When President Donald Trump makes a promise, he keeps it.

Now, we know why Trump said at his Arizona rally that Sheriff Joe Arpaio, after his conviction would be OK. He has officially pardoned Arpaio!

After years of harassment from the Obama administration, this is incredible:

President Donald Trump gave a presidential pardon to Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday evening.

The 85-year-old former Maricopa County sheriff was convicted of criminal contempt after violating a judge’s order in an immigration case. It was a misdemeanor charge carrying a six-month jail sentence.

The White House press office praised Arpaio’s years of public service, saying “he is a worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.”
