'The way I deal with the defund the police — it’s the dumbest thing I`ve ever heard my whole life'

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) blasted the growing liberal sentiment surrounding the "defund the police" movement in the United States.

During an interview on “Fox News Primetime,” Scott said the push to defund police departments is “the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard my whole life.”

After praising the police, he emphasized the importance of law enforcement receiving more funding for equipment and money for training.

“Having run a county with a sheriff’s department myself previously, it’s really important for us to make sure they have the tools necessary,” Scott stated.

'We need to provide more resources, more money — bottom line when I say resources,' Scott said

“[T]he way I deal with the defund the police — it’s the dumbest thing I`ve ever heard my whole life,” he added.

“Having [grown] up in a single-parent household and poverty, we always want police officers around when necessary, especially to keep our moms safe," he added.

"So, that’s really important."

"So, that is off the table, from my opinion."

'We don’t need less money for the police. We need more,' Scott said

"And we need to provide more resources, more money — bottom line when I say resources," he continued.

"I mean money — coming into especially our smaller departments and even our mid-size departments so that the training to intervene and the training on de-escalation."

"All those training dollars are incredibly important."

"We don’t need less money for the police.

"We need more,” he asserted.

WATCH:

Scott's remarks come just weeks after the financial records revealed that the radical Democrat "Squad" members spent tens of thousands of dollars on personal security while pushing for police forces across America to have their budgets slashed.
