President Donald Trump has consistently made the case for “law and order,” — fighting to keep communities safe and police departments funded. Democrat nominee Joe Biden, though, has joined others in his party calling for funds for the police to be “redirected.”

It’s a fancy way of defunding the police.

Biden was asked if he would agree that funding for the police could be redirected.

“Yes, absolutely,” Biden said.
