Who’s idea was it to allow President Trump to be interviewed by Chris Wallace? Wallace is hostile to President Trump. Joe Biden has said that police funding should be redirected. How is that different from de-funding the police, Chris Wallace? Fox News is becoming a joke.

’Are We Going to Name Them After Al Sharpton?’
Chris, if I “redirected” money from your paycheck to another anchor would you feel like you were defunded?
Because that’s exactly what @JoeBiden said he would do with police departments.
Come on man! 😂 https://t.co/JDQf7GulLM

Wallace And Trump Clash After Trump Claims Biden ‘Wants To Defund’ The Police
By Daily Wire, July 18, 2020
On Friday, Fox News released a clip from an interview with President Donald Trump set to air on Sunday.
In the clip, Trump alleges that the rise in crime in major cities across the United States is due to those cities being poorly run by Democratic politicians. After Fox News anchor Chris Wallace probes the president as to why this issue has so recently gotten so out of hand, Trump says that it’s because “they want to defund the police.”
he president then adds that “Biden wants to defund [the police].”
WALLACE: You’ve seen deaths up in New York, deaths up in Chicago, shootings. How do you explain it, and what are you going to do about it?
TRUMP: I explain it very simply by saying they’re Democrat-run cities; they’re liberally-run; they’re stupidly-run.
WALLACE: Liberal Democrats have been running cities in this country for decades –
WALLACE: Why is it so bad right now?
TRUMP: They’ve run them poorly – it was always bad, but now it’s gotten totally out of control. And it’s really because they want to defund the police. And Biden wants to defund [the police].
WALLACE: Sir, he does not.
TRUMP: Look, he signed a charter with Bernie Sanders –
WALLACE: It says nothing about defunding the police.
TRUMP: Oh, really? It says abolish, it says [defund] – let’s go.
WALLACE: All right.
TRUMP: Get me the charter, please.
WALLACE: All right.
The clip ends there, but Wallace explained to the network’s Bill Hemmer what happened next:
That led to a very interesting exchange where he had his staff go out and get the highlights from that 100-page compact that the Biden team and the Sanders team had signed, and he went through it and he found a lot of things that he objected to that Biden has agreed to, but he couldn’t find any indication – because there isn’t any – that Joe Biden has sought to defund and abolish the police.
Corrupt Joe Biden wants to defund our police. He may use different words, but when you look at his pact with Crazy Bernie, and other things, that’s what he wants to do. It would destroy America!

During an interview with activist Ady Barkan published by NowThis in early-July, Biden spoke about police reform and the reallocation of certain police funding.
BIDEN: There’s a need for fundamental change in us being able to have transparency, be able to have access to the records of police when they had misconduct charges against them, to be able to know where they are so they can’t go from one police department to the next. That should be held, in my administration, that information will have to be made available to the Justice Department and held in a file, so you’ll be able to track this.
Surplus military equipment for law enforcement, they don’t need that. The last thing you need is an up-armored Humvee coming into a neighborhood – it’s like the military invading. They don’t know anybody; they become the enemy. They’re supposed to be protecting these people.
So my generic point is that—
BARKAN: But do we agree that we can redirect some of the funding?
BIDEN: Yes. Absolutely – and one of the things that we also need to be doing is fundamentally changing the way – and I’ve been pushing it for years – changing the way we deal with our prison system.
Under the criminal justice reform section of the “Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations” document, which is over 100 pages long, there is no mention of abolishing or defunding the police.
The portion of the document dealing with criminal justice goes on at length about police reform, such as the “continued use” of body cameras, “investing in robust training,” nationwide “standards” on “use of force,” and “over-policing” seemingly as it pertains to the American drug epidemic.
