Donald Trump nets endorsement from largest police union in the country

Posted: Updated:

The National Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union, is endorsing Donald Trump for President. 

In the union's endorsement letter, union president Chuck Canterbury writes, "he understands and supports our priorities and our members believe he will make America safe again."

The union, which has nearly 330,000 members, traditionally backs Republicans, but declined in 2012 to support either President Obama or GOP nominee Mitt Romney. 

Out on the campaign trail, Trump touts himself as a law and order candidate in the 2016 campaign.

"Police are the most mistreated people in this country," Trump said at a GOP debate in January. "We have to give power back to the police because crime is rampant."
