You're not going to believe this, but Joe Biden made a claim that "MAGA Republicans" are calling for defunding the police. However, this claim is untrue, and Republicans have never called for defunding the police. In fact, it was the radical left who has always called for defunding the police. They're just trying to backtrack now that they see that it's not a good idea and doesn't work.

The idea of defunding the police gained momentum during the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020. The radical left argued that police departments were inherently racist and that their funding should be redirected towards social programs. However, this idea was met with widespread criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.
Republicans have always been strong supporters of law enforcement and have never advocated for defunding the police. In fact, they have consistently pushed for increased funding for law enforcement agencies to ensure public safety.
Joe Biden's claim that "MAGA Republicans" are calling for defunding the police is simply an attempt to shift blame away from his own party's failed policies. The Democrats' calls to defund the police have led to a rise in crime rates across the country, particularly in cities like Chicago and New York.
The truth is that defunding the police does not work. It only leads to more crime and chaos in our communities. Law enforcement agencies need adequate funding to hire more officers, provide better training, and purchase necessary equipment.
Republicans understand this reality and have consistently advocated for increased funding for law enforcement agencies. They know that public safety should be a top priority for any government.
If you don't believe or don't remember who said what, just watch this video which is nine minutes worth of Democrats saying that they need to defund the police.
