Former President Barack Obama said during an interview with Peter Hamby that "snappy" slogans, like defund the police, cause loss of support.
“You lost a big audience the minute you say it, which makes it a lot less likely that you’re actually going to get the changes you want done,” Obama explained. “The key is deciding, do you want to actually get something done, or do you want to feel good among the people you already agree with?” he asked.
On Wednesday's broadcast of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” host Joy Reid declared that "defund the police" energized young voters, and disagreed with Obama. She declared that no one who “disagrees with defund the police was ever going to vote for any Democrat anyway."
Reid said, “I gently disagree with President Obama. I don’t think anybody who disagrees with defund the police was ever going to vote for any Democrat anyway, so I think it energized a lot of young voters.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar also broke with Obama. The Squad member said, “We lose people in the hands of police. It’s not a slogan but a policy demand. And centering the demand for equitable investments and budgets for communities across the country gets us progress and safety."
