FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 1, 2020
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) President Ann Schockett congratulated President Donald Trump on receiving more than a dozen endorsements from law enforcement organizations - including the highly sought-after Fraternal Order of Police. This is of particular interest following the first presidential debate, in which law and order issues were heatedly discussed.
“Since day one President Trump has been nothing but supportive of our nation’s law enforcement officers and first responders,” Schockett said. “He understands and appreciates the challenges and risks faced by these officers every day in order to keep our communities safe.”
During the debate, Joe Biden could not name a single law enforcement organization that backs his bid for the presidency. He also denied the existence of Antifa, one of the principal organizers behind the civil unrest. His campaign has been reportedly trying to distance themselves from those who call for a defunding of the police.
“While Democrat mayors and governors have allowed the mob to run rampant in cities across America, and the radical left calls for a defunding of the police, President Trump has continued to demand a return to law and order and has offered assistance to localities experiencing unrest, “ Schockett continued. “It’s interesting to note that during the debate when President Trump asked Joe Biden why he hasn’t called upon these Democrat leaders to put an end to the violence, Biden had no real answer to that question.”
The Fraternal Order of Police is the country’s oldest and largest labor organization, with a membership of over 355,000 law enforcement officers.
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest grassroots Republican women’s organization in the nation. NFRW provides a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government, and civic arenas. NFRW objectives are to recruit, train and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and protect the integrity of our electoral process.
