Trump signs order on police reform after weeks of protests about police brutality, racial injustice

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order on police reform in the country after public outcry and weeks-long protests following the death of George Floyd. The executive order is aimed at improving police practices such as use of force, and includes a ban on chokeholds unless an officer’s life is in danger. Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minn. on Memorial Day after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes until he became unresponsive.
