Trump says calls to defund police is a ‘fad,’ stands with law enforcement

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said that despite increasing calls to defund police departments, it is something his administration would never do, and called the movement a “fad,” adding he stands with law enforcement. The calls to defund police has grown over the past several weeks in the wake of police brutality cases and protests against anti-Black racism, following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, who died in police custody on Memorial Day after a white former police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. He died from asphyxiation as a result.
