“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace joined “Bill Hemmer Reports” Friday afternoon to preview his White House sit-down interview with President Trump that will air this Sunday.
“We talked about everything,” Wallace told host Bill Hemmer. “We talked about COVID and the explosion of cases in this country, questions of masks, questions of testing. [We] also talked about politics, the polls, a new Fox News poll that we discussed with the president which shows him trailing. But he seems dead certain that he is going to beat Joe Biden in November.”
Wallace then shared a clip from the interview, in which Trump tells Wallace that Democrats “want to defund the police and Biden wants to defund the police.”
“Sir, he does not,” Wallace fires back, fact-checking Trump’s false claim.
“Look, he signed a charter with Bernie Sanders –“, Trump begins before Wallace cuts him off, “It says nothing about defunding the police.” That prompts Trump to ask an aide to “get me the charter, please.”
“So that led to a very interesting exchange …,” Wallace told Hemmer. “And he went through it and he found a lot of things that he objected to that Biden has agreed to, but couldn’t find any indication — because there isn’t any — that Joe Biden has sought to defund and abolish the police.”
Trump says Biden wants to defund the police, pointing to his “charter” with Sanders.
Chris Wallace points out the Sanders-Biden task force doesn’t mention defunding police.
Trump, lying: “Oh, really? It says abolish, it says…” To aide: “Let’s go. Get me the charter, please.” https://t.co/WFRIDKmQxL
