CLEVELAND - A Cleveland city councilman is criticizing the Cleveland Police Patrolman's Association's decision to endorse Donald Trump for president.

Zachary Reed introduced a resolution at council Monday evening asking for the union to rescind the endorsement.

Reed stated that he felt more compelled than ever to introduce the resolution in light of the recently released video in which Trump is heard making demeaning comments about women.

But Reed adds that his real motivation isn't about party politics. He is worried that the endorsement could harm the reform that the Cleveland Police Department is currently undergoing.

Fox 8 spoke to the CPPA's president, Steve Loomis, who had no comment about the resolution. The union voted overwhelmingly last month to endorse Trump over Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
