Donald Trump promised to pardon racist sheriff Joe Arpaio, who previously unlawfully investigated Hispanic residents without probable cause (and against the ruling of a Federal judge). Where does this leave the current administration?

Trump's sympathy for neo-nazis and racism is not new, but one can only wonder where this shall lead the U.S.A.

In this case he shows real stubbornness. He is stupid for doing this. I hope he will bow out soon.

I wont be joining the knitting circle round the guillotine just yet as I find it interesting that despite all the accusations that have been levelled at Joe Arpaio he keeps getting re-elected. Could it be that the judiciary were totally out of touch with the public and were pursuing a political agenda to placate the left wing or are things so bad in that neck of the woods that the job calls for someone like him perhaps? There is definitely more to this than the allegations levelled against him in the usual media outlets.

Joe Arpaio lost the re-election bid way back in 2016.

Any yet he has been elected six times. He must have got results or there was just no opposition. Not bad for an 86 year old!

He got convicted for "racial profiling" because he was rounding up Latinos in a region with a big illegal immigration problem. Sounds like a political arrest to me by vested interests desperate to remove him from office.
