A month after the Kenosha Professional Police Association blasted Wisconsin's Democrat Gov. Tony Evers for fanning the flames of anti-police hostility in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting, the riot-ravaged city's sheriff has authored an opinion article for the USA Today endorsing President Trump for reelection.

Praising the "support, gratitude, and steadfast resolve" Trump has for law enforcement, Sheriff David Beth credited the president for providing "critical resources needed" to protect the people of Kenosha.

"When the violence began, we had immediately put in the call to have local and state resources respond to the situation," Beth wrote. "Many responded, but we still needed more help. This is where the president stepped up and offered us the full resources of the federal government.

'Whatever you need, it's coming,' the president relayed to me," Beth said.

Beth added that while he does not always agree with everything the president says or tweets, he is one of 38 other Wisconsin sheriffs who have endorsed Trump.
