Trump Signs Order on Police Reform Without Commenting on Racism

June 16, 2020

Today at the White House, President Trump hosted families who lost loved ones to vigilantes and police brutality and law enforcement officials to sign an Executive Order on police reform. The order includes a conditional ban on choke holds, incentivizes local police reform, and funding to support non-police co-responders to deal with responses involving mental health issues, substance abuse, and homelessness. Critics contend the order does not do enough to deal with the systemic oppression and the continued problem of police brutality inflicted upon Black people.

President Trump spoke on the Executive Order.
