Furious Phoenix officials published a letter to Donald Trump on Thursday night, demanding his campaign ad showing city police officers be taken down immediately.
The ad, titled “Movement,” shows Trump meeting with a number of people, including police. The Phoenix cops in the promotion had no idea they were being filmed, Phoenix City Attorney Brad Holm said, NBC News reported.
Holm condemned the video, writing in the letter that the ad “unmistakably and wrongfully suggests that Phoenix and the officers support or endorse Mr. Trump’s campaign.”
While the National Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the country, endorsed Trump’s campaign, it is illegal for individuals in public service positions at the local, state and federal level to engage in political activities of any kind.
