President Trump has been known to support some questionable people in order to further the Republican agenda. Just a few month ago, Trump endorsed GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore who had been accused of pursuing teenage girls when he was in his 30s. However, the breach of morality didn’t seem to bother Trump. The President was only interested in keeping the majority and he knew that Moore would help him with his agenda.
But when Trump pardoned racist former Arizona county Sheriff Joe Arpaio last year, the world was shocked. I mean, granted this is the same President who brought white nationalist Stephen Bannon into the White House, but still. The then-sheriff was found guilty of ignoring a court order regarding racial profiling.
During a recent interview, Arpaio offered his two-cents on how America should handle the recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Of course, the racist judge thinks the recipients, who were brought the U.S. illegally as children, should be deported to a country they have never known.
Arpaio explained during a recent interview with NPR, “When we come across these kids, or some are older than just kids, then deport them.” He added, “You deport them back to the country they came from.”
Although, the former sheriff did say that the recipients have education in the U.S. and can be “good ambassadors from the United States to their country.” The worst part of this entire calamity is that Arpaio announced he will be running for Senate in Arizona. The question is: does the racist sheriff have shot at winning? Will Trump endorse the racist former sheriff?
