San Antonio Police Chief William McManus announced that nearly two dozen officers will be disciplined for wearing Donald Trump campaign hats while helping with security at a Trump campaign rally last week.
McManus said in a statement that the officers violated departmental and city policy and exercised "poor judgment" in wearing the hats while on official, uniformed duty.

"I have met personally with the involved offices and the following correction action will be taken: six supervisors will be issued a written reprimand and seventeen officers will be provided written counseling," McManus' statement read.
"In addition, as part of the corrective action, the officers involved with receive training this month that will focus on the importance of impartiality and fairness in performance of officials duties."
The officers from the motorcycle unit escorted Trump from the airport to a campaign event last week. The hats were passed around to the officers by campaign staffers.
Trump then shared a video (above) of himself with the officers, encouraging Texans to register to vote. The city attorney reportedly sent a letter to the campaign asking for the Twitter video to be removed.
