On Friday's airing of "World News Tonight," ABC News interviewed 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden. During that interview, Biden claimed that he does not want to defund the police, but rather that President Donald Trump is the one behind it because “he proposes cutting a half a billion dollars out of the local police support.”
“Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts asked Biden, “President Trump says that you want to defund the police. Do you?”
Biden replied, “No I don’t. By the way, he proposes cutting a half a billion dollars out of the local police support.”
There should be "national standards" for United States police departments, he continued, and “I don’t want to defund police departments. I think they need more help, they need more assistance.”
Sleepy Joe added that “the only guy to actually put in a bill to actually defund the police is Donald Trump.”
Someone needs to fix his blood pressure meds or something because he obviously has some sort of issue to forget his support of defunding the police and attempt t0 pin it on President Trump.
