Cruz mocks “insane” Dem spin: Saying GOP wants to defund police is like saying Dems want to build a wall

Appearing with Sean Hannity, Texas Senator Ted Cruz mocked the spin of Democrats trying to blame Republicans for the “defund the police” movement.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently said “The president did mention, that the American Rescue Plan, the state and local funding, something that was supported by the president, a lot of Democrats who supported and voted for the bill, could help ensure local cops were kept on the beat in communities across the country.”

“As you know, didn’t receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat,” she added, accusing Republicans of attempting to depriving law enforcement with funding.

Cruz called the spin “insane” arguing saying the GOP wants to defund the police is like saying Democrats want to build a wall.
