    The Facts

    • Nancy Pelosi has denounced defunding the police amid a push of the policy by progressive Democrats.

    • Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) has said she will continue using the slogan ahead of the 2022 midterms, despite facing pressure not to.


    The Spin

    Right narrative

    Bush and the rest of 'the squad' are hypocrites who've spent thousands hiring private security for themselves. While they call to defund the police, crime has rocketed across the US.

    Left narrative

    Legislation advancing racial equality has stalled and discriminative police tactics are continuing to kill Black Americans. Defund the police means invigorating preventative measures to protect minorities from continuing oppression.
