“I spelled it out. What’s going on in not just in Florida but across this country that, ‘Hey, you know what, we’re getting beat up. We’re being used like a punching bag, and we’re tired of it. And President Donald Trump has been there for us. He supported us,'” Kazanjian told Fox & Friends.
Kazanjian is set to meet with Trump at the White House on Friday to discuss policing. He said the endorsement for Trump received unanimous support from the chapter leadership in the association, which has 30,000 members. Kazanjian said that he believes the endorsement could have a significant effect on the election.
“Not only the 30,000 members that we have down in Florida. Don’t forget about friends and families, retirees. Yeah, we — I believe last cycle we also put the president on top. And guess what? We’re going to come out in force this time to get him over that top,” he said.
