Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the driving force behind Joe Biden’s radical left-wing agenda.
But this cozy relationship could be coming to an end.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was furious when Joe Biden made this surprising move.
Led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, after the radical Left took over the Democrat Party, they put the police in their crosshairs.
In the wake of George Floyd, Ocasio-Cortez helped launch the disastrous defund the police movement.
Democrats started an all-out war against the police for simply doing their jobs.
Police departments across the country were defunded during the hysteria.
Police officers were disrespected like never before, becoming the scapegoats for years of failed policies in Democrat-dominated cities.
With budgets cut and the police pulling back, criminals began to run wild.
Democrats unleashed a crime tsunami that hadn’t been seen in generations, as the country saw the highest increase in the murder rate in modern history.
With crime becoming a major political problem, Democrats began to back track on their support for defunding the police.
Joe Biden, who previously told a left-wing activist that he supported redirecting police funding, said during the State of the Union that we needed to “fund the police.”
Now he’s making another desperate political ploy to distance Democrats from defunding the police.
At a White House event with police chiefs and mayors, he urged local leaders to bolster police spending with money from the American Rescue Plan.
“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. To every governor, every mayor, every county official, the need is clear, my message is clear: Spend this money now that you have,” Biden said.
“Use these funds we made available to you to prioritize public safety,” he continued.
“Do it quickly, before the summer, when crime rates typically surge. Taking action today is going to save lives tomorrow. So, use the money. Hire the police officers,” he added.
Biden is redirecting $10 billion from the $2 trillion American Rescue Plan to cities and states “for public safety and violence prevention.”
With the Midterm elections coming up, Biden is desperately trying to sweep Democrats’ support for defunding the police under the rug.
The American Rescue Plan was a massive special interest giveaway that was sold as pandemic relief.
Now Biden is using it as an election year slush fund while simultaneously asking for more pandemic funding from Congress.
After wholeheartedly embracing defunding the police, Democrats are running away from it with phony election year stunts.
Biden thinks voters are stupid and will forget about Democrats’ support for it by promising to throw some cash at the police in an election year.
But some Democrats aren’t going to let voters forget their support for defunding the police.
Ocasio-Cortez’s lackey in the Squad, Cori Bush of St. Louis, has promised to keep fighting to defund the police, even after moderate Democrats asked her to stop.
With crime surging, voters will be reminded of Democrats’ support for this disastrous policy.
