The Democrat party is falling apart as the infighting is getting even worse.
During an interview on ABC, Nancy Pelosi agreed that “Defund the police is dead.”
This comes as Democrats’ chances of winning midterms are getting worse and worse.
Host George Stephanopoulos said, â€œThe other thing weighing on people now is rising crime. There appear to be some divisions among Democrats on how to handle it. Your colleague Karen Bass running for mayor of Los Angeles trying to increase had the police force in L.A. Cori Bush, congresswoman from Missouri, is saying time to defund the police. She is sticking by that. Youâ€™re the speaker. How do you think Democrats should address rising crime?â€
Pelosi said, â€œWith all due respect in the world for Cori Bush, thatâ€™s not the position of the Democratic Party. Community safety to protect and defend in every way is our oath of office. Weâ€™re all concerned about mistreatment of people. Thatâ€™s why Karen Bass had The Justice in Policing Act. We would hope to get some of that done, whether itâ€™s no-knock, chokehold, or some of those issues even if we canâ€™t get it all done.â€
Pelosi said, â€œMake no mistake, community safety is our responsibility. I quote one of my colleagues from New York, Ritchie Torres, a brand new member of Congress way on the left, saying that â€˜defund the policeâ€™ is dead. That causes a concern with a few in our caucus. But public safety is our responsibility.â€
Democrats spent the entirety of the 2020 election cycle being the party of Defund the Police. Now that it failed Pelosi is trying to run from it.
