PHOENIX (ALBOENEWS) — Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton released a statement Wednesday announcing his disappointment in Donald Trump’s decision to hold a campaign rally in Phoenix this coming week.
The Mayor expresses that the nation is still healing from the events in Charlottesville, and if the President’s intent was to announce a pardon for Joe Arpaio, “it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide our nation.”
He then expressed hope that the President would reconsider. The full statement below:
