The president has been holding campaign-style events in Trump-friendly areas since he took office.
"If President Trump is coming to Phoenix to announce a pardon for former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the it will be clear that his true intent is to enflame emotions and further divide our nation", Stanton wrote.

President Donald Trump will hold a rally in Phoenix next week, his campaign announced Wednesday.

Trump's announcement of an August 22 rally at the Phoenix Convention Center didn't mention Arpaio, but it immediately renewed speculation that he might use the event to pardon the controversial former sheriff who became famous for his tough stance on illegal immigration.
Arpaio "has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration", Trump said. Trump told Fox News. "He doesn't deserve to be treated this way".
Hyundai teases next-generation fuel cell SUV…
Hyundai will reveal the new hydrogen SUV early next year in Korea, followed by the North American and European markets. Forget electricity for the moment, Hyundai are prepping an SUV powered by hydrogen and emits nothing but water.

"In preparation for this event", he concluded, "my focus and that of the Phoenix Police Department is on keeping everyone - those attending the rally, those expressing their First Amendment rights outside and the general public - safe".
Trump has recently been visiting states where he has strong support. But perhaps he should listen to Mayor Stanton.

Tickets to Trump's rally are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to two tickets per person.
The Tucson Democrat called Trump "unhinged" following the president's comments about the violence in Charlottesville.
