The far left has gone completely mad.
After spending the last few weeks pushing the idea of defunding or abolishing the police, progressive groups are now pressuring Joe Biden to defund the United States Military if he is elected.
They also want him to end the Space Force.
America’s enemies would just love that.
Joe Biden Pressured to Defund the Military, End Space Force as President
Progressive groups are pushing 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden to cut the military budget by hundreds of billions and move his foreign policy platform further left.
They have laid out a progressive wish list that includes cutting the Pentagon’s budget by $200 billion each year, ending the refurbishment of the nation’s nuclear arsenal begun under Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and getting rid of the Space Force — at a time when U.S. adversaries are ramping up spending in those areas.
More than 50 progressive groups made the demands in a letter sent to Biden in May. It is not clear how receptive Biden is to their demands, but he has already indicated he is open to cutting the defense budget.
“We can maintain a strong defense and protect our safety and security for less,” he told the Washington Post.
Trump called this out as completely crazy and he is right:
“Now the Democrat Party is calling for defunding of our military. Think of that: defunding. They want to defund our military when China is building a massive military. They’re building a massive military, and Biden wants to defund our military. And the world needs American strength right now more than ever, and we’ve got it,” Trump said.
The American left is a danger to America’s national security.
First, the Left wanted to defund ICE.
Next, they wanted to defund DHS.
Then, it was #DefundThePolice.
Now? The Left is calling to defund the military.
Their real project is to “cancel” America! https://t.co/HTKFHIAXo7

With Schumer’s support of the Sanders 10% cut in national defense the Democrats have added defund the military to defund the police. Anyone committed to protecting you should be cut while those who want to hurt you should be “respected.” The Chinese and criminals are both happy.

The American people must not let these leftists take power in November.
