Trump Invokes Clinton And Obama To Defend Pardoning Arpaio

Not the same as the convicted sheriff

"I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally". "He's very strong on borders, very strong on illegal immigration", Trump said at a press conference on Monday afternoon, justifying his pardon of the controversial sheriff who was convicted of criminal contempt last month. John McCain among other Republicans, but Trump pointed to a boisterous rally in Arizona last week as evidence that the people of Arizona stand with him.

"I thought he was treated unbelievably unfairly", Mr. Trump said during a joint news conference with President Sauli Niinisto of Finland in the East Room of the White House. "The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions".

Donald Trump has strongly hinted at a pardon for controversial former Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

"Sheriff Joe loves our country", he said. Arpaio's officers called Latinos "wetbacks", "Mexican bitches", "fucking Mexicans" and "stupid Mexicans", the Justice Department found, and Latino drivers were four to nine times as likely to be stopped by his officers as non-Latino drivers were.

Trump described Apaio as "loved in Arizona" despite the fact that only 21 percent of state residents approved of his pardon.

Trump read through a list of pardons made by presidents Clinton and Obama, including Marc Rich and Chelsea Manning.

Hurricane Harvey may not have wreaked absolute havoc as a storm, but the aftermath it left behind is awful for the state of Texas. So we can assume the stark message above was intended for people who did not leave in the face of the warning.

But the 85-year-old Arpaio told Newsmax the reports of him challenging Flake are overblown. I think it's a good thing if we have great relationships, or at least good relationships, with Russian Federation.

"One way or the other Mexico will pay for the wall", Trump said, arguing that, while the project may initially be funded by United States taxpayers, "ultimately" Mexico will pay.

Over the weekend, Trump shared a tweet from Fox News journalist Katie Pavlich which stated that Obama pardoned Manning. "Commuted the sentence and perhaps pardoned", he said.

"It's not just TV, it's elected officials", Arpaio explained to The Arizona Republic on Monday.

"The place went absolutely insane when I was in Arizona last week", Mr Trump said in reference to the roaring approval when he floated pardoning Mr Arpaio during a campaign-style rally in Phoenix last week.
