21. This is exactly what he has to say - REFORM, not defund. And it's how we have to say it, too.

We can't give an opening for the trumpists to claim that Dems want to get rid of cops and let lawlessness and anarchy rule our streets - because you know that's how they'll be painting it.

WE know what we mean by "defund the police" - but the actual meaning and intent behind that slogan are far too nuanced and complex for the closed minds who will instinctively react with fear and horror, imagining themselves being forced to live in a world of rampant crime with no law enforcement.

We do NOT want to scare off the suburban moms who have been edging away from trump.
