Donald Trump dodges question on systemic racism

President Donald Trump dodged the question of whether or not systemic racism in policing exists as he wraps up a tour in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Trump on Tuesday toured damage caused amid unrest that followed the August 23 shooting of Jacob Blake, who is black. He says police are sometimes under tremendous pressure and don’t handle it well.

Trump is trying to reinforce his support for police leading up to the November 3 elections. He focused his attention Tuesday on the critical swing state of Wisconsin.
