Posted on 07/17/2020 4:42:06 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
Friday in a preview an interview that will air Sunday, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace pushed back on President Donald Trumps claim that Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden does not support defunding police departments.
Wallace said, Liberal Democrats have been running cities in this country for decades.
Trump said, Poorly.
Wallace said, Why is it so bad right now?
Trump answered, They run them poorly, it was always bad, but now its gotten totally out of control, and its really because they want to defund the police and Biden wants to defund the police.
Wallace interjected, Sir, he does not.
Trump shot back, He signed a charter with Bernie Sanders.
Wallace said, It says nothing about defunding the police.
President Trump: Oh, really? It says abolish, it says. Lets go, get me the charter, please.
While discussing the clip with anchor, Bill Hemmer Wallace said, That led to a very interesting exchange where he had his staff go out and get the highlights from that 100-page compact that the Biden team and the Sanders team had signed, and he went through it, and he found a lot of things that he objected to that Biden has agreed to, but he couldnt find any indication because there isnt any that Joe Biden has sought to defund and abolish the police.

We all know what Joe Biden says/wants, and eventually he's going to cave to the far-left element of his party.
Chris, go to Hell. Seriously.
It is not, or should not be Chris Wallace’s role to advocate for Joe Biden.
For ANYBODY to give Byedone credence on any issue is beyond disingenuous.
Wallace is a Dem sychophant.
“Read the transcript, Candy”.
What the hell was Trump thinking to give an interview to this nasal voiced retromingent jackass? Chris Wallace is an utter buffoon whose only claim to fame was his father.
Wallace is a lying lowlife.
I was flipping channels and happened to stumble upon this blip.....the President saying Biden wants to defund the police and Wallace saying that was not true.
Yes, we all know even if he hasn’t said it openly, Biden will be directed by the “DEFUND THE POLICE” forces in his entourage.
But does anybody have anything that Biden has said recently that the President can say shows Biden wants to defund the police?
Why would President Trump waste his time with this jagoff?
OF COURSE it’s his role. The ONLY role of 99.9% of “the media” is to propogandize and cover for the corrupt and the communist.
Why would Trump do an interview with Wallace in the first place.
Likely because it’s the lesser of the Sunday “news” show evil. And, it probably has a higher viewership than any other of the Sunday shows. Just guesses on my part because I don’t waste my time with any of them.
splitting hairs, here is what Biden actually said, which is more of less the same thing as defunding, its just smooth talking politician talk that means the same thing.
From the compact...
Democrats support policies that will reorient our public safety approach toward prevention, and away from over-policingincluding by making evidence-based investments in jobs, housing, education, and the arts that will make our nation fairer, freer, and more prosperous.
Sounds like defunding to me.
Ran across this. Defunding police means or used to mean directing funds away from p9lice. If this isnt defunding police I dont know what does. Now they are calling to end police. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-says-some-funding-should-absolutely-be-redirected-from-police
I know not everything is 4D chess, maybe Trump made an honest mistake. However, it seemed very specific that Trump would insist on reading through the list, almost planned. Either way, what this does is drive a wedge between Biden and BLM. Biden can’t support their call to defund the police without proving Trump correct. Now he has to walk on eggshells all the way to the election while not saying anything remotely close to defunding the police, or even reallocating funds from the police, no matter how much the far Left wants him too.
In short, it may further keep the Bernie bots on the sidelines.
Did Joe already say he wanted to ?
Is it just me, or is the pandemic the worst in battleground States? Florida, PA, Texas....
