Riverside, California Sheriff Chad Bianco announced his endorsement of former President Donald Trump shortly after he was convicted on 34 felony counts in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s controversial “hush money” case.

“You know, for the past 30 years I’ve been doing everything I could to keep our community safe by arresting criminals and putting them in jail and putting them in prison, keeping them out of our neighborhoods,” the plain-spoken sheriff said in an Instagram video. Bianco, previously considered a contender for governor of California, has been a vocal critic of current officeholder Gavin Newsom, alleging that he has allowed lawlessness to prevail in the state.

I’ve been critical of our state legislature for passing laws to make it harder to put people in prison. I’ve been critical for their changing laws that let prisoners out early. And I’ve been critical of our attorney general for seemingly not caring about crime and really being an embarrassment to law enforcement, and this love affair that our governor and our state legislature have with criminals is based on the belief that criminals are not responsible for their own actions,” he said.

They’re a victim of society and really it’s it’s our fault. It’s society’s fault; it’s business’s fault,  it’s cops’ fault. It might be my fault. Law enforcement, apparently, if you listen to our governor, is systemically racist. If you listen to our legislature our laws are systemically racist. Our judicial system is systemically racist. All of these people that are being put in jail are because of law enforcement bias and DA bias and all of these things,” he continued.

After he went on to list more of California’s soft-on-crime policies, Bianco joked that he would now “change teams.” “And I hope that you’re all with me. I hope that you all have this change of heart. You all feel that this is definitely the right thing to do and you come alongside me in this venture. And I think it’s time that instead of letting them out of jail and giving them alcohol and drugs and everything else,” Bianco said. 

I think it’s time we put a felon in the White House. Trump 2024, baby. Let’s save this country and make America great again,” he added.

The “Deliverance” and “Midnight Cowboy” actor then urged Americans to, “vote for truths, trust, honor, safety, love, respect,” before reiterating that “we must destroy these animals.”

“My fellow Americans, I witness these crimes on social media, the news. I’m here to testify for truths and for honor. The man who has this country’s best interest, Donald J. Trump, he’s the only one who can save our country from destruction,” he said.
