.@POTUS pardon of fellow birther Arpaio makes mockery of rule of law, & says communities of color can be targeted & abused w/ total impunity

President Trump’s pardoning of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is yet another reprehensible endorsement of hatred & bigotry from this White House https://t.co/CwtHpyDF4O

Pardoning Arpaio is the latest instance of how @realDonaldTrump's words and actions empower racists and white supremacists.
