Trump threatens to veto police reform bill

US President Donald Trump has threatened to veto a police reform bill passed by the US Congress. The bill was passed in the lower house of parliament on Thursday night.

The bill has been complicated by the pros and cons of Democrats and Republicans in Congress.

President Trump threatened to veto the bill for going against the police. There are doubts about the consequences of the bill. News from Al Jazeera.

The movement began on May 25 in Minnesota, USA, after the death of the black George Floyd in police torture. The protesters demanded that the police department be reformed and funding stopped, alleging racial discrimination.

The bill calls for an end to events such as the assassination of George Floyd. At the same time, there is an opportunity to file a case against the illegal activities of the police.

It has also been suggested that an independent inquiry be conducted into the abuse of police power and that some police members be transferred to the community. The House of Representatives has approved 2.5 billion dollars for this.

Democrats introduced the bill in parliament, largely as a result of widespread protests by civil rights groups across the country against racial discrimination. President Trump also signed an executive order on police reform in the face of gunfire over the issue.

Democrat Jim McGovern, a member of the House of Representatives, said police in the United States are killing three times as many blacks as a white man. Police shootings, arrests, and detentions are much higher in the United States than in other developed countries.

“Democrats want to shake up our police department,” said President Trump at the White House. The White House has warned that the president will veto the bill because it is against the interests of the police union.

Earlier, Republicans in the Senate proposed a new 6 billion for the police. But it fails. Civil rights groups have also strongly opposed the bill.
