Biden seeks to defund the police and move money to other resources to do the job the police was doing ? What does Biden support? The media – in this case Chris Wallace — distorts everything that comes out concerning the Trump administration. Here’s one:
When Trump claimed in an interview on Fox News on Sunday that “Biden wants to defund the police,” host Chris Wallace admonished, “Sir, he does not.”
Trump cited the charter that Joe Biden had signed with Bernie Sanders, but he should have mentioned Biden’s response in a July 8th interview when journalist Ady Barkan wanted to know: “The leaders of Black Lives Matter . . . believe that the solution is to reduce the number of interactions that civilians have with the police. We can reduce the responsibilities assigned to the police and redirect some of the funding for police into social services, mental health counseling, and affordable housing. . . . Are you open to that kind of reform?” Biden responded: “Yes, I proposed that kind of reform.”
Firenze Sage: This is just a smattering of the lies and misreps of the supposedly neutral press.
