Republicans Respond to “Defund the Police”

Republicans Respond to

( – As protests heated up around the country, a new movement emerged that’s left many people scratching their heads. Some Democrats and those marching in the streets have asked cities to “defund the police.” Republicans are reacting to the demands, and they’re as puzzled as the rest of us.

On June 8, an email from the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) was sent out with the subject line, “Democrats are insane.” NRCC National Press Secretary Michael McAdams said nobody is safe from the Left’s “abolish culture.” President Donald Trump is aghast as well.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president is “appalled by it.”

At least one Democrat is speaking out against the movement. Former Vice President Joe Biden seems to recognize it’s not a smart move. Does it matter, though? Unless he can talk some sense into his party, they’ll keep going after the police, and to what end?

Dems say they want reform, but reducing the funding for already cash-strapped police departments isn’t going to make it easy to train officers. It doesn’t seem very well thought out.
