Tim Scott calls out Biden aide for blaming GOP for defunding police: 'Most ridiculous thing ever said'

POLICE GROUPS, LEADERS REACT TO MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR BLAMING COPS FOR RISE IN NEW YORK CRIME: ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’

TIM SCOTT: That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard all year long, and we’ve heard some very ridiculous things from the Democrats, but this is now the icing on the cake. This is the most ridiculous thing ever said.

The facts are simple. Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, Cleveland and New York, all Baltimore, all have defunded to police. What we’ve seen is a 40 percent increase in violent crime in major cities because the Democrats have been defunding the police for the last year. Plus, what we have done on the other side, of course, is to refund the police.

Even the police reform legislation I’m currently working on provides more money for officers, because the last thing you can do is ask someone to go into the most dangerous places in our country without the resources and without covering their liability. If you don’t do those two things, you can’t ask good people to go into bad places to make them even better.
