USA: Trump says no to defunding, dismantling or disbanding of police

United States, Washington DC
June 9, 2020 at 05:18 GMT -00:00 · Published

Amid nationwide protests against systemic racism and police brutality in the US and a call to overhaul police procedures and accountability by the Democrats, US President Donald Trump said there will not be any "defunding" of the police.

"There's a reason for less crime. That's because we have great law enforcement. I'm very proud of them. There won't be defunding. There won't be a dismantling of our police. And they're not going to be any disbanding of our police," said Trump in a meeting with law enforcement delegates in White House's State Dining Room in Washington DC on Monday.

Protests have been raging all across the US after George Floyd, an African American, died during an arrest on May 25 after a police officer kept his knee on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes despite him protesting he could not breathe.
