BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Democratic National Committee communications director Xochitl Hinojosa asserted on “Bill Hemmer Reports” that Joe Biden “does not support defunding the police” after a law enforcement lobbying group endorsed President Trump’s reelection.
“A lot of people are splitting hairs on this, whether or not he supports defunding the police” host Bill Hemmer asked Hinojosa. “What is the truth about his position?”
“Let me be very clear about this,” Hinojosa emphasized. “Joe Biden does not support defunding the police. And specifically, what he is saying is [that] he wants to make sure that police departments have the tools that they need in order to do their jobs, he just wants the police to have substantially fewer of those tools, and even fewer police to use them… wait a minute, that didn’t come out right. Ok, give me a second so I can remember what MSNBC told me to say if you asked me that question.”
