Trump and The Rs have effectively de-funded police

I wrote to the mayor and a city council member who represents me about policing a while back, and they have both written back this week. In an interesting twist I realized that the senate Republicans and Donald Trump by not giving financial aid to cities and states are forcing them to cut all services drastically. Many, if not most cities and states rely heavily on sales taxes to fund basic services.

Unlike the feds the cities and states cannot print money. So in an ironic twist the Republicans have already made cuts. Do they ever think things through?
