White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday said it’s the Republicans who are trying to defund the police.
Psaki repeated this lie under questioning from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.
According to Psaki, Republicans are the ones defunding the police and not supporting law enforcement because they voted against Biden’s gargantuan Covid relief plan that had nothing to do with Covid.
The Covid bill included funding for ‘community policing’ and Psaki argued that since Republicans voted against Biden’s bill, they are the ones defunding police.
For the past year, Democrats have openly called for the defunding of police.
Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and other leading Democrats have waged a war on cops and several Democrat-led cities have defunded their police departments.
