Trump's latest attempt to tag Biden as a radical flops [View all]

Politico

Progressives did not revolt after the Democratic nominee rejected the "defund the police" movement.

Joe Biden declared he opposed a growing movement on the left to defund police departments.

President Donald Trump and Republicans are determined to make him own it anyway.

Trump lit into Biden on Twitter, painting him as the leader of the “radical left” and responsible for a movement that celebrates anarchy, coddles “antifa” and demonizes law enforcement.

But the swiftness and clarity of Biden's dismissal, which came as CBS, ABC’s “The View” and other media outlets were peppering Democratic politicians with questions about defunding the police, suggests Biden's team wanted to head off an issue it saw as politically poisonous.
