You're forgiven: Trump to pardon 'racial profiler' Arpaio

Donald Trump is joined onstage by then Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at a campaign rally in Marshalltown Iowa

Dissent for the current president is not unusual on Twitter - but what is unusual is a retweet from a high profile user who predominantly uses retweets as a form of endorsement.

The "Fox & Friends" story was about Trump "seriously considering" a pardon for former-Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Trump, who deleted his retweet without explanation, has called Arpaio a "great American patriot".

The President, who often shares posts from media outlets he approves of and from his supporters, seemed to realise his mistake, deleting his retweet around 15 minutes after sharing.

Arpaio is best known for his role as sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, a position he was elected to hold.

On Monday, Donald Trump was dragged kicking and screaming in front of news camera to reluctantly denounce racism in the United States.

The president and Arpaio do have a history of mutual respect.

Lavrov's upbeat assessment came amid what the USA has called a diplomatic low point unseen since the end of the Cold War. Both President Trump and Russian officials have remarked that U.S. -Russia relations have deteriorated to historic lows.

Arpaio announced his support for President Trump in January 2016 during the hotly contested Republican primary for the party's presidential nomination.

Reportedly, Trump will decide whether or not to pardon Arpaio in the next few days. Arpiao admitted running special patrols targeting Hispanic drivers for more than 17 months after a federal judge ordered him to stop.

Let's be honest: at this point, we're all pretty accustomed to President Donald Trump's early morning tweets. Because he was convicted of criminal contempt only weeks before Trump made the pardon comments, in a clash between the sheriff and court system on immigration questions.

"I've been with him from day one", Arpaio said. It wasn't clear whether Holden was talking about Trump or Arpaio.

The self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff in America", Arpaio served in the U.S. Army from 1950 to 1954 as part of the Medical Detachment Division during the Korean War.

"Is there anyone in local law enforcement who has done more to crack down on illegal immigration then Sheriff Joe?" asked Trump rhetorically.

His Democratic successor, Sheriff Paul Penzone, pledged to close the "Tent City" jail, in which Arpaio housed inmates outdoors in the scorching Arizona heat.
