Trump TV Ads Claiming Biden Wants to Defund Police are Lies
These egregious lying TV, Radio, Social Media Ads should be taken down, and the Trump campaign should be fined for the intentional Fake News.
Chris Wallace, during his most recent interview with President Donald Trump’s, confronted Trump’s lie that former Vice President Joe Biden supports the defunding of police departments. Wallace and Trump were discussing a rise in crime. When Trump said…
“It’s because they want to defund the police — and Biden wants to defund the police.”
Wallace was taken aback by the false accusation and interjected.
“Sir, he does not.”
Trump confronted with the truth said…
“Look, he signed a charter with Bernie Sanders.”
Chris Wallace, however, unlike many at FOX News, wouldn’t back down and accept the lie as a fact said….
“And it says nothing about defunding the police.”
Trump confronted, stopped the interview saying…
“Oh, really? It says abolish. It says — let’s go. Get me the charter, please.”
A Trump aid then retrieved the charter in question, and Trump realized he was caught in a lie when he couldn’t find any language about defunding the police after reading through it.
The fact that Trump cannot prove his allegation that Joe Biden wants to defund police and, in fact, doesn’t support that policy should trigger every TV, radio, social network platform to pull down his ads alleging and using this lie.
