Gutierrez said the party is hoping they don't hear a message similar to what Trump delivered in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The six-term sheriff was convicted last month on federal contempt of court charges, after a judge said he showed "flagrant disregard" for an order to halt racial-profiling on traffic stops. Tuesday marks Trump's first visit to Arizona as president. He was, though, a passionate supporter of Trump's successful run for the White House.
"Tuesday will be hard day for city and law enforcers who keep everyone safe", said Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.
Mayor Greg Stanton said he is convinced there are sufficient resources, including staff, to deal with having tens of thousands of people downtown.
Trump is scheduled to visit a Marine Corps base along the U.S. -Mexico border before flying to Phoenix for his 7 p.m. rally at the Phoenix Convention Center. Arpaio questioned the authenticity of former President Barack Obama's birth certificate for more than five years and even sent a deputy along with a volunteer to Hawaii to question officials.
Gov. Doug Ducey, a Trump supporter, will greet him as he arrives in Phoenix but will not attend the rally to focus on safety needs, his spokesman said.
But Stanton made it clear that, everything else being equal, he wished that Trump would not be coming for a campaign-style rally - at least not now on the heels of Charlottesville.
Here's a list of what you can't bring inside the rally if you are attending.
Adding to it, Trump told Fox News he was "seriously considering" pardoning former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Neither Sen. Jeff Flake nor Sen.
Lines said he doesn't know whether Trump will pardon Arpaio and won't speculate. That process, as HuffPost previously reported, was established largely to de-politicize the issuing of pardons and, in some cases, to provide legal support for the president's pardoning decisions. Multiple demonstrations are planned for Trump's visit to Phoenix, including protests with titles such as "No hate in our streets" and "Protest and resist the dictator".
Here in the shebeen, we will deal with whatever the president* says about Afghanistan on Tuesday because, unless he's planning to disentangle this country from that one, it's likely to be another "surge" that extends this country's longest war a little bit longer.
He served as the sheriff for 24 years and was not reelected last November.
Trump becomes the third USA president to put his imprint on the 16-year war in Afghanistan, as he revealed his plans to shape the future of the American war effort and broader regional strategy.
