Arpaio: 'No idea' if Trump will pardon me

Trump is coming back to Arizona at another crucial moment in his presidency.

Large protests could greet President Donald Trump on Tuesday when he travels to Arizona for his first campaign rally since he caused an uproar with his remarks about a white nationalist demonstration in Virginia.

Democrats on Monday slammed the prospect of President Trump granting a pardon to former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, saying it would mark a win for "white supremacy" and set the stage for the commander-in-chief to use his constitutional power to keep his family out of legal trouble. Trump has encourages Ward to run against incumbent Senator Jeff Flake, one of the first prominent, sitting elected Republican's to rebuke Trump for some of his stands and actions.

Trump told Fox News, "I am seriously thinking about it".

"If the president himself is supporting a challenger to Jeff, it's a serious problem", said Coughlin, who has been polling voters about the intra-party turmoil that has unsettled the race.

Arpaio told ABC News he has not been invited to Trump's campaign rally. All three states narrowly supported Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton, providing him with a combined 46 electoral votes that propelled him to victory.

"I am fully confident that we have the right team in place to make that happen", Mayor Greg Stanton said, flanked by local law enforcement leaders.

Some White House officials privately expressed concern on Monday that Trump might revisit the Charlottesville issue when cheered on by thousands of supporters at the rally.

Ward will be in attendance at the rally but her campaign declined to say whether an official endorsement by President Trump is expected. He could face six months in prison at sentencing in October.

McCain won his own primary election against Ward past year by more than 11 percentage points, and went on to beat the Democrat in the general election by 13 points, even after he broke with Trump in the month before the election and refused to vote for him.

"He has protected people from crimes and saved lives", Trump insisted.

OH Predictive Insights, a subsidiary of Phoenix-based Owens Harkey Advertising, produced the poll about how Arizona residents view of a possible pardon of Arpaio. Com, Daniel Scarpinato, spokesman of the Republican governor, wrote a statement to the Republic Party of the state, saying that Ducey would skip the rally and work with law enforcement "toward a safe event in downtown Phoenix for all those involved and in the area".

Ward, a physician who drew only 39 percent of the vote in a primary fight against McCain a year ago, is seen as a longshot by top Arizona Republicans.

Gallego is anxious that Trump will go through with it because "he knows the white nationalists are really pissed off because he just fired the head white nationalist in Steve Bannon".

It's unclear what Trump will do in the Arpaio case - but he's already revived what had been a declining 287 (g) program - though all current such partnerships are limited to jail-based reviews of ICE databases and do not involve patrol officers.
