During the Black Lives Matter riots that took place in the summer of 2020, Democrats declared war on law enforcement.
“Defund the police” became a rally cry in the Democrat Party.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez flew off the rails when she heard Joe Biden say these three words about police officers.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her far-Left “Squad” have championed the cause of “defunding the police” since the violent Black Lives Matter riots that erupted across the country in the summer of 2020.
With crime skyrocketing in cities nationwide, defunding the police is not a popular idea among the American public.
But leftists like Ocasio-Cortez refuse to budge an inch and threaten to Primary any Democrat who opposes their anti-police agenda.
That’s why Ocasio-Cortez will be furious over what Biden said on Saturday when addressing the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
While touting the so-called “American Rescue Plan,” Biden singled out Knoxville, Tennessee Mayor Indya Kincannon.
“Is the Mayor here?” Biden asked the crowd.
“Yes, I’m right here,” Kincannon responded from the audience.
Biden showered her with praise, calling it “a big deal” that she “gave premium pay to police officers and firefighters to keep them on the job.”
He also called out Mesa, Arizona Mayor John Giles and praised him for spending more money on first responders in his city.
Joe Biden then ripped the idea of defunding the police and claimed Democrats wanted to massively increase funding for law enforcement.
“When it comes to public safety — when it comes to public safety, we know the answer is not to defund the police,” Biden said. “Not to defund the police!”
Instead of defunding the police, Biden said the solution is “to retrain some police, to make sure there’s accountability, and to make sure we know exactly what’s happening.”
However, Biden doubled down and said the solution is certainly “not to defund the police.”
Instead, the President said the police “need more funding!”
Crime has become a major issue in Democrat-run cities after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other radicals attacked the police while George Soros-backed prosecutors pushed pro-criminal policies.
Democrat political operatives know this is a problem for the Party.
And Joe Biden is trying to gaslight the American people into believing that Democrats are the pro-law enforcement Party.
