Joe Biden pushed back on President Donald Trump’s suggestions that he wants to defund the police and that his mental fitness is lacking, saying the opposite is true on both fronts — and that Trump is the one who wants to make cuts to the nation’s law enforcement community.

When asked if Biden is for defunding the police, the former vice president laughed and said, “No I don’t.”

“I don’t want to defund police departments. I think they need more help, they need more assistance, but that, look, there are unethical senators, there are unethical presidents, there are unethical doctors, unethical lawyers, unethical prosecutors, there are unethical cops. They should be rooted out,” Biden said.

Biden then accused Trump of wanting to slash funding to the police.

“By the way, he proposes cutting a half a billion dollars of local police support,” Biden said.

According to The Washington Post, the Trump administration’s 2020 budget proposal slashed funding to a Justice Department program that helps police departments hire new officers.

  1. He doesnt remember he said a few weeks ago that he would defund the police, all his his key people including AOC said to completely defund the police , the media lets him get away with his lies

    • Aron Klein,

      Biden is right and you are wrong. Biden has consistently opposed de-funding the police. The statements to the contrary are Republican lies.

      AOC is not one of his people; AOC even nominated someone else rather than Biden at the Democratic Convention last week.

      And Trump really did try to end the one federal program that helps local law enforcement agencies hire officers. Biden is right about that, too.

      Conservatives have been de-funding police at local levels since the 1970s. Proposition 13 in California in particular was devastating to local government services and police forces there do not have the staffing levels even to do crowd control for large gatherings.
