Joe Biden’s campaign was asked Sunday about the demands for defunding the police, but he did not want to talk about it.

The Appeal reported:

Reuters sought to determine where Joe Biden stands on the growing issue.

“A Biden campaign spokesman declined to comment,” Reuters reported.

“Defund the police” has become a litmus test of sorts for far-left activists, and some Democrats are adding fuel to that fire.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) threw her support behind the idea, saying it was time to “disband” the Minneapolis police force and “reimagine” public safety.

The Minneapolis Police Department has proven themselves beyond reform.

It’s time to disband them and reimagine public safety in Minneapolis.

Thank you to @MplsWard3 for your leadership on this! https://t.co/AQfHM5M6eR

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey was forced into a walk of shame Saturday night after he refused to support defunding police.

“Get the fuck outta here,” they yelled at him. Others chanted, “go home, Jacob, go home!”

The New York Times called the spectacle a “humiliation on a scale almost unimaginable outside of cinema or nightmare.”

A protester could be seen throwing an object at Frey as he slinked away.

Biden, so far, has enjoyed the luxury of remaining in his basement, hidden away from volatile activists who want answers.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is attempting to tie Biden to the growing movement.
