Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden claimed Tuesday that President Donald Trump is “the only person calling to defund the police.” In the aftermath of the tragic death of George Floyd, there’s been loud anti-law enforcement rhetoric and calls to defund local police departments.

“I not only don’t want to defund the police, I’m the one calling for 300 million dollars more for local police for community policing,” Biden said. “I also think we should add social workers and psychologists to help police on 9-1-1 calls.

He continued, “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump. Look at his budget. He calls for cutting police funding for state and local by $400 million. Once again, he’s pathological.”

With less than 60 days until the election and key states showing the two candidates neck in neck in many polls, Biden has recently come out of his home in Delaware, where he was conducting voter outreach virtually, to visit those battleground states.

President Trump has made clear he doesn’t support the ‘defund the police’ movement and has even threatened to pull federal funds from cities that adopt such extreme policies. Moreover, the Trump administration has pledged additional funding to law enforcement in many states amid growing civil unrest and riots.

Biden, however, has reportedly flip-flopped on the issue and is said to even have once asserted he would support redirecting funding from law enforcement agencies to support other community services.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’

Published

Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social,  “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”

Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”

It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.

Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.

And the escalation of war is visible.

Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.

Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.

Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”

F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.

Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
