Demings called the amendment “totally irrelevant.”

“I was a law enforcement officer for 27 years,” said Demings, a former police officer. “It’s a tough job and a good police officer deserves your help. As you know, my colleague on the other side of the aisle helps the police when it’s politically convenient. It’s interesting to see it. “

At that time, Jordan interrupted her speech and urged Demings to raise her voice and clap her hands at the table.
