Trump says there will be no defunding of police in U.S.

Washington: President Donald Trump dismissed calls to defund police and praised the nation’s officers during a roundtable discussion with law enforcement officials on Monday.

Trump responded to calls to defund police sparked by the police-involved killing of Geroge Floyd in Minneapolis, where city council members over the weekend pledged to disband the police department.

“There won’t be defunding, there won’t be dismantling of our police and there is not going to be any disbanding of our police,” said Trump.

The president went on to say that he believes a vast majority of police officers do their jobs properly and only some bad actors must be dealt with.

“We want to make sure we don’t have any bad actors in there and sometimes, you’ll see some horrible things like we witnessed recently, but 99 — I say 99.9, but let’s go with 99 percent of them are great, great people and they’ve done jobs that are record-setting,” he said.
