August 15, 2020 at 11:11 AM EDTNYC police union backs Trump; Ocasio-Cortez, others slam the moveRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Black Lives Matter activists and others blasted the authorities union representing New York Police Department officers for endorsing President Trump on Friday night.” NYPD union backed Trump. Im sure this is part of their area outreach strategy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Also, does anybody else see a prospective problem with authorities unions– enforcement arms of the state with deadly weapons– promoting preferred candidates for office or is that just me?” After the death of George Floyd and the nationwide protests versus police cruelty and racial injustice that followed, Trump often sided with law enforcement and attacked the protesters.” Im speechless. New York City is a beautifully varied, working class, democratic city,” tweeted Jamaal Bowman, the Democratic prospect who beat incumbent Rep. Eliot L. Engel in the New York Democratic primary. “The NYPD is plainly revealing they are not thinking about working with individuals of our city. This explains their continued hostility against innocent individuals. Its time for significant modification.” By Colby Itkowitz
