President Joe Biden told CNN during a city hall on Wednesday that Republicans who call the Democratic Party against the police are “liars.”
CNN boss Don Lemon asked the president what he would say to Republicans who want to portray him and the Democratic Party as anti-police. Biden responded with a list of reforms he supports, but in short said all police forces should be withdrawn, as some activists have called for.

Don Lemon: “How do you respond to Republicans who try to fight you and your party as a police force?”

“They’re lying,” Biden replied as the crowd began to crowd. “So we have to change the behavior of the police, we have to have rules where things are open, we have to have rules where you can determine what background, how many times the police have broken the rules, can it have access to what is going on in the police departments so that the Department of Justice can depend on whether or not they change their pattern or practice. I always said that. ”
Lemon asked Biden about the activists calling for the police to return.
“I never said repel the police,” the president replied. “I don’t know of any communities, especially those that are the most needy and the poorest and most dangerous that don’t want the police. They want the police to treat them the same. ”
Several Democrat politicians have supported the police cut, including the Missouri Rep. Cory Bush, Republic of New York Alexandria Ocasio Cortes, and the Republic of Minnesota. Ilhan Omar. However, Democrats have recently returned their position and tried to accuse Republicans of cutting back on police because of the movement’s declining popularity.
