Among all the chaos going on this weekend in Charlottesville, President Donald Trump has taken to twitter to address other issues.
As we all know, the 45th president is a big follower of FOX News so it's not suprising when he retweets their stories. But on Tuesday, he retweeted a story they released about a proposed pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio. The ex-sheriff was found guilty of criminal contempt earlier this year after defying a judge's order to stop his immigration patrol policies. He was stripped of his title as sheriff because his policies were made up of extreme racial profiling.
While the president had a hard time finding the words to address the issues in Virginia, he did not forget to mention that he was "seriously considering" a pardon of the criminalized sheriff. Arpaio has long-supported Trump throughout his candidacy and now presidency. – perhaps their friendship is held more important. Judging by his recent retweet below, 45 may still be pondering that pardon of his supporter.

Whether or not the pardon of this criminal is really happening is up in the air, but hopefully the presidet has his priorities straight.
