statue of a police officer with one hand on the shoulder of a child and the other holding the flag. “We need your strong voice across the country to say we have the support of law enforcement across this country.”
“Mr. President, we are fighting for our lives out there. We don’t want this to spread to the rest of this country,” Lynch added. “Now, many times people say that a union like ours, law enforcement group, gives endorsements. Not in the New York City PBA, sir. In the New York City PBA, Mr. President, you earn the endorsement and you’ve earned this endorsement. I’m proud to give it,” Lynch added.
