A new video produced by the Republican National Committee (RNC) highlights leading Democrat officials’ support for defunding the police as the Democratic Party tries to back away from the idea.

The RNC took aim at prominent Democrat lawmakers ranging from "Squad" leader Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., publishing 7 straight minutes of Democrats echoing talking points of the "defund the police" movement. 

"Suck it up. Defunding the police has to happen. We need to defund the police," Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo., another member of the Squad—a group of young radical progressives—said in the video exclusively obtained by Fox News.

"You don't have one bad apple. You don't have four bad apples. You have a system-wide problem in that police department," failed Senate and presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, says in the video.

"And only by completely dismantling that system and rebuilding it intentionally with the community members at the table do you have any hope of getting it right," he continues.
