Joe Arpaio, the former Maricopa County Sheriff convicted of criminal contempt last year in a racial profiling case, is keeping his calendar open in case President Donald Trump decides to pardon him, he told Politico Monday.

"I've been doing rallies with him many, many times, and sometimes things are done the last minute," he said.

Trump is scheduled to be in Phoenix on Tuesday for a campaign-style rally. He told Fox News last week he was "seriously considering" pardoning Arpaio, who faces a maximum of six months in jail for defying a federal court's order to cease and desist rounding up illegal immigrants.

Arpaio, 85, is a big Trump supporter who has said he would accept a pardon but would not ask for one.

"I don't expect anything in return from the president, but I think he understands that this is a travesty, and he's just trying to correct it, doing the right thing, and he has the courage and the guts to do it," Arpaio told guest host Rita Cosby last Monday on "The Schnitt Show."
