Trump Lamabasted on Sheriff Joe Pardon
There has been a lot of criticism on Capitol Hill towards President Trump on his pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.Senator Blumenthal tweeted the following. "Under cover of hurricane and Friday night darkness, Trump pardons Arpaio and flouts rule of law - already producing backlash." Senator Chuck Shumer also tweeted. "As millions of people in TX and LA are prepping for the hurricane, the President is using the cover of the storm to 1/ Pardon a man who violated a court's order to stop discriminating against Latinos and 2/".
The quote from Senator Chris Murphy was quite scathing, "The Arpaio pardon is basically a big middle finger to America. A loud, proud declaration that this Administration supports racism."
