Biden “capitalized on our efforts to defund the police, and then tried to condemn the words at the same time,” Dr. Melina Abdullah said last week, according to the Daily Wire.

“We want to be very clear that as we happily usher out the Trump regime, we will not accept liberal white supremacy in the White House in the form of Joe Biden,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah’s comments come as rumors swirl that Biden will pick Garcetti to serve in his Cabinet, prompting large and repeated protests.
