Obama met with representatives of several police groups at the White House on Monday, just one day before he attends a commemoration — and gives a speech — in Dallas for five cops who were killed by anti-white, racist African-American.

When the police groups told him that he’s not done enough to support the nation’s popular police forces, Obama quickly rejected their criticism, Vice President Joe Biden told CNN.

He said, ‘I’ll be happy to send you all of these statements that I have made,” Biden said. “I don’t think that the [police groups] heard loudly and clearly, that, he in fact has, repeatedly, been supportive of the police organizations,” Biden insisted.
