President Biden is taking heat for using a Police Week statement to highlight a “deep sense of distrust” between law enforcement and minority communities.

“Every morning, our Nation’s law enforcement officers pin on a badge and go to work, not knowing what the day will bring, and hoping to come home safely,” the President began a proclamation tweeted out Saturday.

“This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement,” Biden said.

The controversial reference was slammed as “beyond disappointing” by Jason Johnson, the head of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, who told Fox News Biden’s words “continue to perpetuate false and hurtful myths about police, rather than uniting as he claimed he would during the campaign.”
