Trump turns on police vandalism: 'More blondes killed'

In an interview aired Tuesday, Donald Trump asked a question about the assassination of George American Floyd, a black American who organized large national protests to indicate that whites were also killed by law enforcement in the US.

In 2017, at the time of the controversy, the president said his remarks on white protesters and counter-protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, echoed, and there were fair people on both sides. On Tuesday, the issue of racially motivated police brutality but turned to talk about white victims.

He wrongly argued that white Americans were more likely to die at the hands of the police than black Americans.

Trump was asked about this in an interview with Catherine Herridge of CBS News.

He began: "Let's talk about George Floyd. You said George Floyd's death was a terrible thing."

"Terrible," Trump said.

Then here are: "Why are African Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement?"

The chairman immediately pivoted.

"Whites are the same. Whites are the same," Trump said in response. "What a terrible question. Whites are like that too. More blondes by the way. More blondes.

Hiridge was killed in a flood of questions after weeks of protests as police tried to arrest him in Minneapolis in May. His death was filmed by a member of the public, who pleaded with the authorities to stop Floyd, pleading for his life and saying "I can not."

Officers were fired, but later arrested and charged, and the assassination led to violent protests across America and in towns and cities, and lawyers and activists called for widespread police reform. There has been minimal discussion between the U.S. and the internationally revived debate and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Trump's claims about police killing more whites in America are misleading.

The Guardian's research project 2015-2016, decided to record that all those killed by police in America were twice as likely to be killed by police as blacks in America.

And in 2016, blacks aged 15-34 were nine times more likely to be killed by law enforcement officers than other Americans, and they were four times more likely to be killed than young whites.

A similar 2016 analysis by The Washington Post found that African Americans are 2.5 times more likely to be shot dead by giving to the police than white Americans.

According to another study published in 2018 in the American Journal of Public Health, African Americans are 3.5 times more likely to be killed by police than whites.

Trump has repeatedly pointed to the intensification of protests over Floyd's death, the violence created by police and law enforcement officials against Democrats and anti-fascist extremists, and fueled by his political opponents. He emphasized much of his criticism for abandoning Confederate monuments and renaming military bases honored by Confederate generals.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers in Mississippi have worked together to change the state flag, which does not include the federal symbol, and Trump has argued that the flag is not an insult to African Americans or a symbol of black oppression.

"Good people like it, I know people like the Confederate flag, they don't think about slavery," Trump said.

He criticized the banning of the Confederate flag at Necker stock car racing events and confirmed the sincerity of a noise found in Bubba Wallace's garage, which Wallace responded to after calling for a federal investigation and "hate on love". The president attacked him.
