During Monday’s White House press conference, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany expressed that the President is appalled by the current movement from the far left to defund police departments. McEnany was asked “What is the president’s thinking on this growing movement to either defund or dismantle the police forces across the country, and what reforms does the president think would be appropriate in the week of the George Floyd killing?
McEnany expressed President Donald Trump’s thoughts toward the Defund the Police Movement. “The president is appalled by the defund the police movement. The fact that you have sitting congresswomen wanting to defund the police, notably Rashida Tlaib, notably Biden advisor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a former Clinton and Eric Holder spokesperson Brian Fallon, wanting to defund our police across this country, it is extraordinary. And when you think the Left has gone far, and they couldn’t possibly go farther, because we all remember the defund ICE movement, and now they want to defund the police. This is extraordinary.”
President Trump has always been pro-law enforcement and has recently called himself the “President of Law and Order” in a speech following a weekend of riots and looting.
McEnany went on, “This is rolling back the protective layers that protects Americans in their homes and their places of business. He is appalled by it. And it’s remarkable to hear this coming from today’s Democrat party,” she said. “As for solutions, he’s talking through a couple of proposals, no announcements on that yet, but he definitely recognizes the horrid injustice done to George Floyd and is taking a look at various proposals.”
We have seen Mayors of major cities looking to move budgets away from police departments or completely dismantle those departments.
