(AmericanProsperity.com) – The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took off following the death of George Floyd in May of 2020. Since then, multitudes of Democratic lawmakers have called for all levels of government to defund their police departments and reallocate that money to community resources. However, when asked about this during a CNN town hall, President Joe Biden completely denied it.
Biden Lies on National Television
On Wednesday, July 21, CNN host Don Lemon asked President Biden his thoughts about the anti-police rhetoric Republicans frequently point out within the Democratic party. Biden immediately lowered his voice and responded, “they’re lying.”
The president went on to claim that the Left has only asked for changes to police conduct and more transparency within police departments. He also went on to say that cops “aren’t saying ‘Joe Biden is anti-police,’” something that many police officers have publicly stated.
Lawmakers Don’t Let Biden’s Manipulation Go Unanswered
On Thursday, July 22, Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) spoke with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” about the president’s ridiculous statements. After sharing a video montage of Democrats calling for defunding the police, Kennedy reiterated, “President Biden is not telling the truth.” He even joked that the president “has a Ph.D.” in telling falsities.

Example After Example of Dems Asking to Defund the Police
Just in case anyone believed President Biden’s claims, here are some of the most notable quotes from members of the Left’s “squad” that have called for defunding the police. House representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) called for the reallocation of funds in June 2020, shown here:
When we say #DefundPolice, what we mean is people are dying and we need to invest in people's livelihoods instead.
EXAMPLE: Detroit spent $294 million on police last year, and $9 million on health.

Similarly, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) said that “defunding the police isn’t radical” on January 27. Meanwhile, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) did not mince words when she claimed that “defunding the police means defunding police.”
These are the same lawmakers who have called for reparations for black Americans and begun pushing racist ideologies like Critical Race Theory. They have made their agenda clear time and time again, despite what Biden says.
President Biden Dug Himself Into a Hole, Again
When confronted by reporters about his lies and shortcomings, President Biden is notorious for getting short, snappy, and defensive. This instance with CNN’s Don Lemon was no different as he tried to pander to more moderate Americans.
But, most citizens can see right through Biden’s placating rhetoric. They understand that while he may continue to spout that he’s a middle-of-the-road politician set on unifying our nation, he’s truly just paving the way for the radical Left’s agenda, which includes defunding the police, to infiltrate our nation. Thankfully, people like Senator Kennedy will continue to point out Biden’s lies whenever they come out of his mouth.
