    President Donald Trump has voiced his support for the NYPD cop suspended for blaring ‘Trump 2020’ from the loudspeaker of his police cruiser saying, ‘Get that great officer back to work!’

    Trump shared several tweets of support for the NYPD on Tuesday and commended the unnamed officer who was suspended without pay following his boisterous endorsement of Trump in Brooklyn Saturday night.

    Trump also tweeted Tuesday: ‘New York. Vote for Trump. What (the Hell!) do you have to lose?’

    Trump’s tweet was in reply to an SBA post that praised Trump’s work in office saying: ‘Police Officers across the nation are advocating for TRUMP and rightfully so. The Democratic Party has abandoned police officers, encouraged violence and lawlessness. People are being murdered in Democratic run cities.’

    The SBA has decried the suspension of the cop in the ‘Trump 2020’ incident, while Mayor Bill de Blasio, Commissioner Dermot Shea, and Chief of Department Terrence Monahan all condemned the officer’s behavior as ‘100 percent unacceptable’, stressing cops must remain ‘apolitical’. 

    On Monday the SBA also blasted the NYPD for its hypocrisy in suspending the officer behind the ‘Trump 2020’ incident while Chief of Department Monahan took a knee with protesters during a Black Lives Matter protesters on June 1 and faced no disciplinary action.

    ‘The NYPD has a history of officers making political & outside the norm statements & ignoring it. Suspending this officer is unnecessary & way over the top,’ the SBA tweeted.

    ‘Chief of Department took a knee with protesters no disciplinary action was issued. What if the officer supported Biden?’ the SBA added.

    Trump also tweeted Tuesday: 'New York. Vote for Trump. What (the Hell!) do you have to lose?'

    The incident that sparked the suspension took place on Saturday around 9.50pm when two officers were filmed standing outside a patrol vehicle on St Paul Street in Flatbush and a man yelled at them saying: ‘F*** yourselves you f***ing fascists.’

    One of the officers was then heard through the patrol speaker saying: ‘Trump 2020. Put it on YouTube. Put it on Facebook. Trump 2020.’

    ‘Take a picture, take a picture, put it on Facebook, put it on YouTube, have some fun,’ the officer added sarcastically. 

    Brandon Hines, 34, watched the scene unfold from his apartment and his roommate recorded it.

    He said the cops started to say Trump 2020 when a pedestrian gave the cop the middle finger because their car was in the crosswalk.

    ‘We went to the window just to make sure whoever he was talking to was safe. And this is not the first time we had an issue of cops using the bullhorn in the neighborhood,’ Hines told the New York Daily News.

    ‘I’m just your average gay black guy but I’ve been stopped and frisked twice on my block. This is a predominantly black community and there is obviously that beef between cops and the community . . . It goes back a long long time.

    ‘It’s been a whole summer of this but this is the first time I heard the police officers endorsing or say they were going to be voting for Trump 2020,’ he added.

    The NYPD caught wind of the display and posted on Twitter: ‘The police officer who is under investigation for using a department vehicle’s loudspeaker for political purposes has been suspended, effective immediately.’

    Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner Shea were quick to condemn the officers’ actions.  

    ‘Let me be clear: ANY NYPD Officer pushing ANY political agenda while on duty will face consequences. We will act fast here, and this will not be tolerated,’ de Blasio tweeted Sunday afternoon. 

    Commissioner Shea blasted the incident as ‘one hundred percent unacceptable’.

    ‘Law Enforcement must remain apolitical, it is essential in our role to serve ALL New Yorkers regardless of any political beliefs. It is essential for New Yorkers to trust their Police,’ Shea said.

    The Police Benevolent Association, New York’s largest police union endorsed Trump for re-election in August.

    However the NYPD prohibits on-duty cops from ‘endorsing political candidates or publicly expressing personal views and opinions concerning the merits of any political party or candidate for office.’
