(BREAKING WIDE) – Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar loses it as former President Barack Obama blows the fuse on Democrats saying the defund the police slogan does nothing good but cause more divide.
The battle between moderates and and progressives in the Democratic party appears to be heating up, Obama saying in an interview that this whole idea of ‘defund the police’ is alienating a large slice of America.
“We should be able to reform the criminal justice system so that it’s not biased and treat everybody fairly. I guess you can use a snappy slogan like defund the police. But you know, you’ve lost a big audience the minute you say it which makes it a lot less likely that you’re actually going to get the changes you want done,” Obama said.
