Officer could be suspended for wearing Trump mask in uniform

A Miami police officer could face suspension after he was photographed wearing a Trump face mask inside an early voting site.

Miami-Dade County Democratic Chairman Steve Simeonidis tweeted Tuesday a photo of the officer wearing a blue, white and red Trump 2020 mask.

“This is city-funded voter intimidation,” Simeonidis tweeted.

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez said the officer would be disciplined and said a suspension was a possibility.

“Officers have a responsibility … to protect our residents and they have to do that in an impartial manner and they can’t be making political statements or making political stances while they are wearing a uniform,” Suarez said.
