Since the death of George Floyd, Democrats have pushed this notion of "defunding the police." They have worked overtime to make sure Americans know "defunding" doesn't mean abolishing law enforcement agencies in their entirety. In their eyes, it's about shifting funds from police departments to other necessary services, like education and social workers.

As President Trump said on Saturday, Joe Biden may not have said "defund the police," but he used the very phrases and verbiage the Democrats are using surrounding this issue.

Democrats must have realized "defunding the police" doesn't sit well with many Americans, including blacks. Just look at what Bevelyn Beatty, a pro-life black woman, said about the entire thought.
