Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona has earned the reputation of being “America’s Toughest Sheriff” because he’s never afraid to speak out about his conservative views.
Because of his popularity in the conservative world, the GOP presidential candidates have been fighting for his endorsement for months now. Less than a week before the Iowa caucuses, Arpaio has finally revealed who he is endorsing, and it has come as a surprise to some.
“Donald Trump is a leader. He produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families. I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration, and I know Donald Trump will stand with me and countless Americans to secure our border. I am proud to support him as the best candidate for president of the United States of America.”
Trump was quick to thank the sheriff for his endorsement.
“I have great respect for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump responded. “We must restore law and order and respect the men and women of our police forces. I thank him for his support of my policies and candidacy for president.”
