Republicans and Democrats split sharply along party lines in response to President Donald Trump's pardon Friday night of Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been convicted of defying a court order to cease focusing on Latinos in traffic stops. Arpaio was known nationally for his tough stance on crime and especially illegal immigration - and was an early adopter of unfounded "birther" conspiracy theories about former President Barack Obama's birthplace, aligning him closely with Trump.

But now, after he lost last year's reelection bid and following the criminal contempt conviction - now moot because of Friday's pardon - Arpaio finds himself with nothing to fall back on.

"The main thing I would want to do is help the president, " he said. And it overturned what critics saw as a long-awaited comeuppance for a lawman who long escaped accountability for his use of headline-grabbing tactics as sheriff in Phoenix.

"I stand by my pardon of Sheriff Joe", Trump told reporters Monday. But pressed by interviewer Chris Wallace as to whether Trump shared those values, Tillerson replied: "The president speaks for himself".

According to Justice Department statistics, as of August 7 Trump had received 376 requests for pardons pending and 1,508 requests for commutation, a reduction of a prison sentence a person is now serving.

Asked at a White House news conference about broad criticism of the pardon, including from some in his own party, Trump said Arpaio had not been treated fairly, and he criticized previous USA presidents for pardons and commutations of their own.

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has recently sparked backlash from Trump, also criticized Trump. President George W. Bush pardoned 189 people and commuted 11 sentences.


Arpaio says his pardon shows that Trump is a "big supporter of law enforcement", the outlet stated.

Asked about that characterization, Bossert said: "I think you'll have to ask the president how he wanted to parse" the march participants.

President Trump speaks during a news conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, on August 28, 2017, at the White House. The president also pointed to Clinton's decision to commute the sentence of convicted drug trafficker Carlos Vignali.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto, Trump defended the pardon by bringing up other controversial people Democratic presidents pardoned, including Marc Rich, whom President Bill Clinton pardoned after Rich was indicted on tax evasion charges.

The White House's Friday announcement came as Hurricane Harvey threatened to batter Texas with heavy winds and severe flooding and shortly after the administration outlined long-awaited details of Trump's plan to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military.

Trump called Manning a "criminal leaker" at his news conference. "I've got support. I know what support I have".
