President Trump Not Sorry About Pardoning Arizona Sheriff

He called the former Arizona sheriff a "patriot" who loves his country

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Trump is defending his decision to pardon Joe Arpaio.

Trump was asked about his controversial decision during a joint press conference with the president of Finland.

He called the former Arizona sheriff a “patriot” who loves his country.

Arpaio faced a possible jail sentence due to a federal conviction stemming from his immigration patrols.

Trump says Arpaio did a “great job for the people of Arizona” but was treated “very unfairly” by the Obama administration.

Trump adds that he stands by his pardon.
