Steve Scalise calls on Biden to take a position on defunding police: He’s hiding and trying to ‘play both ends’
House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise joins ‘Fox & Friends’ to talk damage from the tropical depression and the debate on Capitol Hill on reforming police departments.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise on Monday blasted Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for “quietly embracing” the movement to defund the police while avoiding to take a clear position on the issue.
“You’re even seeing on the left the debate, where the mayor of New York City and the governor of New York are not [avoiding the issue]” the Louisiana Republican told “Fox & Friends.”
“Joe Biden is trying to play both ends of this and then hide out in his bunker and not directly address it, while yet trying to quietly embrace the defund movement.”
Scalise said that Biden ought to be very vocal about his position on “defunding the police.”
“It’s not the direction to go,” Scalise said.
