President Donald Trump continued saying Friday night that Democratic opponent Joe Biden wants to defund the police after Fox News aired a snippet of his interview with Chris Wallace, who called him out on that claim.
In the preview of Wallace’s big Fox News Sunday interview with the president, Trump went after the “stupidly-run” cities run by Democrats facing increases in crime.
At one point he said that Biden wants to defund the police, and Wallace immediately responded, “Sir, he does not.”
Trump insisted, “He signed a charter with Bernie Sanders…”
“It says nothing about defunding the police,” Wallace said.
“Oh really?” the president said. “It says ‘abolish,’ it says ‘defund.’ Let’s go. Get me the charter, please.”
