Valerie Jarrett: Under ‘Enormous Pressure’ from Protesters Trump Is Playing ‘Catch Up’ on Police Reform

‘When President Trump took office, he dismantled the Civil Rights division of the Justice Department that we had built up’

EXCERPT:
JARRETT: “Definitely falls short. And, again, when President Trump took office, he dismantled the Civil Rights division of the Justice Department that we had built up. He stopped his Justice Department from doing pattern and practice investigations. He cut the resources that were there to help local law enforcement implement evidence-based practices that would improve the bond of trust between police and communities of color. So they are way short, they’re trying to play catch up now, and I think frankly because they’re being put under enormous pressure by the American people.”
