While America was talking about tearing down monuments that offend historically oppressed people, Donald Trump effectively erected yet another one.His pardon of Joe Arpaio elevated the disgraced former Maricopa County sheriff to monument status among the immigration hardliners and nationalists in Trump’s base.This erases any doubt about whether Trump meant to empower them after the violence in Charlottesville.Arpaio is their darling. Arpaio is now back on his pedestal thanks to their president.
