While visiting San Antonio, Texas a group of police officers thought they’d show their support for GOP nominee Donald Trump by wearing his famous “Make America Great Again” hats.
But, it turns out they’re about to get a slap on the wrist for their pro-Trump gesture.

So, did the officers break any rules in doing so?
According to the department’s chief, the answer is yes.
“The officers wearing the campaign hats while in uniform violated SAPD policy and will be disciplined appropriately,” Chief William McManus wrote in a statement. “The officers displayed poor judgment. I expect them to know better than to give the appearance of endorsing a candidate while on duty and in uniform, regardless of the political campaign or the candidate.”
