President Biden raised eyebrows after answering a reporter’s question about whether Democrats want to defund the police.

“Uh, Uh, I, I’m not sure… Are there people in the Democratic Party who want to defund the police?” The reporter asks again as Biden walks away appearing to have a smile on his face.
Biden’s refusal to give a direct answer to the question, along with the bizarre nature of his answer, left many wondering what the President was thinking.
