The executive order on law enforcement reform that President Trump is set to sign on Tuesday is the opposite of "defund the police," a rallying cry for many protesters angered by the death of George Floyd, Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday morning.⁣ ⁣ "The president will take decisive action," Pence said. "He will sign an executive order that will set into motion new resources, new standards on the use of force, a way to be able to track when we see inappropriate use of force and also resources to encourage using other public officials like social workers in interaction with the public. ... We're not going to defund the police, quite the contrary."⁣ ⁣ Some say "defund the police" means diverting police department funding to alleviate poverty and therefore reduce crime, while others say it means abolishing police departments entirely.⁣ ⁣ Go to the link in our bio for more on this story.
