A high-ranking Democrat just issued a stunning reversal and President Donald Trump is grinning. Democratic Party leaders are in total disarray as they try to clean up the mess.
During an interview with the Washington Examiner, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reversed a position becoming quite popular in his own party — defunding or abolishing the police nationwide.
“I said that is the craziest thing I’ve ever heard in my life,” said Manchin. “You can’t defund the police and have militia or anarchy going on. That would be horrible.”
According to Manchin, change needs to occur because “our friends and our colleagues could be stopped just because of the color of their skin, and we’re not because of our color is wrong.”
However, his viewpoint that the answer is not to abolish or defund the police puts him out of step with progressive stars such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Manchin, a conservative Democrat, no longer belongs in his own party and he should just formally make the switch to the Republican Party. This way, he could actually have pro-America allies instead of Marxists.
