PHOENIX -

President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted for intentionally disobeying a judge's order in an immigration case.

The White House said the 85-year-old ex-sheriff of Arizona's Maricopa County was a "worthy candidate" for a presidential pardon.

Arizona leaders, and the former sheriff himself, turned to Twitter on Friday afternoon to speak out about the decision.
