SNUBBED: Police Union Shocked By Clinton’s Response

When it comes to Hillary Clinton and Democrats in general, it seems that Blue Lives don’t matter much. Mrs. Clinton, who wants to be leader of the free world, has ignored the FOP’s request to complete a questionnaire necessary to seek their endorsement. She apparently believes she does not need their endorsement. Read on for details.

From TheBlaze:

Officials at the largest police union in the U.S. are “shocked” by a perceived snub by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as her campaign declined to seek its endorsement.

The National Fraternal Order of Police will not be meeting with Clinton’s campaign to discuss an endorsement as her campaign decided not to return a lengthy questionnaire disseminated by the police union at the last minute, the union’s leader told The Hill.

“It sends a powerful message. To be honest with you, I was disappointed and shocked,” Chuck Canterbury, president of the National Fraternal Order of Police, told The Hill. “You would think with law enforcement issues so much in the news that even if she had disagreements with our positions, that she would’ve been willing to say that.”

Canterbury said the Fraternal Order of Police and the Clinton campaign had been in discussions leading up to the questionnaire’s deadline. The questionnaire is required by the union of all candidates who seek its endorsement.

“We were talking to the highest levels of the campaign, and we had all indications that she was going to return the questionnaire,” he said.

But then on the day of the deadline, Clinton’s campaign decided to decline.

“Candidly, we were very disappointed,” Pasco said of the Clinton campaign’s refusal to seek the union’s endorsement. “And the idea that a presidential candidate would not want to at least talk to an organization that represents almost half of the police officers in the United States and is a thought leader in the public sphere … is very disappointing.”

Now the Fraternal Order of Police is meeting with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his campaign, the union said. Trump met with officials of the union Friday.

Of course the FOP is now meeting with Trump. Trump understands how important law enforcement is to the security and safety of our nation. So go ahead and snub the FOP, Mrs. Clinton, Trump is happy to grab that opportunity.
