President Donald Trump acknowledged that the killing of George Floyd was “terrible” but refused to answer a question about police brutality against Black Americans, rather than pointing out that the victims of police brutality were “more white people”
Floyd, a handcuffed black man, died in Minneapolis police custody on May 25 after Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police, held him to the ground and kneeled for nine minutes on his neck, ignoring his repeated ‘I can’t breathe’ appeal.
During an interview with CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge, Trump was asked why Black Americans are “still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country.”
“And so are white people, so are white people,” Trump replied.
“What a terrible question to ask. So are white people, more white people by the way, more white people,” Trump continued.
