Trump Endorsed By Florida’s Largest Police Union

The largest police union in Florida announced the presidential candidate it will be endorsing in the general election in November. During an announcement on Thursday, Florida Police Benevolent Association President John Kazanjian asked members of the association to vote for President Donald Trump.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Kazanjian said, “It’s no secret that over the past four years, under the current administration, America has regressed. Law enforcement officers are leaving their jobs in record numbers throughout this country, crime is rising in our major cities, and over 8 million migrants have entered this country, putting a heavy and untenable strain on the ability of local municipalities to effectively maintain public safety and provide essential services to the citizens of this country.”

“Moving forward, we will ask all of our 30,000 members, their friends and family, and all Floridians, who love and respect law enforcement, to cast their ballots in support of President Donald J. Trump. Together we’ll make America great again,” he added.

The union initially endorsed the state’s Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential bid before he eventually dropped out after the Iowa Republican caucuses in January.

When it endorsed DeSantis in June, Kazanjian referred to him as the “most effective governor in the nation” who will “make public safety a top priority in the White House.”

Calling the Republican governor the “one candidate for president who has a proven track record in enhancing public safety and investing in the essential men and women who help maintain public safety every day,” the union leader added, “For the over 30,000 men and women in the Florida Police Benevolent Association, the choice for us could not be clearer.”

In the 2020 election, the FBP had endorsed Trump, emphasizing how Trump had been there for the union and supported it.

“I got a motion to endorse President Donald Trump for this 2020 presidential election. Not only the 30,000 votes that we had from the members in Florida. Don’t forget about our friends and families, retirees .. I believe the last cycle, we also put the president on top and guess what? We’re going to come out in force this time to put the president on top,” Kazanjian said at the time.
