With protesters around the country pressing their fight against police brutality and racism, President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed an executive order aimed at tracking misconduct by law enforcers and creating incentives for departments to improve their practices.
“In many cases local law enforcement is underfunded, understaffed and under [supported],” Trump said.
The action from Trump, who has focused on the violence seen at some demonstrations and aggressively demanded “law and order” from state leaders, comes as lawmakers of both parties pursue legislation to reform law enforcement in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody.
After reports of wealthy Trump donors getting millions in relief meant for small businesses, the administration is now refusing to disclose where the PPP money went. It's unacceptable.
The American people deserve answers. https://t.co/F2n3PA7RZU

Trump's infantile determination to have a rally and bask in the adulation of his diehard supporters sums up everything that is wrong with him and his presidency. HE IS A FOOL.
