After Donald Trump posted a video with about a dozen San Antonio police officers – all in uniform and wearing his patented red “Make America Great Again” baseball caps – people are wondering if any laws were broken.
The department’s chief says yes.
“Thank you Texas! If you haven’t registered to VOTE- today is your last day,” Trump said in a tweet that included the video.
The video shows police officers huddling around Trump while taking pictures.
“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.”
