— -- Vice President Joe Biden today laughed at the suggestion of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump being the "law and order" candidate.

When asked by ABC News' George Stephanopoulos about Trump's comments at his campaign event today that he would be the “law and order candidate,” Biden laughed before responding.

"I’d rather not make this story about Donald Trump. So, I’m gonna restrain myself," Biden said, referring to the shooting deaths of five Dallas police officers in last week's sniper attack. "But the truth of the matter is that one of the problems we’ve had is getting funding for law enforcement from his party."

"And maybe he’ll come forward and be supportive of more support for community policing," Biden added.

Today's interview followed Biden's and President Obama's meeting with law enforcement leaders at the White House.
