SAN ANTONIO (AP) — San Antonio's police chief promises disciplinary action for more than a dozen officers seen in a Donald Trump campaign video wearing "Make America Great Again" caps while in uniform, violating city policy.

In a statement posted to the city Twitter account, Chief William McManus said the officers "displayed poor judgment" and "will be disciplined appropriately." He mentioned no specifics.

The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/2e5yrRj) reports a video on Trump's Twitter account shows at least 14 members of his motorcycle escort wearing the caps after returning Trump to San Antonio International Airport from a Tuesday fundraiser. In the 25-second video, Trump is heard saying to the officers wearing his signature red caps, "Thank you, fellas." Several officers thanked the Republican presidential nominee in return and gave him a thumbs-up sign.
