Trump eyes criminal justice reforms while overlooking systemic racism

During the last two weeks, since the death of George Floyd, an African American, the advisers of President Donald Trump worked to make ready him to meet the national moment of the country. Some people shared their personal or friend’s stories with racism, stressing the President to be more sympathetic.

A group of officials of White House asked for ideas from U.S. criminal justice reform advocates around police reforms and projected that Trump should meet with the leaders of African Americans. White House officials put Trump in a private room with the officials of law enforcement agencies this week who argued specific aspects of policing might change.

However, as Trump now considers supporting some of those reforms and dealing issues of racism and regulating in a prominent dialogue, his memo on the subject remains scrambled and in some advisers’ view – tinted with a forceful stance he implemented at the start of the countrywide protests that some look as hard to walk back.

Trump sought to stamp out unrest using overwhelming military force

Since the start of the nationwide protests in the two weeks, the President of the United States sought to remove unrest protestors using overwhelming army and police, reflected a slight interest in answering questions of general racism at the heart of the protests and modified his condemnation of the players of NFL kneeling before the start of the game as a form of peaceful protest.

Donald Trump and several of his leading lieutenants deny the systemic racism is a problem in policing even as he considers revealing the proposals of police reform as soon as this week. Many of Trump’s aides ready to present him with possible police reforms on Tuesday morning, he held on an incident of the brutal police force that criticized widely across the nation, alleging a seventy-five-year-old Buffalo protester who seriously hurt when police officers pushed him down to the ground.

Two of the campaign advisers of Trump said that they believe that the President mistreated the national protests. One adviser said that dialogue, deficient of genuine consideration, at any stage might not help. Trump is not sincerely compassionate.

Trump Law and Order Message

Last week, in some meetings as well as in a session with campaign & Republican National Committee communications aides – Trump returned repetitively to his law and order message even as violence and unrest faded from the national protests and National Guard troops started eliminating from Washington.

According to the officials and some other familiar sources, the chief among the concerns of Trump is not looking week in the face of looting and violence, a stance to reinforce in his discussions with partners in conservative media and anywhere else.

Though Trump privately and publicly criticized the killing of unarmed George Floyd, he showed a slight willingness to move beyond the tough-on-crime bombast he believed to appreciate by his core supporters. Moreover, the present efforts inside the White House to organize a listening session for the President with the black leaders have been halting. However, Mike Pence, the Vice President, participated in one previous week.
